No were an Australian band, active during the late 1980s. They blended electronic music with nihilistic punk rock, in a similar fashion to New York's Suicide. The band included Ollie Olsen, Marie Hoy, Michael Sheridan, and others.[1][2] They released a self-titled 12" EP (1988) and two LPs; Glory For The Shit For Brains (1987), and Once We Were Scum, Now We Are God (1989).
