Nomeansno Biography

Often bizarre punk band from Victoria, British Columbia, NoMeansNo formed around brothers Rob (bass, guitar, vocals) and John Wright (vocals, drums, keyboards). Andy Kerr joined up in the early '80s on guitar and vocals, and upon his departure in the early '90s, the band recruited guitarist Tom Holliston as his replacement. The group's punk hybrid also encompasses touches of jazz, funk, and metal, with special emphasis laid on jarring, hard-to-follow rhythms. Their lyrics are often self-consciously weird, but the group is frequently original and challenging. Countless releases over the years (their tenth full-length All Roads Lead to Ausfahrt appeared in 2006), the band issued music through labels like Alternative Tentacles, AntAcidAudio, Southern and their own, Wrong Records. The Wright brothers also spent time playing with their side band The Hanson Brothers, basically a ridiculous Ramones tribute band they did with some buddies. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide
