Q and Not U: No Kill No Beep Beep

No Kill No Beep Beep

No Kill No Beep BeepI was talking to somebody about this band, and I think he said that listening to Q & Not U made him literally want to blow his head off. I totally get it, although I wholeheartedly disagree. Like many other Dischord bands, they take the label name to heart and create dischord within their music. It’s all start and stop and weird angles, time signature changes, shrieking guitar plucking and octopus drumming. Listen to “End the Washington Monument Blinks” and tell me these guys aren’t a good pop band. It does sound like the guitar player is using a drill bit as a guitar pick at points, but it just adds to the wacky hand claps and call and response thing that has honestly spawned a generation of wacky bands from as diverse a background as Brooklyn and Canada. This is the original, boys. Get on board.
