No Trend’s negging anti-hardcore exploded out of Baltimore in 1983, harshly contrasting DC’s straight-edge punk scene. Confrontational, sarcastic and righteously set against the faddish ways of youth subculture, No Trend’s nihilistic rejection of punk was itself a vital punk-rock expression. The band continuing to writhe in iconoclastic glee for a few more years, but these remasters of their earliest recordings, plus demos and a live set, showcase the stark industrial rage that had few rivals for unsettling sounds in a VERY unsettling era.
