No Trend - Too Many Humans

'Too Many Humans'
No Trend
1984

Genre/s: Noise Rock, No Wave, Hardcore, Noise Punk
For Fans Of: Brainbombs, Mars, DNA, Flipper, Sonic Youth

No Trend are one of the few bands I consider to be a 'legitimate' punk band. They really didn't give a shit. Their music's the manifestation of their disillusionment with the then current punk/hardcore scene and it's contrived, pigeonholed sound, and I think that's great. Taking cues from the more dissonant no wave bands of the New York scene, throwing in the aggression of punk and hardcore and the dense and glueing it together with the weirdness and experimental edge that made Sonic Youth so popular - No Trend's unique style made them one of the more interesting acts to appear in the 1980s punk scene. The lyrics and vocal delivery are incredibly scathing and cynical,  the guitars scrape and grind and fuzz in a horrendous display of atonality all while strong, repetitive and unusually cohesive bass lines keep everything from collapsing in on itself. No Trend went on to evolve into a jazz/funk/punk fusion band, and while their sound had lost it's abrasive ege they still managed to be 1000x more 'punk' than half the bands around today, purely because of their uncompromising dedication to churning out weird, challenging music.
