No Through Road
No Through Road
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.
