    The band split in 1986 but after a long, long break at the end of 2008 NO MORE (condensed in the duo Tina Sanudakura and Andy Schwarz) got back on stage. With the album "MIDNIGHT PEOPLE & LO-LIFE STARS" the first "real" studio album since 1986 was released in 2010. When the band started in 1979 they were influenced by New Wave and No Wave (or as it is called today: Post-Punk) bands like Wire, PIL, Joy Division, Cabaret Voltaire, Lydia Lunch, Stranglers, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus and Ultravox with John Foxx (just name to a few). But they also were (and still are) influenced by (even) older artists like Velvet Underground, Roxy Music, David Bowie, Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, La Düsseldorf and Neu! The four-piece band played an eclectical punkish no wave style at the beginning then turned into a trio exploring a minimal, electronic cold wave style that and some songs became a kind of blueprint for genres like industrial, ebm and even techno. The belgian band Suicide Commando even named themselves after the NO MORE song. When asked where one would have to place NO MORE's kind of music today, to which genre it belonged, the band answers: "If we'd have to name that proverbial slot, we'd say that it is definitely Post-Punk-Electronica-Kraut-Glam. We take songs from all NO MORE phases as well as new songs, give the lot a turn in the time-shredder and - out comes great rhythmic noise: that is pop." In 2012 NO MORE released the follow up album "SISYPHUS" where they return to the incantation, the mantra, the loop. "Sisyphus is the man - we all have to -- start again -- and again... ("Sisyphus") 2015 the duo presents their third album „Silence & Revolt“. The band was originally founded at a time that in music stood for change and innovation. Punk and New Wave swept away the 70s, and NO MORE was part of it from the very beginning. Today’s music scene, however, has long forfeited any claim to a signature style. Andy Schwarz and Tina Sanudakura ask themselves:”What do we miss most?” The answer is: Pop! For Tina Sanudakura and Andy Schwarz this realization was one of the departure points for the new album “Silence & Revolt”. So it is hardly surprising that these two musicians apply different standards to the concept of Pop than the mainstream lemmings. In contrast to “Sisyphus”, which is based on repetitive loops, NO MORE now also use traditional song structures. “Silence & Revolt” presents a sound liberated from the constraints of time.
