About this product

No Trend’s negging anti-hardcore exploded out of Washington DC in 1983, harshly contrasting that city's straight-edge punk scene. Confrontational, sarcastic and righteously set against the faddish ways of youth subculture, No Trend’s nihilistic rejection of punk was itself a vital punk-rock expression. The band continued to writhe in iconoclastic glee for a few more years, but these remasters of their earliest recordings, plus demos and a live set, showcase the stark industrial rage that had few rivals for unsettling sounds in a VERY unsettling era.

Includes exact reproductions of the Too Many Humans LP, "Teen Love" 12" & 7", plus two CDs containing those plus the first No Trend demo session, and two amazing live recordings from 1983. Also included: repro of No Trend fanzine #1, flyers, business card, and deluxe 40-page booklet with epic band history and interview, including many unseen photos and vintage show flyers.
