No trend a dozen dead roses 1985 full album

A Dozen Dead Roses is the second studio album by American post-punk band No Trend, released in 1985 through their very own No Trend Records. The album features a dramatic musical and stylistic shift from previous releases, being more funk influenced when compared to their previous noisy records such as Too Many Humans. The album features Lydia Lunch performing vocals on numerous tracks. The track "For The Fun Of It All" originated from their previous release, Too Many Humans.

After the release of Too Many Humans, Frank Price, Bob Strasser, and Michael Salkins all left the group, leaving Jeff Mentges. Mentges would later recruit other musicians to help with the recording of A Dozen Dead Roses. This album features a dramatic change in sound, featuring influences of jazz and funk music. The sudden change in sound has been described as a prank on the fan base they've attained from the release of Too Many Humans. Just like their previous releases up to this point, A Dozen Dead Roses is completely out of print, and the possibility of a reissue is highly unlikely due to the destruction of the original master tapes.
