As with The Suburbs, NNB also hailed from Minneapolis, MN. Although they did not release much material, they have always been one of my favorites from the area. Guitarist/Vocalist Mark Freeman was the driving force of the band. With tracks up to par with the likes of Television & Pere Ubu, they have often been described as producing "a wall of sound". The Slack/New World 7" was released in 1978 on Wave 7 records. They released two tracks on the Big Hits of Middle America Volume III on Twin Tone records 1979. Lastly there was one track off the No Magazine Flexi in 1979. There's also a video of One Mat Room recorded live at Hurrah's in 1981 floating around on You Tube. I also ripped the audio from this video and have included it with the 7". Enjoy!
