Review of Nomeansno – Thunder Bay, Oct. 25, 2011

Legendary Victory, BC progressive punk band Nomeansno played Thunder Bay as part of their Canadian tour this week.  Openers were Forever Dead and Ford Pier.  Forever Dead played a solid show as is expected of this local Thunder Bay punk/rockabilly band.  Ford Pier were up next and played a slightly intense set that had most people watching the stage with about 1/3 of the crowd outside smoking which is usual for an opening band in this city.  Nomeansno hit the stage around midnight and played about two hours of super sick progpunk.  They played a lot of newer material and also busted out some older classics like I Got A Gun.  The band is well grey.  The oldest member, Rob Wright (bass/vocals) was born in 1954 making him like 57 years old.  It’s amazing that a 57 year old man can still play and sing as well as he can.  The set they played was as blistering and the songs as epic as ever and I would have no problem recommending anyone go see them. For $15 at the door, it is worth every dollar.  Like a fine wine, Nomeansno just keep getting better with age.
