Nomeansno last released All Roads Lead to Ausfahrt in 2006.
NoMeansNo is one of Western Canada's greatest music exports. Their smart and edgy songs, along with their pioneering DIY ethic, influenced many and paved the way for Canada's indie revolution in the 90's. I think I saw them play about a hundred times as a kid in Victoria in the 80's, and they always blew the roof off the venue! I can't think of a more deserving and fitting inductee into the WCMA Hall of Fame.

Adam E. here with four new reviews. I'm a little on edge today, because overnight a king cobra escaped from its owner's home in the Orlando area. Granted, I'm about three hours from there, but those things travel fast, and I am no Steve Irwin when it comes to snakes.
You can check out any of our reviews right here
