Besides having the coolest name ever, TIRED FROM NOW ON made the most brutal music to ever come out of Gainesville. After self-releasing a 7" and adding songs to a couple splits and compilations, TFNO post-humously unleashed ‚??Romantic.' Nine songs of pure frenzied emotion on see-through, red vinyl only. No CD's, you wussy‚?¶

I have never heard of another band even coming close to TFNO's sound. The bass rumbles, the drums gallop, and the guitars intertwine, sometimes seemingly playing two completely different songs, before resulting in all-out discord. But the delivery of the lyrics is what sets them apart from other noise merchants. Major's intense howls seer the ears, burning the words into your brain. In ‚??A Friend, No Trend, The End,' listen to him breath in during the silence before screaming "What does he have that I don't?" Wow.

This isn't verse/chorus/verse hardcore. Time and key changes galore keep it interesting and refreshing. The idea of negative space comes into play as well: these songs don't rush in to kill you. They take their sweet time, slowly building or completely stopping and pummel you when they're good and ready.

But the album's best and heaviest (what an understatement‚?¶) moment is the amazing guitar riffing in ‚??Too Irrational To Teach.' AHHH! The guitar line is continually repeated and repeated and pounded into your head, etching itself in your memory. There is nothing heavier, more furious, more brutal.

After TFNO's demise, some of the players went on to form STRIKEFORCE DIABLO, TRUE NORTH, and others and record amazing albums as well.

Buy a record player.

Romantic is an incredible record and came on EXTREMEly THICK red vinyl. This was No Idea's 1st LP record ever. The guys went on to play in Strikeforce Diablo (who is now playing out again), and Crucible (gainesville's metal masters). And props must be given to Bryan Jones creator of all of TFNO's artwork. Also If you like this LP make sure to pick up their 1st 7" (my favorite work of theirs) and the Tour diary 7" comp.

to the guy not knowing if their is a scene on gainesville.....um, no there isn't. Just a few slack-jaws w/ guitars and a borrowed amp.

i think that the author of the really long comment was attempting to make a point. i had recently reviewed the BEASTIE BOYS EP "Aglio E Olio" and mentioned hardcore not being about 'listening to PANTERA and drop-D tuning.' This guy obviously thinks that TFNO is drop-D/metal-based hardcore and that my reviewing both merits a beating by the punk police. maybe i do. who cares. come get some fuckers.

Jesus Christ??? such a long ass comment..especially it having nothing to do with TFNO.

And to the guy inquiring about this on CD format...Yep I can get it, I'll burn it for free..not a problem.(But if you live in Botswana or some shit..now thats a different story) I will e-mail you soon and get your mailing address and all the necessary stuff.

From their humble beginnings, the Beastie Boys have evolved into one of the most prolific, inspiring groups in years. But we all know that they were punk before they were hip-hop. So every once in while, they grace us with a guitar-bass-drums rave-up to remind us of what they once were (see ‘Time for Livin’’ on Check Your Head and ‘Tough Guy’ and ‘Heart Attack Man’ on Ill Communication, not to mention all the really early stuff on Some Old Bullshit…).

In 1995, they released The Aglio E Olio EP. Eight tracks that could have been written and recorded in 1983. Straight up hardcore ala MINOR THREAT and, well, themselves. Think ‘Egg Raid on Mojo Part 2.’ Yeah! Distorted bass, simple, frantic drums, cheap-distortion-pedal guitars, and lots of hollerin’ combine to make this record more than just a throwback.

Highlights include the first track ‘Brand New’ and ADRock’s wacky guitar noodling, ‘Nervous Assistant’s’ cool break-down chorus, and Mike D’s spoken word interlude in ‘Can’t Think Straight’ is flat out hilarious. These songs are a testament to times when hardcore was about attitude, not drop-D tuning, playing really fast, and listening to too much Pantera.

From their humble beginnings, the Beastie Boys have evolved into one of the most prolific, inspiring groups in years. But we all know that they were punk before they were hip-hop. So every once in while, they grace us with a guitar-bass-drums rave-up to remind us of what they once were (see ‘Time for Livin’’ on Check Your Head and ‘Tough Guy’ and ‘Heart Attack Man’ on Ill Communication, not to mention all the really early stuff on Some Old Bullshit…).

In 1995, they released The Aglio E Olio EP. Eight tracks that could have been written and recorded in 1983. Straight up hardcore ala MINOR THREAT and, well, themselves. Think ‘Egg Raid on Mojo Part 2.’ Yeah! Distorted bass, simple, frantic drums, cheap-distortion-pedal guitars, and lots of hollerin’ combine to make this record more than just a throwback.

Highlights include the first track ‘Brand New’ and ADRock’s wacky guitar noodling, ‘Nervous Assistant’s’ cool break-down chorus, and Mike D’s spoken word interlude in ‘Can’t Think Straight’ is flat out hilarious. These songs are a testament to times when hardcore was about attitude, not drop-D tuning, playing really fast, and listening to too much Pantera.

Well, I don't own this on CD but the place I work has it in that format. The label who pressed it is Flying Nun Records...Located here in NC. The site has been down for sometime now (I think they went bankrupt) but you can keep trying at www.flyingnun.com.

What can I say? Im a vinyl nut too.

Gainesville would be in Florida. The city is home to the University of Florida, well known for their college basketball and football teams. Fuled By Ramen and No Idea records are located in Gainesville. Just a couple of notable bands from Gainesville are Less Than Jake, Hot Water Music, and Shai Hulud (if I'm not mistaken).

Gotta love the first line: "TIRED FROM NOW ON made the most brutal music to ever come out of Gainesville" -- where the fuck is Gainseville and how many punk bands came out of it? I'm going to say my punk band put out the most powerful music from FORKS, WA ever!! Haha. Sorry, just found it amusing. For all I know there is a huge scene in this Gainseville. Anyway, point being I'm gonna have to check these guys out.

Exhaustra reviews cooler albums than anyone else on here. Nice job. Oh, and the best band name goes to anything Jimmy the Truth has been in: Don's Ex-Girlfriend, Panthro UK United 13, superchinchillarescuemission... I rest my case. Now I need to put on the TFNO record again. It's been a while. Again, nice job.
