Coming from the same ’90s garage explosion that gave the world Teengenerate and the Mummies, the No-Talents were a Parisian-based four-piece known for their raw ’n’ fast mix of garage rock, punk and “Killed By Death” slop. Their self-titled LP is fun, crass and packed with energetic songs marked by snotty female vocals.
Originally released on Broken Rekids in 1996, this opening blast provided the blueprint they followed for the next four years. The band took their nasty, broken-glass power-chord blitzkrieg to France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, England, Spain and the USA before breaking up in 1999. Founding members Iwan L., Cécilia M., Laurent B. and Lili Z. have all had many bands and projects since then, but now they are reforming to play one show in Spain at the Funtastic Dracula festival on October 31th, 2014.
