No Tomorrow was born at the beginning of 1993 in order to release Shock Treatment's first LP and, later, put out other records in the same punk rock - power pop style. In those days, punk was not trendy and the words "power pop" were not used to define nearly any genre as they are now. From the beginning, this is a one-person label, which might be the reason for our slow growing rate. We have not left the idea we were born with, and we'll be sticking to it when the trend dies. The rewards are very clear: more and more people know that the No Tomorrow label on a record means fun-intensity-attitude-call it as you please.
During our first year, we only released three works: the mentioned Shock Treatment's, an introductory EP with four bands and a 7" by a pack of beardless punkrockers from Castellón, Depressing Claim. In '94 we put out singles by our pals Nuevo Catecismo Católico, an EP by Shock Treatment, an exclusive 7" by the magnificent british surf combo Surfin Lungs, the first EP by Los Vivos, the most surprising meeting between Los Brujos and Shock Treatment and the introduction of the Iberian Peninsule wildest, meanest band: Señor No.
In 1995 we had the pleasure to tell the world what Shock Treatment were able of, with their fab second LP "Punk Party", which harvested rave reviews everywhere (mostly abroad); and we insisted on our support for a lot of excellent native punk rock bands that the rest of the labels keep on ignoring: there was the debut on LP of both Depressing Claim (that year's most awaited record for top radio DJ Juan de Pablos, getting superb reviews) and Los Vivos, and we released singles by La Familia Manson, Los Guarriors, The Feedbacks (who published two other records in less than a year in Spain and Germany), Why Not? and Discípulos De Dionisos. We also insisted in our "Powerpop Series" with a single by The Crépitos.
Being such a great number of fantastic bands in Spain, we didn't feel the need to release records from foreign bands, but, just not to be called xenophobic, we saw the end of '95 with the release of two more singles by bands from abroad: the wonderful Beatnik Termites from USA and a split single by Shock Treatment and the japanese Ramones, Fifi & The Mach III.
We started 96 late but strong, releasing for starters a CD sampler with no less than 27 songs from our best bands, including lots of unreleased tunes by Shock Treatment, Surfin Lungs, Depressing Claim, Los Vivos, Guarriors, Discípulos De Dionisos, Why Not?... This CD is available for sale, but was planned as a promo; for instance, the punk german magazine Plastic Bomb released 6,000 copies of it as a cover disc in one of its numbers.
In addition to this CD, we put out two new albums. Firstly, Discipulos De Dionisos full-length debut and one of the last years' most commented records: hyperaccelerated fun, porno-punk to the max, all with a cover which was an scandal by itself. And then, our dream-come-true, the fourth and fabulous LP by our beloved Surfin Lungs, a world exclusive for No Tomorrow: first-quality surf music the way no one else plays today (in spite of the revival). We did not forget our favourite format, releasing new 7" from our label's own Señor No and Los Guarriors and some new arrivals such as the unbelievable Meows from Barcelona.
Later that year, we saw the release of new albums by Shock Treatment, Spain's punk pioneers who got their best record to date, with a brightest, freshest production; Señor No, one of the country's best live bands, with a second LP that shows all their might and beats off their first album's poor production; and Nuevo Catecismo Católico, Spain's best no-concessions punk rock band, that released their third LP with us after the vanishing of their former label, Goo Records.
...And moreover, a double 7" with four punk pop bands, two from Spain (Shock Treatment, Depressing Claim) and two from Italy (Deh Pills, Chromosomes), which was also released in Italy; a split single by Shock Treatment and Nuevo Catecismo Católico, covering some of their favourite songs; and another split, in a poppier vein, by The Cheeks from Germany and the Feedbacks.
We began 1997 with three aces we kept up our sleeve: Los Guarriors' first album, a lean time bomb produced by Jeff Dahl; Why Not?'s debut LP, first-class melodic punk rock fronted by Jorge Reboredo, Shock Treatment's producer, formerly from NCC; and the first LP/CD by The Feedbacks, teen power pop with charming melodies. And to raise our hand, a lot of singles: the german Sonic Dolls, The Invaders, Los Guarriors with Jeff Dahl...
So what's next? We are currently preparing new 7" by the japanese Phantom Rats and the wonderful Creamers, one of the best female-singer punk rock bands from the end of the '80s, who are saying goodbye with a single for No Tomorrow: we hardly can believe it. There's some things left, but we think that you know enough already... Stay tuned to our station, and remember that No Tomorrow stands for speed and fun.
