GNOB are a heavy psych 4-piece band based in and around East London. They are influenced by psychedelic and traditional music from around the world, resulting in an eclectic fusion of Eastern, Arabic, psych, rock, and fuzz. Formed in 2014 by drummer Morten Jorgensen (Last Seen Wearing) and guitar/bass player Glenn Wild (Puffer) in Hackney Wick, London. They were soon joined by guitarist/vocalist Nicholas Georgiou (Sonic Mass) and released their self-recorded debut EP, ‘Temple of Sinners’, in 2015.  This was followed later that year by their first studio recording, the ‘Reverend Bill’s One-Way Trip/Nomad’ single, as well as ‘Cosmosis’ (a collection of improvisations from their early days as a duo). Following the departure of Glenn early in 2016, bass player Ben Le Marchant (also of Sonic Mass) joined the group. This line up recorded the ‘Shrunken Head’ EP, released in 2017, and their debut full-length album, ‘Electric Dream Demon’, released in 2018 on Drone Rock Records.

In 2019, Nicholas left the band to form Trigger alongside Ben and drummer Richard Noakes (Derelics). Trigger went on in late 2020 to release the ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ EP.  Ben remained in GNOB and he and Morten recruited guitarist Luke Tomkins (Vendorbelly). They released the self-recorded ‘High Priestess’ EP in early 2020.  Morten left the country in late 2020, and the future of GNOB was uncertain until Nicholas re-joined the band in 2021, bringing Richard with him on drums. After gigging extensively in London and the South-East across late 2021 through 2022, the group went into the studio to record the next full-length album. The title of the new album, ‘GNOB II’, gives a nod to the fact that no founding member remains in the band, yet still the spirit of GNOB lives on. GNOB are:-

Nicholas Georgiou – Guitar, Vocals

Ben Kenobi Le Marchant – Bass Guitar
