Northern Rock from Vancouver BC
Understanding exactly how No Horses came about would require more words than anybody would care to read on our Myspace page. The truth is we are a band that got together the way a band should, through friendship and a common desire to create good music. For the most part we get together over a few drinks and rock out. There is no “band leader” and no scientific “pop” or “indie” formula, just 6 people together making music that we like to play. A look into our musical backgrounds would reveal many styles ranging from punk and metal to country music and indie rock. Although any of these styles might be apparent influences, our music deserves the simplest of descriptions: Rock and Roll. On stage we try hard do our RNR duty and get people to have a good time... dance and shout. If you come out to see an art show or fashion show you might be disappointed unless you don’t mind seeing a rock concert instead.
Recently we spent 7 days and 7 nights at a small Vancouver venue called the Black Door that closed its doors for us to record. We recorded live to a Radar recording system with Shawn Cole at the helm. With rain, traffic noise and an auto body shop below we managed to track 14 songs and only have one siren show it’s face on the final product. We were lucky it happened in a spot that we couldn’t have planned better. 10 or 11 of the songs are going to be mastered together as an album, ready for release. Thanks again to Ben and Brian for putting up with us and for keeping the “honors” bar stocked.
Over the winter we are working on finishing our debut album and getting ready to tour Canada and parts of the US in 2008.
