Victoria, British Columbia

Nomeansno is a Canadian punk rock band originally from Victoria, now located in Vancouver. Formed in 1979 by brothers Rob & John Wright, their name derives from an anti-date rape slogan. The press described their earliest work as "Devo on a jazz trip, Motörhead after art school, or Wire on psychotic steroids." They are credited with being an influence on, or maybe the genesis of math rock.
