Leatherbag was a rock band from Austin, Texas formed in 2005 by songwriter Randy Reynolds after moving from Houston.[1][2] The band's name comes from a passage in the James Joyce novel, Finnegans Wake.

The Austin Chronicle's critic wrote, in reviewing the album Nowhere Left to Run, "There's no denying Leatherbag's talent".[3] In discussing the band's album Love and Harm, NPR critic David Brown described the sound as "a frenetic garage-rock charge reined in by melodies that early Wilco would be proud to call its own".[4]

In August 2010 the band edited their own Wikipedia page.[5]

The band performed at The 2009 Austin City Limits Music Festival. They were showcased on the web series, ACL presents Satellite Sets and were also an official performer at SXSW 2010. After much deliberation, Leatherbag changed names to 'No Future' following a short tour of the South in late March 2012.
