S.O.R.B. were a long-running Anarcho-Punk band, with an ever-changing line-up revolving around permanent drummer Chris Hogg. Their lyrics dealt with political and social issues, sometimes in a tongue-in-cheek manner.

Apparently, the name S.O.R.B. was initially chosen due to it being Bros backwards, though various phrases were later attributed to the acronym, most notably Savage Onslaught of Rabid Bananas. Other possible suggestions include Surgeons Of Research and Biotechnology and Sick On Ramsgate Beach...
