[AE26] No-fi "Vol. 0" reissue (2018)

No-fi "Vol. 0" reissue 41 x File #AE26 2018

"No-fi was a field recording / cut-up audio cassette project from Phoebus VA circa 1994. By 1996 no-fi became a proper band led by Gary Stevens along with siblings Danny & Elizabeth Stevens and neighborhood friend Jeff Liscombe.

They wanted to be a "punk rock" band but things quickly devolved into pure noise as they soon realized not one of them could play any instruments at all! Poor kids with broken keyboards, one-string guitars and any clamorous objects at hand they filled the block with a nightly racket of wild improvised "music" amplified through practice amps with torn speakers, recording everything on their little pink boombox.

Neighborhood kids began to join these sessions and No-fi became a rotating ensemble of anyone and anything goes. As time passed the group took on many forms, finally to settle on being a so-called "experimental" project that never really took itself too seriously.

No-fi birthed the Anti-Everything label, Rat-Ward DIY venue and numerous side projects, like A.S.D. Related projects include Autio-Ethik, Sounds From The Pocket label, Igon, Human Services, and many more.

This collection attempts to document some of these moments captured between 1996 and 1999. Unimportant nonsense to most but a very special part of a few people's lives, at least."

No-fi "Vol. 0" was originally released on CDr in 2001
Now here it is again, with 21 bonus tracks!
