The Nerves were a rock band from the mid-70s that only had one release, this EP- though this version has extra tracks. Their sound, however, heavily influenced the yet to be established American punk rock scene and they even toured with the Ramones. They're one of my favourite groups right now and I think a lot of people here will dig it. As Dan Boeckner has said, this is punk before punk existed.

Hopefully the web sheriff isn't working for Alive records...
