Please click over to The Big Takeover for my review of NoMeansNo live.
Y'know in case I couldn't talk you into downloading any of the two gargantuan-sized NoMeansNo singles/comp tracks/live songs bootlegs (see HERE), then do not miss this exquisitely packaged 1993 single which contains the band's rip-snortin' cover of two seventies Vancouver punk classics; the Subhuman's "Oh Canaduh" and DOA's "New Age". Hell, even if you did take those, add this for the artwork alone (and add the chance to add these two tracks to your next playlist!)
This is, I believe, was the last NMN release to feature Andy Kerr. While the band did amazing work before his arrival and since his departure there is a fearsome intensity about the Kerr era that is hard to replicate.
Oh yeah all the crafty artwork is courtesy of punk artist John Yates who worked with Jello Biafra and briefly ran a label, Allied Records, which always looked stunning!
So what's your take on the Kerr era of NoMeansNo? Let us know in the COMMENTS section (where you'll find the Oh Canaduh/New Age 7" link).
