Formed in early 2009, Abominable No Men has strived to rock faces wherever they go. ANM was realized during a jam session in Andy Meadie's basement, began practicing in Thom's living room and then moved up into Thom's attic. After realizing Thom gets lazy with the guitar and just wants to play solos and sing they recruited Andy Larson to play guitar and fill the void in their hearts! Having just finished their self-titled debut album, they are focused on delivering great live performances and writing new material for their next album. Andy Meadie has emigrated to Texas, so the No Men have recently welcomed Blaine Sinderson to bang on the drums! BYEAAHHHHHH!!!!

"But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?"
