No Through Road


No Through Road is the kind of band that could play a birthday party, a wedding or a wake. Even when the words are sad and the guitars bawl and holler from grubby amplifiers, No Through Road finds a way to package those emotions and turn them into sonic treasures. Led by charismatic crooner and slacker king Matt Banham, the group is at once gloriously loose and noisy, yet warm and sincere, their songs taking no time to stick in your brain and consequently be hummed and whistled for days on end.

No Through Road is the kind of band that could play a birthday party, a wedding or a wake. Even when the words are sad and the guitars bawl and holler from grubby amplifiers, No Through Road finds a way to package those emotions and turn them into sonic treasures. Led by charismatic crooner and slacker king Matt Banham, the group is at once gloriously loose and noisy, yet warm and sincere, their songs taking no time to stick in your brain and consequently be hummed and whistled for days on end. Check your high gloss hipster crap at the door, loosen some buttons, crack a beer (or twenty) and get down with the best party band to come out of Adelaide since the year punk broke. Pavement sang about haircuts; No Through Road don’t care if you’re fluffy, furry, bald, cowlicked or moustachioed.

All they ask is that you uncross your arms, come down the front, and together with them, proceed to dance the night away. Over the years the band has been praised by everyone from Triple J to local radio and street presses all over the country, and has played with the likes of Okkervil River, The New Pornographers , Ben Kweller, The Microphones, M Ward, The Tallest Man on Earth, New Buffalo, Love of Diagrams, Wolf n Cub, British India as well as indie rock saints Calvin Johnson and Lou Barlow. The band even played the giant Adelaide Entertainment Centre along with Jet, Eskimo Joe, and Little Birdy in 2007. Were they the least bit daunted? You’ve got to be joking! They have also played 2 Big Day Out festivals and a wondrous gig at St Jerome’s Laneway festival. ‘Winner.’ (yep, the full stop is intentional) is the band’s latest album and it consolidates No Through Road as not only a kick-arse live band but a very talented recording act. Just listen to the summertime hit Girls Are The Devil, the moon-soaked highway thrash of Tornados (Oh Rachel) and the regal slow burner (This Isn’t) Rock ’n Roll, with its ripping guitar leads and extended feedback outro, and you’ll wonder why this band is not yet world famous. Sure, calling a record ‘Winner.’ is cheeky but I’ll be damned, No Through Road has the smarts and most importantly, the songs, to pull it off.
