No Men – ‘CUT’

Do you need some Loud music from Chicago? Look now further than No Men. The songwriting pair of D.B. (bass) and Pursley (vocals, drums) relocated from Texas in late 2015, joining forces with local drummer Eric Hofmeister to form No Men. No Men can be described as queer, femme-fronted, the androgynous opposite of “yes men”, and anti-everything. Equal parts 69, 420, and 666. One bass, duelling vocals, dual drums. No “guitar rock” allowed.

If you’ve been to see No Men live you know the energy they bring, and the audience that follows them that seems to just radiate that energy back to the band. It’s quite possibly one of the best live music experiences you can have in the city. Their new release ‘CUT’ was recorded on one Wednesday afternoon at the Minbal studio on Sacramento Blvd. with engineer Doug Malone. It’s out on Let’s Pretend Records on October 27.
