NoMeansNo and the Hanson Brothers To Hit the Road in April

BY Keith CarmanPublished Feb 13, 2009

Vancouver punk rockers are like cockroaches and Keith Richards: they just can't be put down for good. As with hometown brethren D.O.A., NoMeansNo have been blasting chaotic, cacophonous music since the late '70s. Well, 1979 to be exact. And, during that time, they've released 12 albums, seven EPs and a whack of other singles and oddities.

And as their last effort, 2006's All Roads Lead To Ausfahrt, proved, there's no sign of slowing down. Not as progressive trio NoMeansNo or as the Hanson Brothers, a Ramones-ish pop punk quartet dedicated to hockey and inspired by the three brothers who made the Paul Neuman flick Slap Shot cool.

While NoMeansNo have yet to follow up All Roads Lead To Ausfahrt, the Hanson Brothers have just released live CD/DVD It's A Living, giving reason for "both" acts to hit the road and venture across the Great White North. Watch for them this April:
