No Slogan Bio (from http://www.southkorerecords.com/bands/main.php?bid=8 )

No Slogan began in late 2002 as a side project for members of Pretentious Assholes, I Attack and Los Jodidos. Amador, Benny, Chris and Danny wanted to start a band that played in a very Midwest early 80's style. Although all of the members come from different backgrounds (grind/crust, metal, h.c., punk) we all had a love for early 80's Midwest punk (Toxic Reasons, Zero Boys, Naked Raygun, Articles of Faith, The Effigies, etc.). Let's face it No Slogan is a "wanna be" Bhopal Stiffs tribute band. However, we will never come close to being as good as them, but we try.

We don't remember when our first show was and all of that other bullshit, all we know is that we have played w/ a bunch of good bands, and some really shitty ones as well (often times us being the shitty one!). The important thing is that we have met a ton of cool people within the diy scene during our time in this band, and that's all that really matters.

Lyrically, our songs deal with/talk about circumstances that affect us (the band) day in, day out. Everything from gentrification in our neighborhoods, to our right to protest in the streets (even under the 2nd incarnation of the Daley Machine/Gestapo regime), how much we hate urban hipsters, the police state that inner city kids in Chicago live under, fashion punks who won't be punks by the time they reach 21, upper middle class white boys from the suburbs who think it's so cool and shocking to sport Swazi t-shirts, the exploitation of "illegal" workers in our communities and generally how much we hate right wing America amongst other things. No Slogan is a pro-Paiza (Mexican slang, look it up pendejo), kill whitey band (even the 1.5 Caucasians in the band hate whitey).

Collectively as a band we do consider ourselves a politically conscious band (not as politically active as we should be) and have no qualms about expressing our points of view on and off the microphone. We have no problem with punk as a primal scream, art expression or nihilism but when you start making comments or recordings bashing immigrants, women, minorities and gays then you are no longer apolitical or artistic. Such comments make you a dickhead and ARE political. Fuck trying to be like Sid Vicious, Stiv Bators was much cooler!

No Slogan will play just about anywhere (some people say we play out too much, fuck 'em) providing the space/show is not booked by or with racist, homophobic, major label sponsorship bands or people. If you have a basement or any other dive please contact us!!!
Currently the members in the band are:

Amamdor Castro Bass
Benny Hernandez Screams
Chris "Juan Jose" Cabay Guitar
Joe Skeletor Drums

Danny Attack was our first drummer and started the band w/ us but left us in November of 2004 because his metal band Malas and his other band I Attack are much better than us, and his other band mates kept bitching about he was in too many bands. In all honesty Danny left on very good terms and will be sorely missed.
Joe Skeletor is an old friend and has fit right in w/ the band, but he too is a band whore who plays in too many bands. Nonetheless, he has already written a shitload of new songs w/ us and loves Midwest punk as much as he loves grind core. Better yet he's also a "southsider"!!!!! Well Amador is a Humboldt Park native (pre-gentrification you fucking hipsters) but he's cool and a "Paiza" so he's off the hook. You don't have to be a "southsider" to be in the band but you do need ghetto credentials.
We don't know why the fuck you have read all of this, but if you have thanx!

Six song debut ep from these Chicago punx. Midtempo hardcore/ punk with more than just a hint of melody and politically aware lyrics, covering a wide range of topics. (http://www.xsentientx.com)

Super frickin’ simple socially-conscious hardcore here from these Chicago folks, plugging away over six mid-to-fast paced numbers featuring thick meat n’ potatoes riffing, simple beats and harshly-shouted vocals that aren’t afraid to stray into anthemic territory for a proper good ol’ fist-in-the-air singalong as they rail against fashion “punx”, the media, wage slavery and various other little bugbears sticking in their collective craw. It’s not jaw-droppingly amazing by any stretch of the imagination, just a solid little nugget of punk rock wholesomeness offering a glimmer of honesty in these often empty times.(http://www.collective-zine.co.uk)

6 songs of punk done in the fine Chicago tradition. Maximum Rock 'n'Roll compared this to the Freeze, but what do they know. The original ads compared it to Articles of Faith and Naked Raygun, but that's only becaue we didn't think anyone would remember who the Bhopal Stiffs were (http://www.sabotagerecords.net)

-Incredible followup by these old Chicago punks playing tribute to the classic Chicago sound- Naked Raygun, Articles of Faith, Bhopal Stiffs, etc. Short and sweet, four perfect songs of bitterness and hate that will get stuck in your head after the first listen. No more heros, no more egos. (http://www.dead-beat-records.com)

New record by Southside Chicago punks No Slogan. Four more songs of Chicago Punk rock in the Bhopal Stiffs/Articles of Faith tradition. (http://www.southkorerecords.com)

Joder esto es una puta pasada. Es como mezclar a las bandas KBD con el punk iberico de los 80s o incluso ese sonido wippers un poco oscuro y el hardcore de los 90s. Una pasada! (http://www.bocrust.com/discosenfermos/catalogo.html)

Here it is, the 3rd offering (7")by Chicago punkers, No Slogan. This EP starts off exactly where their last left off. 3 new tracks of dark yet melodic punk with great hooks and catchy choruses. I especially like the singing on this ep, snotty at times, but very aggressive. You can also see a lot of influence ranging from Articles of Faith to the Wipers on this recording.
Definitely their best record yet! (Desobediencia Records)

