Album Notes
After the demise of Heatmiser, Elliott Smith continued with his solo career. Co-songwriter and co-front man Neil Gust, still very much into the power of a rock band, formed a new outfit, No. 2, with one-time Elliott Smith drummer Paul Pulvirenti and Jim Talstra (Minus 5, The Maroons) on bass & vocals.

The Northwest Supergroup then toured relentlessly, hitting the road with Elliott Smith, supporting him on his XO Tour. Following the Elliott Smith tour, No. 2 came back home, completed a few headlining Northwest tours, and then left for a national tour with Quasi. After the Quasi tour, No. 2 landed a West Coast tour with Sleater-Kinney and select dates with Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks.

With the release of their sophomore full-length, "What Does Good Luck Bring?", No. 2 plans to once again bring the show on the road. Tours are planned for the winter of 2002 and spring of 2003.

No. 2's debut full-length, No Memory, which featured guest appearances by Elliott Smith and Quasi's Sam Coomes, found Gust delivering a timeless pop gem. With "What Does Good Luck Bring?" fans of No. 2 will get what they have come to expect from the band's live show, a loud, guitar-driven rock record, one that still maintains the hooks and melodic nature of Gust's songwriting, but isn't afraid to let it all go. And, a guest appearance by Quasi's Sam Coomes makes "What Does Good Luck Bring?" even more appealing to fans of No. 2 and Quasi.

Look out, because "What Does Good Luck Bring?" will excite fans of No. 2, giving them everything they want and more. This is No. 2 at their best, rocking out and having a good time, while unleashing a monster melodic masterpiece.

In the style ofHeatmiser...
Great little (about 40 min.) record. The voice of Heatmiser lives on...Catchy numbers, funky changes, and the ever popular vague lyrics. If you like Heatmiser, you'll enjoy this just as well.

Mark Iovino

Amazing Indie Pop....
If you love Heatmiser, Elliott Smith, you'll Love No. 2. I loved the first album and the second is just as good.

Bob Burns

I can't get the freakin' AWESOME hook in the first song out of my head
Solid hooks from beginning to end. Pretty diverse melodies and stylings as well. My only complaint is with the length (around 40 minutes), but then music this good often makes me greedy for more or the same.
