Album Notes
random neon

horns, wah guitar, star time on the prairie plains, and it is important to know this music comes from the prairies, that it is open,

strings on the left channel
move guitar on the right
theez riddles they speek

/critical shorthand/
Yes jamming with a Salvation Army band after Satie's whiskey still blew sky high, staining the clouds rouge . . .

NO BIRDS are: Mitch Grier Will Kaufhold Ali Lake Ian Potts Adrienne Tastad Mehta Youngs Nathan Young Robin Wilson Charlotte Dykes

only a few years young, they pledge allegiance to fury, to the bloody run out groove, to mercy, to power unbound, to heaven in rock, to each other

/more critical shorthand/
Mogwai sleeps with Godspeed on a flea-bitten mattress, they both enjoy it and make out in the sun for hours after . . .

men and women make up this band, among the finest they are, they do what they do, this should not be underestimated, I have drank and played with them all at one time or another and they come from fine stock, yes they do, they are from SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN, CANADA with an album called DON'T RELY ON DYING YOUNG on JIMMY GINTHER and STEVIE REEDS' fine Teargas Recording Tree, with another on the way soon . . .

so, yeah, the sun rises, the clouds part, I'm on my way to work at a job I hate, but there is always music, my friends, the song that plays on, MARVIN GAYE loves me, NO BIRDS love me, and that's good enough right now baby . . .

Editor's review from

Twentieth century classical music collides with 21st century post rock in the dizzying stylistic amalgam of No Birds. Gently plucked electric guitars and drums lead the way for horn and string sections that, in turn, disappear behind walls o f chaotic distortion. No Birds are postmodernists illustrating the complexities of modern life.


No Birds began August, 2003 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (originally named "It Will Clearly Be A Pyramid"). Their first timid public appearance was in an echo-y community hall, opening for local punk-rock bands. They were flabbergasted when people approached with compliments after their set, and when Steve Reed of Teargas Recording Tree expressed interest in recording their material, they decided to stick together and make more music.

Since then, they have played with many notable Canadian and international bands and musicians such as Clann Zu, Sea Ray, A Northern Chorus, Fractal Pattern, The Faunts, All Purpose Voltage Heroes, The Absent Sound, Blood Music, Mahogany Frog, Holzkopf, and Maybe Smith. They sold over 200 copies of their first release, 'Don't rely on dying young,' in Saskatoon and hope to find wider distribution of it and their up-coming second album, 'Flowers', during a cross-Canada tour in August, 2005. 'Flowers' will be released in early July with the help of Teargas Recording Tree.
