4 stars One of my favourite discoveries from the 'Nurse With Wound' list. Heavily psychedelic, half speed Beefheart with a dash of 'Throbbing Gristle' thrown in. A real hodge-podge of trance-like sounds which will leave you thoroughly disorientated.

'Debon' is very difficult to describe. In a way it's almost like a Spaghetti Western soundtrack with Krautrock overtones. There's some acid drenched guitar and some particularly drug addled vocals by the lead singer - whoever he is. That's the thing - no one seems to know anything about this mob at all. They're completely anonymous. At least I don't have to type in another unpronouncable and unspellable Japanese name!

If you're a fan of sleigh bells, of which there are plenty on this record - this may well be your cup of tea! It's all oddly hypnotic if taken in one sitting. Unless I'm much mistaken 'Brast Burn' are entirely the same outfit as the incredibly similar 'Kyuna Khyal' who released an even better album in 1976. The longer 'Debon' runs the better it gets. Recommended for fans of the stranger side of 'Faust'
