NOMEANSMOCK: Throng: CD

Sep 23, 2009

This has to be one of the craziest records ever. It is nine Nomeansno covers, but none like you’ve ever heard before. Would you like a disco funk version of “Two Lips, Two Lungs and One Tongue”? How about a bluegrass hoedown cover of “Oh No, Bruno!”? As I understand it (as most of the information is in French) NomeansMOCK is a one-man project and, let me tell you, it is a massive undertaking of talent and a true labor of love. I can’t imagine all the work and time that went into making this. On repeated listenings, I have to say that my favorites are the Middle Eastern-flavored version of “Rags and Bones” and the crazy spy-theme take on “It’s Catching Up.” So much fun. As far as I know, this is only available as a download. If it ever gets pressed, I’m all over it. My only complaint is that I think the project should have been named FauxMeansFaux instead. The real Nomeansno are fans of this and so am I.
