No Trend - Too Many Humans/Teen Love

No Trend

Too Many Humans/Teen Love (5xLP)

Release date: July 31, 2020
Box set
Label: Drag City
Format: 7" , Box Set
The ultimate early No Trend comp (circa '82-'83): the post-punk outliers' first album, 'Too Many Humans' and both 12'' and 7' versions of the 'Teen Love' EP - PLUS a double-disc with their first demo tape, two live shows, and all the album tracks! PLUS a 42 page booklet with photos, graphics and an oral history of the period. PLUS a wealth of inserts, flyers and weird sh*t. All packaging as originally released, and housed in plain white box with appropriate 'NO' and 'TREND' sides. No Trend's early 80s hardcore angst elevated to post-punk level via satiric lyrics, Frank Price's droning guitar and the relentless roll of the rhythm section. Jeff Metnges' scream is most emo, albeit sarcastically-toned most of the time; his derision was paramount. Punk was a pose; No Trend were a commentary. Following the ethos of their name, they made entirely different music in the remainder of their existence. This is the definitive early No Trend, with all the ephemera supplied for a virtual hands-on rediscovery.
