Live at La Salle St. Fridolin, Mulhouse 1 June 2004 during the second NSB European tour. A word about Hugh and The Nihilist Spasm Band by John Boyle: "The Nihilist Spasm Band began in the summer of 1965 in London, Ontario as an informal kazoo band of friends making a soundtrack for a film by the late artist Greg Curnoe. We soon built new, louder electric instruments. We played noise music because we did not know how to play real music. In 1969 we toured Europe for the first time, playing at the Paris Biennale des Jeunes and at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, England. It was not until 2004 that we toured Europe again, playing at Vandoeuvre-les-Nancys festival Musique Action, in Montreuil, in Hasselt, Belgium and in Mulhouse. This proved to be the last tour for Hugh McIntyre, our bassist for 39 years. Three months later, he died of heart failure. The very last night he played at our regular Monday night gig, members of R.E.M. showed up and jammed with us till 2 in the morning. Hugh had a wonderful time and went to hear their concert the next evening. This final recording of Hugh with the Spasm Band in Mulhouse is dedicated to his memory." - Les Mondes Mental.

Artist: NIHILIST SPASM BAND, THE
Title: No Record
Format: CD
Label: Lion Productions
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"One of very few indie label releases on Spin Magazines list of 100 top counter-cultural music, ahead of legends like Mulatu Astatke, Brigitte Fontaine, Pärson Sound, Ornette Coleman, Sun Ra and His Solar Arkestra, Harry Partch, and Os Mutantes. Zowie! The record youre holding is one of the masterworks of that big gray area of noise/weirdo/freak-out music. Its still hard to believe that No Record was released in 1968. This was a time when popular music was still growing up, and these outsider guys from Canada came out of nowhere and made this mindfuck of record that was years ahead of itself. And as with albums like Trout Mask Replica, and The Faust Tapes, it still sounds fresh today. No Record is mandatory listening. - Lasse Marhaug." Remastered from the original tapes. Includes 32-page booklet that includes the bands story, rare photos, and more. Limited edition of 500 copies." - Lion Productions.
