about

5 tracks 74 minutes. An epic and varied attempt at a retrospective of the band's 24 year career. Includes `Sex mad' `The river' and `The day everything became nothing (live)'.

As an introduction to NoMeansNo it's almost flawless. It also serves as a perfect reminder that although the trio has left Alternative Tentacles to handle all future releases on their own label, the band is still relevant and reminding fans of their existence. Brilliant!

Track: 1 taken from 0 + 2 = 1.
Tracks: 2 and 12 taken from Sex Mad.
Tracks: 3 and 14 taken from Small Parts Isolated And Destroyed.
Track: 4 taken from You Kill Me.
Tracks: 5 and 9 taken from The Worldhood Of The World (As Such).
Tracks: 6 and 8 taken from Wrong.
Track: 7 taken from Why Do They Call Me Mr. Happy?.

about

Nomeansno 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.
