No Use For A Name

Hardcore punks No Use for a Name formed in Sunnydale, CA in 1987, originally comprising singer/guitarist Tony Sly, guitarist Chris Dodge, bassist Steve Papoutsis and drummer Rory Koff. Making their recorded debut later that year with "Turn It Around" -- their contribution to a double seven-inch released by { Maximum Rock N Roll} magazine -- NUFAN next resurfaced in 1989 with the single "Let 'Em Out, " followed a year later by their full-length debut Incognito . After 1991's Don't Miss the Train , the group signed with Fat Wreck Chords for 1993's The Daily Grind; line-up changes regularly plagued No Use for a Name, and by the middle of the decade only Sly and Koff remained from the original roster. After 1994's Leche con Carne , the band kept a relatively low profile before resurfacing three years later with Making Friends , recorded with new guitarist Chris Shiflett and bassist Matt Riddle. Shortly after completing 1999's More Betterness! , Shiflett exited NUFAN to join the Foo Fighters; he was replaced by former Suicidal Tendencies guitarist Dave Nassie.
