NO THANKS is the seventh and final album by Canadian genre-bending artist Gregory Pepper & His Problems. The 25-minute denouement was single handedly written and recorded by the elder statesman of basement pop using D.A.D. (Digital>Analog>Digital) technology. This final serving is a punishingly dense and saturated wall of twee. A cursory glance at the tracklist - NO FRIENDS, I JUST CALLED TO SAY I HATE YOU, I SHIT ON YOUR GRAVE, YOU'LL PAY - is fair warning of the brooding resentment and alienation bubbling below the sprightly melodies. And just so we’re all on the same page: There is no catharsis. The magic is gone and nothing is going to get better. If 2009’s WITH TRUMPETS FLARING was the coronation of Gregory Pepper, NO THANKS is his funeral march. Gregory Pepper & His Problems have received press and praise in PopMatters, Absolute Punk, Exclaim!, FLOOD Magazine, and Brooklyn Vegan. He is a longtime Fake Four Inc. artist who is deeply embedded in the underground hip hop world and even fronted a duo with super producer Factor Chandelier called Common Grackle which has released two albums on Fake Four Inc. Gregory Pepper has collaborated with Ceschi, AWOL One, MadadaM, Noah23, and Open Mike Eagle.
