Drums? Tick. Bass? Tick. Reverby vocals? Tick. Yes yes, looks like we've got ourselves a classic case of the no-waves. Nots are now a three piece, having shed a synth player since their last record. This makes 3 an incredibly cold record, one that is anchored by its rhythms and liberated by its lyricism. On Upset The Rhythm. 

Anxious Trend / In Glass

Having taken in the sedate pastures of Heavenly and Goner, Memphis garage-punks Nots wind up on Famous Class (Future Islands, Ty Segall) with a new 7” single. Both ‘In Glass’ and ‘Anxious Trend’ are fast, paranoid rockers that are given extra grit by the fact that they sound like they were recorded down the phone.


Nots are an all-girl four-piece from Memphis. They bring their savage blast of DIY post-punk to the UK via Heavenly Recordings. Reactor is the first single to be taken from their album We Are Nots. Reactor is backed with a previously unreleased demo version of the album track Televangelist. The single was produced by Doug Easley who has also worked with Sonic Youth, The White Stripes and Guided By Voices.

Virgin Mary

Following on from the debut LP We Are Nots, Virgin Mary by Nots is a lo-fi hypnotic assault on the senses that leads you in synthetic circles of despair. Fans of mid-period Liars records should have a look at this. Recorded on Natalie Hoffman’s four track recorder and in Burgundy Studios by Keith Cooper. Out on vinyl 7” from Goner Records.

Live at Third Man Records

Jack White continues to offer both gigs and releases to up and coming bands via his Third Man Records label and shop: good on him. Nots are the latest band to get White-aided opportunities, with this 7” document of their live set. They sound like a fierce and essential live act on this evidence, with a serious bite to their post-punk via no-wave sound.

Nots are almost a straight-forward noisy indie-punk band: indeed, they play that role with tremendous success. But they also have prominent daubs of synthesiser all over their sound, sometimes supporting the tune, sometimes adding fizzing texture-blasts. Plus a little riot grrrrl bite: all very good. Cosmetic is out on Heavenly.

We Are Nots

Nots are Natalie Hoffmann (guitar) Charlotte Watson (drums), Madison Farmer (bass) and Alexandra Eastburn (synthesiser). This grrl band are reminiscent of L7 and Bikini Kill, full throttle, loud and punk, with Eastburns synths bringing something a little different to the table. The Memphis girls are angry, aggressive and ready to shout at you about it.
