In the meantime here are two songs from previous records of both bands, mastered here.


No More Art’s 7″ mastered here, reviewed at Razorcake!

“Peripeteia” b/w “Evil Eye”: 7”
No More Art might be from Hamburg, Germany, but they sound like they’re from L.A. circa 1980. Very pretty female vocals are the driving force here, with a super punchy, almost tinny background behind it. This single is a total charmer. The vocals are going to lead to a lot of X comparisons, but it’s more like a female-fronted, European version of Adolescents. No More Art has this record and other recordings available free of charge on their site, but don’t be a dick. Buy the vinyl! –Art Ettinger (New Dark Age,

No More Art‘s 7″ Perepetia, mastered here, reviewed at

“No More Art is a quartet from Hamburg, Germany that has created a two track seven-inch that is close to being one of the best singles I’ve heard in years. Okay, admittedly when there are only two tracks it’s more difficult to have a stinker amongst the output, but regardless of that, here I have that gem that we all crave for in that it’s just a great record from a band that has managed to create a wonderfully straightforward but effective sound.

This record covers a number of bases in terms of that sound, with a bit of a Scandinavian influence mixed in with that of some of the Dangerhouse era bands along with a blend of garage punk and new wave to bring it all together in a marvelous amalgam that is totally irresistible.

Vocalist Jessica Milone’s (Milo) voice is perfect for this kind of music, providing an impeccable delivery over both tracks. Will Kinser (also of Red Dons) lays down some simple but hugely effective lead guitar to provide a solid melodic feel to the music whilst, on bass, Jonas Ball provides a pleasingly bouncy quality to it that is aided and abetted by a snappy drum sound courtesy of Juan Miguel Pardo, which keeps things racing along at a decent pace. All in all, this is the kind of single that you keep flipping over and over as it never loses its initial appeal.

This single is also available on Bandcamp, as is the four-track demo the band recorded which also includes these two songs but it must be noted that the additional two tracks on that demo are well worth getting hold of too.


I had to look up the word “perepeteia” and a brief explanation is that it’s an element of tragedy as espoused by Aristotle:

The Perepetia is the fatal working of the plot to result the opposite of that intended. For example events do not turn up according to the intentions of expectations of the hero/heroine. They move in an opposite direction to his/her intention.”

Nervous powerpop from Denton by people who have brought you bands like Maaster Gaiden, Stymie, and A.N.S. This new 7″ follows two LPs (one on Alive and one on Red Lounge) and a split 10″ with Something Fierce (Dirtnap). Fucking great stuff!”

Mastering the new recordings by Occult Detective Club from Denton, Texas for their forthcoming Dirt Cult record.

The band features former members of Maaster Gaiden, Secret Bangs, A.N.S, Stymie, Collick, Druids on Parade, Koji Kondo, and Mass Sterilization.

They released the ten song LP Tortures in spring 2010 on Red Lounge Records. Their second album Crimes was released February 2011 on Alive Natural Sound Records.


Mastering new songs for No More Art‘s forthcoming record on Deranged.

Listen to a song from their last release on .

“The next Release on Erste Theke is ready! No More Art is comprised of people from rather dissimilar backgrounds in music, but the elements are easy enough to lay out. There are the surf-drenched guitars, the complementary female vocals, and the rock ‘n’ roll frenzy of X (Los Angeles), some of what has been brewing in Denmark and Sweden over the last decades with bands like MASSHYSTERI / VICIOUS, and NO HOPE FOR THE KIDS, but also with lots of melody and leads that is reminiscent of 80’s LA bands like SOCIAL DISTORTION and ADOLESCENTS, but with a unique sound of their own as well. Lead singer Milo has been paying her dues for some years now as a singer song writer in her own solo project ROSIE TIE. Drummer Juan Miguel has been busy on the heavier side of music, playing guitar in bands like LOS DOLARES, ETACARINAE, and PELIGRO!, in Barcelona over the past decade. Will has also done time in many bands over the past decade with groups BORN/DEAD, DESOLATION, SUICIDE BOMB, DOPECHARGE, and most recently Portland’s RED DONS. Recorded by Dennis Rux at Yeah Yeah Yeah Studios and mastered by RED DONS Hajji Husayn in a 80s sound that made you KBD fans out there forget the modern world. Enjoy the first No More Art songs!

No More Art is my new band in Hamburg Germany. This is our first demo after playing for a very short while together. It was recorded in HH at Yeah Yeah Yeah Studios with Dennis Rux and mastered by Hajji Husayn of Red Dons. We tried to go for a warm sound that you can hear every instrument, the end result is pretty good I think.This tape is available through Kink Records here in Europe.”
