Abominable No Men / Press

“Dapper & company has the goods, with a little live seasoning and age, the ‘No Men’ (as I think they should be renamed for booking & self-marketing ease: despite the sly slap on Bush-ism, whether they meant it or not) is another fine, talented, young band with tons of promise to keep an eye on from the Northern IL & Southern, WI region. I’ll await their first studio record with great interest. Catch them if you can, seems like they, or Dapper, will be around awhile to reckon with- and they’re only going to get better. Scary.”

“The band is young, talented, fantastic, rough on the edges (as these ears prefer), with a great frontman/lead guitarist, Thomas Dapper. The rhythm section served to inspire and support Dapper. Releasing a touch sluggishly when expected, but building perfect moods and serving as Dapper’s foil to excrete smooth, Slash/Homme-like solos. The band impressed, chugging alongside Dapper, often falling behind like a single dopplegänger, intentionally, and then following his new leads. Not knowing any songs they were performing, I’ll assume they were originals. Amazing original songs, some were more instrumental than anything; reminding me of Mogwai, Queens of the Stone Age and a marching band coming through to take new listeners. I had to ask the bar owner who they were, he, like me, impressed. ”
