The fact that 8 people have voted crap, it blows my mind. I can't find anything wrong with this band, but maybe it's because I'm a fan. Seriously, I love every single nomeansno song. Even "Hunt the She-beast". Even mother-fucking "Ghosts". I don't get why everybody hate "Ghosts". The last album it's a bit Hanson brothers-y... So what? I fucking love the Hanson Brothers.

Aesthetics are cool, songs are awesome, they look like nice guys, song-writing it's simple, complex and dinamic at the same time... Great band.

Great band. Sex Mad, Small Parts Isolated and Destroyed, and Wrong are all incredible records, and the EP's from this time have their charms/great songs as well. The band isn't without their problems at times: "Hunt The She Beast" and "Beauty and the Beast" both suck more dick than the average member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and "Cats, Sex and Nazis" off of Mr. Happy (?) was godawful. However, any band that comes up with the first side of Sex Mad alone could never, ever, in a thousand years, be considered crap.

NomeansnomeansNOTCRAP.

I have considered making a Thunderdome with Nomeansno in it for some time.
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

I saw these guys at a place called the El Torreon in KC once. They were great. I think it was during the One tour. They all seemed really friendly and down to earth. I remember they were all wearing Arthur Bryant's BBQ T shirts. I'm sure they gorged themselves before the show. NOT CRAP.

Rank!

1) Wrong
2) The Day Everything Became Nothing 12''
3) Why Do They Call Me Mr. Happy? 12'' version

and a very close 4th, due only to length, has to be The Power of Positive Thinking 12''. two outstanding tracks (both definitely favourites of mine) and a great cover. shit, i may have to edit and slip this guy into 3rd place...


haven't heard All Roads Lead To Ausfahrt or the tour EP's.


incredible live act. way NC.

Sex Mad is #1. I think there are only 2 or 3 songs on that album that aren't perfect.
I'd put Wrong and Small Parts on equal footing for second place.

Toss-up between Small Parts and Sex Mad for first.

I have to listen to make sure.

Wrong is great too.

The Kerr era of this band was so fucking great.

no way Small Parts Isolated And Destroyed is as great a listen as perfectly succinct The Day Everything Became Nothing.

(listening right now just to be sure...



naah... definitely not.)


Sex Mad is pretty great but does has a few duds.

This has gotta be the highest quality live footage of Kerr-era NMN. The video is edited together from at least three shows, but it's perfectly synced and the sound is obviously taken from the board. Kerr is thrilling.

"Obsessed" and "No Fgnuikc" are the only two duds on the album i can think of. maybe "love thang" but i like that song too.

"Love Thang" is a rager of a song. The other two are indeed duds.
