NoMeansNo: Going Nowhere, looks at a band whose career has spanned three decades, 14 albums and produced an alter ego that’s become as much a part of the Canadian consciousness as SCTV. Through interviews with band members, bit players and fans, the book will explore how one punk band from Victoria, B.C. influenced musicians across the world and continue to be force in punk rock.

Mark Black is currently the manager of the library and archives at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. He holds a Bachelor of Arts with an advanced major in English as well as a Master of Library and Information Science from Dalhousie University. His work has appeared in The Coast, Dalhousie Gazette, Habs Eyes on the Prize, and Skyscraper .His best job to date was working for CBC's Street Cents . No one is invested enough to read this far, but his second best job might have been working at Rita MacNeil's tea room in Big Pond, Cape Breton.

"NoMeansNo: Going Nowhere skilfully lays out the band’s origins… thanks to [Mark Black’s] clear-eyed analysis and enthusiasm, others will no doubt find themselves listening to their music with a new appreciation."Cult MTL

"This book jumps around between solemn reflection, interviews with the band, personal interpretation and the annals of punk... with a self-depreciating sense of humor that helps insert breathers in an otherwise tightly packed chronology."VICE Magazine

"An interesting and refreshing read."Ale Knight Gazette
