Nomeansno was my first punk show ever, back in '93 or '94 at the Eureka Municipal Auditorium with local band Couch. The show blew my mind, and I've been a fan of this crazy Canadian band ever since. Never destined for "mainstream" success, Nomeansno's jazzy, thrashy math-rock sound is just too complex, too aggressive, and too damn GOOD to appeal to the average schmuck, although I assume the tastes of my beloved readers are much more sophisticated than that. Here's the 1985 EP "You Kill Me", packaged with their 1986 full-length "Sex Mad". Dig it.
