These days, punk is like classic rock. It’s “oldies”. People who liked punk when it was actually happening are in old age homes now. They have great-grandchildren. They remember the time before there was electricity.
Nomeansno are like that. They started their band in 1979, which apart from being 33 1/3 years ago (which is coincidentally the number of rounds per minute on a long-playing vinyl record), is also before the invention of the motor car. Go on, look it up.
Nomeansno put out a record called Old, because that’s what they are. It’s been out of print for a while so we just pressed some more up in black & white splatter vinyl. Check this out.
Nomeansno are also touring. They do that a lot. Old people get stuck in their habits and they don’t like change. They’re coming to the UK for the first time in about five years, and to be honest, in the live environment, they kick the shit out of any band formed since about 1999. Which is pretty impressive for old people.

Yes you heard correctly, our favourite canadian trio are back for a month long jaunt round Europe following their awesome appearance in England earlier this year as they clearly can’t stay away for too long!
Keep your eyes peeled for them riding into town on their white chargers (or whatever type of horse is more frequently used by the Mounties) to sweep you off your feet is a wholly chaotic fashion. Consider it a pre-Christmas treat from them to you…

Back in the nascent year of 2010, Tommy Hanson was otherwise occupied on a lecture circuit tour that began in Spuzzum, BC, and didn’t end until Penistone, UK.

Tommy took a break from his speaking engagements to help pack houses in the Big Bend Tour of 2010, featuring rowdy gigs in Corpus Christi, Brownsville and El Paso. The experience in nostaglia and tribute inspired Johnny Hanson to unearth a lost Hanson Brothers’ classic, Sudden Death.
Though the master tapes were long rumored to have been buried in a time capsule in Continue reading
