This is for all the punks who were there back then – and for all those still making it happen.

Occasionally, this site will post current news stories - although no promises about their timeliness - but it's main purpose is as an archive of "No Cause for Concern?" fanzine, pubished in 1982-1984 (see "THE ZINE" link on the left).

Thanks for visiting.

Current News:

Guess who's been too lazy to post any updates in FOREVER? That's right: me. I guess I'm goign to have to just accept that I will never get on top of this. So, enjoy the archive!


Upcoming Shows:

The aim here was to post anything coming up relating to the 1982–1985 timespan of this 'zine. But given how good I am about posting updates, don't hold your breath... However, if you know of any shows by bands from this era taking place in Ottawa (or nearby) please let me know and I'll try to post it in time.


N.C.F.C. Interviews:

Installment #3: Jo Capitalicide of Germ Attak.

Installment #2 of the new N.C.F.C. interviews: Dave "Tufty" Clough + Vess Ruhtenberg of Zero Boys were interviewed October 10, 2010, in Chicago before their set at Riot Fest.

Installment #1 of the new N.C.F.C. interviews: John Stabb of Government Issue (1980–1989).

John Stabb was interviewed by N.C.F.C. in December 1983 [read it here] and it seemed appropriate to talk to him again nearly 27 years later on the eve of his band's reunion taking place December 11, 2010, in D.C.

Old news: N.C.F.C.'s MySpace page and Facebook Group.


If you hear of any Ottawa (or nearby) shows involving bands or musicians that relate to the early '80s punk scene, send the info and it'll get posted.

And there's always interest in old bands reforming, and rumours are everywhere. Give us the details.
