Oh wonderful Canaduh, how do you spoil our punk hearts with a never ending flow of good bands. Vancouver based supergroup NERVOUS TALK features Joel Butler from MOBY DICKS / MYELIN SHEATHS and members of TIMECOPS, SHITTY NEIGHBOURS and THE BALLANTYNES. These punks really are on a mission to deliver the most Punk sounding album you heard in a long time and their songs evoke the ghost of TEENAGE HEAD and POINTED STICKS.
But NERVOUS TALK has a much wider range of all the good Punk we love. The 10 songs on this album bring rocking and dry ‘77 Punk (‘Something wrong’, ‘Sasha’, ‘Close to Death’), hectic and snotty Punk Rock (‘No invitations’), super catchy Power-Pop Punk with killer guitar lines, handclaps and everything you wish for (‘Different person’, ‘Introductions’), as well as some glammy Punk Rock with a killer 70s guitar sound (‘Nothing to say’), as well as the faster and melodic ‘Already gone’ and ‘Flush my phone’ that remind of STEVE ADAMY BAND and MARKED MEN and the slower, LOVER!- like reverberating and echo-driven ‘Way to go’ at the end of the record.
If you have a craving for good ole Punk Rock in the vein of BUZZCOCKS, MANIKINS or POINTED STICKS, go and get your fix!