Energetic and tuneful songs and an impassioned vocal delivery. Echoes of Articles of Faith can be heard here, particularly for "Let's Kill," while "KGB" has a little bit Effigies and early Naked Raygun. In other words, No Slogan have a Chicago punk inspiration coursing through their veins but manage to avoid sounding derivative. Following me here? I just got their new LP that sounds good on first listen. It's on Residue Records and you can expect a review in the not-too-distant future (http://subvox.blogspot.com/2009_03_01_archive.html)

Jeez, this band just gets exponentially better with each release. “Let’s Kill,” a nice ’n’ tight thrasher, is the standout and the rest follow close behind. Crucial stuff. (http://www.razorcake.org)

As promised last time, here's a review of No Slogan's debut full-length and the 7" only hinted at how strong this release was going to turn out. The "m" term i.e. melodic has been bandied about quite a bit in this space now and forever but it can't be avoided in regard to No Slogan and neither can the references to Chicago punk history in the way they harness brawn with tunefulness from the Raygun-ish rock of "KGB," (re-done from the "Killed By Gentrification 7") to the Articles of Faith-driven style of "Trepidation." I'm not quite sure why they named a song "Howard Jones" and give thanks (another gratuitious AOF reference) that it ain't 80s synth-pop (although I am partial to some of that stuff) but another urgent-sounding hardcore song. And whereas HoJo had those uplifting type of lyrics, that ain't the case here. "Death Of Cool" observes the situation from Barack Obama's Chicago backyard and the question is "where is our prosperity?" Indeed. (http://subvox.blogspot.com/2009_04_01_archive.html)

First full-length LP by the hardest hitting punk/hardcore band to come out of Chicago in almost a decade. This LP rips from classic mid-tempo punk to raging hardcore by spitting out dark words of alienation and pure head-spinning anger. Instant punk classics like "Capacity to Hate" and "Dead" have a pounding texture to the guitars and drums that make the tracks both catchy and powerful at the same time. Aversion Therapy is No Slogan's strongest musical statement to date and captures the purest sound of abrasive, dark, and melodic hardcore-punk. Amazing and riveting cover artwork done by Chris Ilth (Functional Blackouts/Daily Void)(http://www.firestarterrecords.com)

Please allow me a moment a full-on fan-geek moment here, ‘cause truth be told, I saved listening to this until dead last. I didn’t do this because I was afraid it was gonna suck, but because I knew it was gonna be something truly special, and I was sure I was gonna need something to end things on an up note after some of the heinous stuff that was buried in the selections I strapped myself with this review cycle. This is one of my favorite bands currently making the rounds, but I was not remotely prepared for how good it was actually is. Dig catchy, no-frills hardcore from a band with just enough melodic sense to cram crazy hooks into the tunes they’re flailing away on? You got ’em. Prefer a more Naked Raygun-esque mid-tempo attack with said hooks infused with just a little off-kilter influences to give ’em a little tweak? Check. Are you just looking for a 12” slab of hit-encrusted vinyl that recalls the best of ‘80s punk rock without being saddled with all the annoying nostalgia? There are eleven tracks of prime punk fodder here for the taking that will shut the yap of the noisiest “I miss when punk was punk” whiner on your block, boyo. I’ve been listening to these guys consistently up the ante from one EP to the next and figured they’d have a helluva time surpassing their Killed by Gentrification EP, but this, their first full-length, is hands down their best effort yet, one that deserves to be among the most treasured items in your record collection and played incessantly. Dunno how many copies are out there, but I suggest you buy in bulk as soon as you can ’cause this is destined to be considered a classic in no time. Fuck yeah, I’m gushing, and I dare you to listen to this and manage not to do the same. –Jimmy Alvarado (http://www.razorcake.org)

These torch-holders for Chicago working class punk are here with their long-awaited debut full-length. In my opinion, this is their best stuff ever, combining the Naked Raygun-style hooks that made their No Pasaran 7" so great with a thicker, more melodic guitar sound that brings to mind Pegboy or Give Thanks-era Articles of Faith. Truly a monumental record from one of the few genuinely important punk bands out there. Residue Records. (http://www.sorrystaterecords.com)

For a small period of time I took No Slogan for granted, as weird as that may seem. They seemed to play every third show I went to, always played a solid set of mostly newer tunes, did their thing. After finally getting my hands on the full length, never again. Usually when people use the term "Chicago Punk" they limit their references to the big hitters like Raygun and Pegboy when they should be including No Slogan's arsenal of big riffs and woahs.

Canadian Rifle es un trio de Chicago, algo menos hardcore que No Slogan y un poco mas "melodico" en la linea de Jawbreaker, Leatherface y grupos asi. Que yo sepa tienen 3 EP's y un LP. Solo voy a postear su primer Ep porque el lp solo lo he encontrado a 128 kbps (si os interesa yo lo encontre aqui ) y no he encontrado ninguno de otros EP's.

I have to post this. There isn't any way around it. Canadian Rifle are my favorite punk band and this 7" (their first) is perfect. I first discovered this band because I read that it featured members of Hellbender and Challenger (which I took to mean Al Burian) and I grabbed it immediately. Later I would learn that the artwork and layout were done by Al Burian, but he wasn't actually in the band. It didn't matter though because even Al Burian couldn't make this band (and especially this release) any better. It has gone through a few different pressings on various colored vinyl/sleeves, and one day, out of pure love, I'll own them all. Right now I'm good with one, until it stops playing. A few distros still carry the represses of this I think. So pick it up. (http://cementingtheseams.blogspot.com/2010/02/canadian-rifle-health-7-2007.html)
