No Sir / Santa Rosa, CA

About

From Santa Rosa, California, No Sir (featuring members of Sabertooth Zombie and Creative Adult) hail from within a flourishing circle of current West Coast hardcore punk bands - bands like Ghostlimb, Loma Prieta, Punch, Trash Talk, and Ceremony. Varying in style, these Golden State bands of today are bonded by a general aesthetic: highly artistic and intellectual yet determined to keep things raw, lo-fi, and DIY. Gut-level music for the thinking man. No Sir are representatives of this modern scene but can also be understood in a historical context, as heirs to the legacy of the older generation of Californians - the extreme hardcore punk bands that have filled the pages of Maximumrocknroll for years, from Dead And Gone to Talk Is Poison to Look Back And Laugh.
