THE NIHILIST SPASM BAND "No Record" [12" LP, Black Vinyl]
2000 - Rock from Canada
Mad music from the Nihilist Spasm Band - a group who really live up to their name from the very first moments of the record! The set begins with "Destroy The Nations" - a track that's meaner, nastier, and more mindbending than anything you'll ever hear from any of the wildest other acts of the late 60s - and the rest of the record really follows suit - with energy that's more late 70s noise than any of the hippie dippy politics of the time - much more of a precursor to Pere Ubu, and maybe the entire No Wave scene in New York! Guitar, drums, bass, theremin, and a surprising amount of kazoo collide with unbridled improvisatory energy - and titles include "Destroy The Nations", "Oh Brian Dibb", "Dog Face Man", "When In London Sleep At The York Hotel", and "Destroy The Nations Again".
