Album Review

With at least half the band coming from a hardcore background, None More Black mix things up on their second full-length, This Is Satire, producing a more diverse punk record with rock instincts than any random hardcore reference would suggest. Having had a pretty rocky time since forming in 2000 (i.e., lineup changes galore), the guys claim the attainment of a long-desired chemistry in their current lineup, and this feeling is evident in the album's overall contented feel. Sure, ex-Kid Dynamite frontman Jason Shevchuck continues to rant lyrical cynicism in his incessantly coarse snarl, but it's all delivered with a little more bounce in the band's collectively weary step. Aside from the almost suffocating nature of the grueling "I See London," the rest of Satire is very much full of rock-oriented — often Americana-tinged — anthems with upbeat, start-stop chords that dance over a steadily rolling rhythm section. Quivering guitars, handclaps, and a background support system of woah-ohs! and heys! are also continuously on hand to get even the hardest of hardcore kids shaking their hips. This is especially apparent on cuts like "My Wallpaper Looks Like Paint," "Zing-Pong," and "10 Ton Jiggawatts," the last of which delightfully reaches into '50s rock & roll to borrow a greaser's swagger. A notable progression from 2003's File Under Black, This Is Satire finds an aggressively confident None More Black starting to really hit their stride.

Customer Reviews

solid album

none more black is a good punk band with vocals that sound as though he drink battery acid and still manges to get every word out if i could suggest buying one song it would be we dance on the ruins of the stupid if you are a fan of leftover crack this band will definetly suit your needs

Their best!

This record got dogged a little by some people when it came out, but give it a chance and it shall reward. This is my absolute favorite NMB record. If you like this, also check out Benson Jones "The Last Pull Tab" (also on itunes) - as well as LaGrecia "On Parallels" (the latter of which has members of NMB).

There Is Nothing Like It

The kind of record that comes along every now and then and makes you say WOW! A wonderful little place to inhabit for a little while. None More Black dipped into all sorts of genres and made something distinctly their own, and it's so much fun,try dancing to it...

Years Active: '00s

Philadelphia emo heroes Kid Dynamite were coming off extensive touring and two popular albums when vocalist Jason Shevchuk decided to leave the band and concentrate more fully on film school. Even with Kid Dynamite done, however, he couldn't escape a natural passion for music and soon began writing and playing songs on guitar with his roommate Dan playing bass. And so were the humble beginnings of None More Black in the winter of 2000. To complete the band, Shevchuk's brother Jeff was added on guitar,...
