History

No Connection were formed in May 1997 in Reading, Berkshire by Graham Young (lead vocals, guitar), Simon Whenlock (bass, backing vocals), and Jon Hill (drums, backing vocals). The group claims as their inspirations the likes of Aerosmith, AC/DC, Deep Purple, George Michael, Public Enemy, Queen, The Cult, Van Halen, and U2.[1][2]

No Connection released their first album, titled Never Say It's Over, in 1999.[2] The album included six songs, including "Victory Girl",[2] which was featured in the teaser of an episode of First Wave titled "Ohio Players".[1] They followed in January 2000 with the release of Justified, a ten-track album that added four previously unreleased songs to the six from Never Say It's Over.[2] Two of the songs—"Ain't Foolin'" (initially released on Never Say It's Over) and "Love for Free"—reached #1 on MP3.com's Classic Rock chart.[1]

The band released Deal With It, co-produced with John Mitchell,[3] in 2001 through their indie record label No Connection Music.[4] In October 2002, the group toured the United States, performing in Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York (including at the CBGB club).[1] They also subsequently performed in the Czech Republic and Poland in 2005, and in Lithuania in 2006.[1]

In 2004, No Connection released Love To Hate To Love, followed in 2005 by Feed The Machine and in 2008 by Red Light Fever.[5]

No Connection's music has been featured in two games of the FlatOut video game series: three songs—"Burnin'", "Living American", and "Love to Hate to Love"—were included in the original game (see FlatOut (video game))[6][7] and two songs—"The Last Revolution" and "Feed the Machine"—were present in FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage.[8][9]
