The NMC should enhance the musical landscape in Calgary by becoming a focal point for activity, and create a bridge to the music industry across the country.

David Psutka

The problem with this particular group of guys isn't that they invoked the Vietnam War at all, it's that they did it for a really shitty reason.

Kira Grunenberg

"No Pop" is about changing this self-imposed, self-perpetuating wheel of regulation and can do so without condescension toward the pursuit of monetary success. All that would need to, and should, change, is the perception of what makes music "commercial."
