Punk icons NoMeansNo retiring

Canadian punk veterans NoMeansNo are making their lengthy hiatus permanent by announcing their retirement.
Drummer John Wright broke the news to fans in a post on Facebook.com, 10 years after the rockers released their last album, All Roads Lead to Ausfahrt, in 2006.
“Greetings everybody, John here from NMN and with a heavy heart I must announce the retirement of No Means No,” he began.
“A hiatus became a long hiatus and a lingering hiatus has become a permanent one. Thirty-five years and countless miles, a couple thousand shows and many more beers, a bunch of tunes and sweaty hoards (sic) of great fans, I can’t say thanks enough to everyone.”
Wright founded the band in the late 1970s with his brother, bassist Rob, and they made their debut in 1982 with the album Mama. NoMeansNo were inducted into the Western Canadian Music Hall of Fame last year (15).
