This was a show in Ottawa. One Step Beyond was the club which took it's name from the Madness song. I think Jeff Cohen used to do the booking at that club. the campus community radio station co-sponsored the show.

Nomind "Tales of Ordinary Madness" LP

This was Nomind's only official vinyl release. It was made up of a collection of recordings done at Reaction Studios between August 1986 and May 1987. Originally it was to be released on Fringe Records, but the label didn't like the artwork, which seems insane to me. Anyhow Lone Wolf Records to the rescue. Thanks Jill. The songs on here are:
1. Slick (Makes Me Sick)
2. No Mind (To Lose)
3. Checking the Obituaries
4. Well Adjusted
5. Brainrack
6. Strontium Dog
7. Someone Else's life
8. Talking with Mr. D
9. Worlds Apart
10. Move Over
