Album Review

Fat Wreck Chords is reissuing early albums by their most popular bands, a potent reminder of where they've been and how far they've come. Incognito was No Use for a Name's debut full-length, a solid slab of hulking hardcore with mighty fists full of metal. At this point, the group was a trio comprised of Tony Sly, Rory Koff, and bassist Steve Papoutsis. Melodies were at a premium, the rhythms were pusillanimous, the attitude angry, and the atmosphere threatening. On the almost Neurosis-like "It Won't Happen Again," they're absolutely menacing, a far cry from their more contemporary sound. Producers Brett Gurewitz and Donnell Cameron give the whole album a shine, smoothing down the more jagged edges and gracing the album with a more coherent feel than the group really had in those early days. No Use for a Name had a way to go, and at this point they were more in the thrall of metal than punk. That would change.

Customer Reviews


This a true classic. this album takes me back, way back. I can almost taste the Pony Express Pizza. NUFAN were on their way to greatness.
After hearing the news about Tony. We lost one of the great songwriters of our generation. Tony Sly was "the Man" in the South Bay hardcore scene and will be truly missed.
