Album Review

Nerves, The – “One Way Ticket” – [Alive Natural Sound Records]

lombard   3/16/2010   12-inch, A Library

This 2008 collection by The Nerves, “One Way Ticket,” collects some classic material by this short-lived L.A. (originally San Francisco) band. In existence from only 1975 to 1978, this power pop band was comprised of Jack Lee, Peter Case (later in the Plimsouls), and Paul Collins (later of the Beat). On this limited edition canary-yellow LP we get songs culled from unreleased albums, demos, their Nerves EP, and from live shows. Two tracks from 1979 are actually post-Nerves projects, including The Plimsouls and Jack Lee and band. It’s some amazing garage-rock-pop and it’s such a treat to hear the original Nerves version (made famous by Blondie) of “Hanging on the Telephone” from 1976.
