Nomeansno - It's Catching Up

Nomeansno made some of the best punk records of the 1980s. I saw them once in a venue so crammed and hot that the stage became invisible in a haze of sweat vapour. It poured out into the surrounding streets and mingled with the fog. We became one with the weather that night.

It's Catching Up is full on slabs of sound crashing into each other at strange angles, and despite that it keeps a fearsome momentum. But then, when you're running from the horror that it yourself, you do need to keep a fair old pace. In a better world, this would be considered a classic. From the 1989 album Wrong.
