You'd have to be deaf or dead to believe NMN are/were CRAP.

NEVER CRAP.

reading this poll made me happier, really. there is not a single crap thing about this band. and they are fucking huge in poland, which i find uber cool as i haven't heard their song a single time on the radio or anything, but still every of their gigs sells out instantly without any promotion. my favorite record is wrong, im kicking my self i borrowed this cassette to some dude i've lost contact with. it was like 4 years ago. 4 years without listening to "wrong". ouch.

The first time I ever saw them play in Kelowna in 1986 was one of the most amazing live performances I have ever seen. They were a revelation. Jesus Lizard like energy. I've seen them numerous times since. I find their records do not capture the live power. I should sell my copy of mama on ebay.

I had the picture above as my wallpaper for a whole four hours today, until it was pointed out to me after lunch that should a person not want to look at an amusing picture of the greatest living lyricist/bass player combination sat on a playground swing, that person might find it somewhat disturbing. It made the people who sit behind me uncomfortable. I bet Nomeansno would be amused by that. I have not replaced it with a photo of Mr Wright in nazi/vicar get-up.

Nomeansno. Wow.

Saw them at a party at Hampshire College around 89 or so. Had never heard of them. The opening act was a European group called the Ex who my friends were very excited to see. I have no idea if the Ex were any good because their guitarist broke his ankle during the first song and that was that.

Then Nomeansno came out and BURNED THE PLACE TO THE GROUND.

Wrong came out a little while later. Unbelievably great album.

Haven't paid much attention since, but they would have to have turned into Milli Vanilli to merit a Crap rating.

N/C.

These guys are fucking sweethearts. Don't know what this comment refers to. They're not tattooed and Rob might have a dog eared copy of Being and Time in the tour van (Nomobile), but a wittier band you'll seldom find, pace Shellac.



well when we played with them they were kind of standoffish until after we played, it just seemed that they were very sick of having to watch crap ass opening bands. They just seem like quiet people to me (which is strange in indy rock) after we played they can me up to me and told me how much they liked it, and then we talked about the band Wire... they seemed nice, however I can see how there standoffishness could come across as assholishness...

The new album All Roads Lead To Ausfahrt is excellent (on AntAcid via Ipecac, Southern in Europe)... at least as good as The Worldhood Of The World (As Such)... possibly their best since 0+2=1...

It's a little more poppy and "studio-ey" as far as going back to 3 minute-ish song lengths with only a couple topping 6 minutes, and doing things on songs that can't be necessarily replicated live fully... but it rocks non stop. And yeah, there's a bit of the Hansons creeping in on the new record. But it's quite the opposite of One (or No One) and Dance Of The Headless Bourgeiouse songwise... not to say those album are inferior, but just very different. Still "proggy" or "having lots of parts per song"-ey.

urgh, um, the store release date is actually next month. (i, uh, you see, bought one of the first copies for sale at the recent BC tour... :D)

The more I listen to this, the more it sounds like a really fucked up children's album... maybe the previous albums were like that too, but this one sounds slicker, so that quality stands out more now...(?) which I don't mind, but YMMV of course. (Then again, the biggest complaint I heard about the band is that Rob sounds like too much like a Muppet, so if you can get past that...)

After lots of listens, Ive come to the conclusion that Why Do They Call Me Mr. Happy? is the best of all their albums. Its very evenly balanced in terms of songs, and it plays amazingly from start to finish. You get The River, Slowly Melting, Land of the Living, and a bunch more classic tunes.

I know theyre playing Montreal on tour soon, and this time I wont be so stupid to miss them because of math homework. Thats right, world's biggest idiot right here...missed them because of math homework.

They had a t-shirt around the time of 0+2=1 that was exactly like the Rollins band t-shirts going around at the time, but instead of saying 'part animal, part machine' on the front it read 'all human', and on the back, over the top of the big black sun, instead of 'SEARCH AND DESTROY', it said 'stay at home - read a book'. So maybe you did the right thing. Although I doubt it.

I have seen the T-shirt from the Wrong era around Montreal, and if I remember correctly on the back it says in giant letters -

"BE STRONG. BE WRONG."

Totally awesome.

Yahoo. A live video circa '88 or '89 of "Small Parts Isolated and Destroyed" has just surfaced on You Tube.

Wow. What a steamroller of a band! Dearly wish I could've found them earlier.

Well, their records are everywhere even if they're not currently in print, you can always get them at the shows for cheaper than anywhere else, and they're blatantly going to carry on doing what they're doing until one of them drops dead, and they keep getting better too.
