NOH MERCY- s/t - CD - SUPERIOR VIADUCT

click to enlarge Full album by the truly incredible San Francisco legends NOH MERCY! More than 30 years after it was recorded, now at last offered to the world. 2 of these songs had been published on the "Earcom #3" 2x7" compilation, but all other 8 tracks, recorded by Fluxus artist and electronics genius Tommy Tadlock (TUXEDOMOON), remained to be unreleased until now!
Formed in San Francisco in 1977, NOH MERCY was comprised of only two women: Esmeralda (vocals) and Tony Hotel (drums). The band's motto was "no boys on guitars", as a reaction against male-dominated Rock'n'Roll. They didn't need boys (and only a few more instruments on some of the songs here). They harnessed the angularity of DEVO, the Punk-poet attitude of PATTI SMITH and LYDIA LUNCH, and the art-spectacle of ROXY MUSIC, all ground down to a minimalist core of voice and drums. Those knowing their 2 previously released songs, consider them to be as essential within Post-Punk/No Wave as the SLITS, RAINCOATS, LILIPUT, etc... and NOH MERCY preceded the defiant queer rebellion of Riot Grrrl and the frenetic art-punk minimalism of the early 21st century by decades!
