Q & Not U
No Kill No Beep Beep
(Dischord, 2000)

Saw these guys shortly before they broke up. It was one of the most energetic, dancy, parties of a show I’ve ever attended. Just pure indie rock fervor. No Kill No Beep Beep, the band’s debut, embodies that same glorious high, something rarely captured on a record. I really miss these guys. Angular guitars, punk aesthetics, wild drumming and so so much energy. What a great record. As far as Dischord bands go, or at least Dischord albums, Q & Not U’s No Kill No Beep Beep may be my favourite. Kelly Clarkson, I applaud you for your choice of alligiance in Q & Not U buttonry.

I wish I could go back in time and watch you at this show- see if you danced.
