NO MARKS, THE: Light of One: LP

I was really shocked to find out that this band wasn’t Canadian. Right from the get-go, the No Marks sound to me like they stepped out of the indie/pop punk scene in Canada circa 1993. I think the singer sounds like KJ from Chixdiggit!, but Elise doesn’t really hear it. Musically, they remind me of some other Canuck bands of the era like Bum, The Stand GT, and Trigger Happy (when they sounded more like Big Drill Car than Good Riddance), but alas, they are from the U.K. I am told. No matter, I am claiming The No Marks as an honorable early ‘90s Canadian pop punk band. They can claim their status cards when they come and play here.
