    Portland Oregon based Simple Tricks and Nonsense brings new sounds of Rock, Funk and Space with multi-part harmonies and deep lyrics to the local music scene. Starting their third year together, Dave on drums, Chris on Guitar, Melody on Keys and Andy on Bass, this band puts on a live show you have to see to believe. You'll be rockin' inside your soul! No Tomorrow Boys: Wild 'n' frantic rock 'n' roll bands are a dying breed in this era of shoegazey, reverb drenched indie pop, but looking like a motorcycle gang straight outta a Fifties drive-in flick and sounding like the rabid love child of Little Richard and The Cramps, The No Tomorrow Boys have spent the last few months trying to change that, performing relentlessly explosive sets across Portland and the greater Northwest with bands such as The Dex Romweber Duo, The Downtown Struts, and Davila 666. The trio's live shows are a tornado of chaos, simultaneously fun and fierce, invoking all the thrill and danger of life as a juvenile delinquent from back alley switchblade fights to lustful nights on lover's lane. And now the boys have wrestled their primitive style of ferocious American rock 'n' roll onto a slab o' wax with their debut single "(Do The) No Tomorrow Twist" b/w "Neanderthal For Your Love," two tunes that explode outta the grooves like a suped up hot rod off the starting line. So guys, grab your leather jackets and grease up your pompadours. Gals, slip on your fishnets and slap on that liquid eyeliner. No matter how you do it, get ready to flip your lid, blow your top, and dig that jive like it should be dug!
