Nomeansno


Nomeansno – Rich guns

“Not knowing any guitar players at the time who were into what we were doing, Rob decided the only way we would be able to play our own music live would be as a two-piece, drums and bass. At the time it seemed like such a risky and potentially embarrassing thing to do, but I reluctantly agreed. Rob then proceeded to write songs specifically for that arrangement. This ultimately became our trademark – we could be different without really trying. We had no name, but Rob spotted the anti-rape slogan ‘no means no’ spraypainted on a garage somewhere in Vancouver and thought ‘that's the name for us’. Now with a name and a live set, it was time to join the fray, put something out and get in on a local gig.” John Wright
