¡NO! ★★★★ Last Of Our Kind

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC REVIEWS - COR­MAC LARKIN

Dublin free col­lec­tive ¡NO! de­scribe them­selves as a “para-psych im­pro­viser group”, and who are we to ar­gue? Gui­tarist and multi-reed player Fer­gus Cullen, bassist L Ron Cup­board, drum­mer Jamie Davis and gui­tarist and key­boardist Gra­ham Mont­gomery have been send­ing rip­ples through the lo­cal scene re­cently with im­pro­vised per­for­mances at Con­crete Soup in Smith­field’s Block T. Free-form post-rock, se­ri­al­ist grooves, industrial noise, spo­ken word and elec­tronic pro­cess­ing are all part of the ¡NO! ar­se­nal, along with good old-fash­ioned gui­tar dis­tor­tion, all de­liv­ered with the burning con­vic­tion of the anti-com­mer­cial mu­si­cal evan­ge­lists that they are. It’s not go­ing to go storm­ing up the charts any time soon, but do ¡NO! care? The clue is in the name. face­book.com/notwhatuno
