I know it's been said already, but MOB pre-date pretty much ALL bands that sound even remotely like them. These guys are borrowed from left and right. REM called them an influence way back when that band was starting out, they even covered Revolver early on.
MOB's only full length album VS. came out in 1982 soon before they broke up. It takes a few listens before you realize you will never escape this music again, it is permanently stuck in your brain. I'm REALLY glad they started up again, even if they don't have Martin Swope this time (the original tape looper). Here's hoping more shows make it to the archive. Check this out, it's worth your while.
4 stars only because it's not a soundboard!

"New song" is surely "2wice," which will appear with the (astonishing) "Spider's Web" on the new MoB album, "The Obliterati," dropping May 23 courtesy the good folks at Matador Records. But I digress...
Highlights include an especially fiery performance of the Wipers' "Youth of America" and a beautiful rendition of "What We Really Were" that features what might be Bob's most impressive loop ever (a psychedelic, chime-like effect over the bridge -- jaw-dropping).
Now if we can only get the band's most recent show in NYC. I want to hear that cover of Wire's "Dot Dash" post haste.
