about

Extradition Order’s “American Prometheus” album is a co-release between five labels: Gare Du Nord, Blang, Jesus Factory, Helen Llewellyn Product 19, and I Blame The Parents.

“A Northern Soul album about the atomic bomb” is how the band have referred to it during its creation - a great tagline….maybe that’s all you need to read…..but of course it’s not quite as simple as that.

After their astute gothic indie dissection of the Kennedy dynasty on their previous album, EO’s obsession with US politics and history turns to the life and career of J Robert Oppenheimer around the Manhattan Project and the development of the first A-bomb.

The songs cover the science a little, but also Oppenheimer’s private and political life and legacy - the album concludes with the reminder that he was nominated for the Nobel Prize three times but never won it.

The album is dedicated to EO founder member Nick Boardman who sadly passed away in 2018 but whose bass hooks and singing run through this record at its foundations.

It’s in tribute to Nick that all five labels who have been involved in previous Extradition Order releases have joined forces to co-release and co-promote this album.
