8/10 Brian Staff review, 18 November 2006
This 7" by The NBO's came out originally 14 years ago & sold 1000's. Or maybe not. Anyway, we've got some of this 7" called 'Perfectly Well Received', right & it's mental. It's like Nightingales having a retarded fight with really early Wedding Present whilst stuck in a Krautrock beehive. The vocals are robotic, bizarre & deadpan & probably the whole thing is influenced by an acid trip where Bogshed were mowing their grannies lawn in lingerie. The flip is metronomic indie techno, no joke. 'Zandvoort' was recorded with top indie kids The Keatons, back in t'day. Super! If you dig Sarandon, Big Flame & early New Order & agit-pop stuff then give this quirky bugger a try! Both the above courtesy of Colander Records!

9/10 Rogue Herman Customer review, 15th April 2015

On first inspection it appears Swindon-based three piece NBOs have tried to cram in too many of their references into one artefact. Its photocopied cut-out and stick-on sleeve recalls the Brechtian artwork seen on the Gang Of Four and Fire Engines early singles and it comes with its own highbrow booklet insert which either tries to explain the lyrics of its 19th Century English History lesson A-side or confuse listeners completely - I'm not sure which. However by the time this feedback-guitar layered drone is over - which doesn't take long given its marvellously short 1 min 37 secs running time - you know you have discovered something unusual and exciting.

Further plays reveal a mesmeric monotonous motorik 'klanging' layering of noise which would have Kevin Shields and Thurston Moore running for cover. The b-side perhaps attempts to counter this with an epic long drawn out Nile Rodgers-style 2 chord groovy disco chug over a glorious deliberately(?) naff synthetic drum machine beat. Again you're hooked and left wanting more. Weird and contradictory, challenging yet catchy. Not for everyone.
