Thislte bond it is the cheapest option as it less labour intensive.
Other options are use a grinder or the back of a brick hammer over the areas where you applying adhesive to create a key.
Personally iwouldnt worry to much as the adhesive will stick but prob best to give a good coat of wba as it'l only cost you 2 tubs max on a realy glossy surface the stuff goes a long way.

If the blockwork ok you could foam stick the boards to the wall. It's all to do with the paint what condition it is in.

Never liked the idea of dabbing over bond-it/wba, all that weight hanging on a thin skin!

Its quickest option.The adhesive sticks like s**t to a blanket there wont be any problems if done correctly with enough adhesive in the right places
other options are batten and board
Burn the gloss of with with heat gun and dab
chip away with hammer and dab
render with eml and skim
