The exciting quartet the rest of the worId calls NOMEANSNO was formed in 1981 in Victoria, British Columbia. The original group remains intact to this day, consisting of brothers Bob and John Wright, Tom Holliston and Ken. NOMEANSNO's first album "Mama" was produced by Bill Crappelle, who has since gone on to work with many of the finest acts in the music business (Laibach, Jello Biafra, Night Ranger, etc.).

In 1995-96 the group performed in its entirety, the new mega-selling album "The Worldhood of the Worlds As Such" at stadiums and concert halls all over the globe. This massive world tour took NOMEANSNO fpom Vancouver to Helsinki to Bhutan and most points in between. In fact the release of their new EP, Would We Be Alive, NOMEANSNO will he appearing in almost every major city over the next ten months, with the exception of Hannover, Germany. According to a personal, friend, NOMEANSNO "didn't have a good time there in '94 - the P.A. crew was unacceptable."
