NO TREND: Tritonian Nash-Vegas Polyester Complex: CD

Jul 28, 2009

Man, some really good reissues are coming down the pike lately. This is a reissue of No Trend’s second album, and it’s still a doozy. Another one of those bands that defy categorization, these guys fell along the same lines as Tragic Mulatto, Scratch Acid and early Butthole Surfers, meaning that a wide variety of musical cues are tapped and then destroyed with drug-tinged wild abandon. The added horn section on this album adds class to the ensuing chaos. If you like your punk completely off the wall and sure to leave you guessing from one moment to the next, you’d be a fool not to snatch this up. Play it often and play it loud.
