REVIEWS: 

"This band looks so gooddam cool you have to wonder if they're
gonna be a case of style over content. No way. If you want a few
loose comparisons, how do the Wildhearts, Social Distortion,
Peaves and Backyard Babies grab you? Yeah, they're that good.
They hit the stage with an air of confidence that immediately
wins over the crowd, and then proceed to attack their set of
superb songs likes it's all they know to do, and that's the best
possible compliment a band can get. Go see 'em you'll love it,
this is full-on rock'n'roll."

"Could time be right for a return to - gasp! - no nonsense
rock'n'roll? London-based Finns NO DIRECTION certainly must be
hoping so, a fact borne out of their first song being called
"Full on Rock'n'Roll" - mission statement as a song title - a
snarling two minute thrash that exhumes the corpse of the
Wildhearts and injects it with the rabid ferocity of Iggy's
Stooges."

"Dirty Finnish punk'n'rollers invade Camden. NO DIRECTION play 
Social Distortion style punk'n'roll with vocalist Pete sharing
that Mike Ness snarl. And he looks as hard as nails, like a 
cross between Ness and Ricky Warwick. As for songs, gems like 
"My Girl" and "World Gone Crazy" see those Finns peddling a 
streetwise, trad-punk sound (The Clash, The Ramones) and adding 
a twist of The Wildhearts and the Backyard Babies. Recent 
singles "Skip Tomorrow" blast into your eardrums. Final song 
"Right Today" features Pete strolling around the crowd with his 
guitar. By the end, Pete is bleeding for his efforts and 
Camden have a new band's name in their minds."
