The Nervous Eaters
RocknRolls best kept secret has to be the Nervous Eaters and with their new release through Penniman Records, everybody in on it.
Coming out of the pre-punk Boston rock & roll scene, Nervous Eaters were as tight and professional as any working band around, with links to Willie Boom Boom Alexander and legendary blues harp player Tony Cagnina and regular gigs at The Rat. They roared through the punk era, opening for national and international acts, then toured on their own, and just kept going.
Some of this Boston bands amazing songs, released as singles in the mid-70's, have already seen the light of day on various punk comps, most notably Loretta and Just Head have been elevated to the status of nuggets and are counted as fave tracks amongst legions of fans of this genre. However, these songs are only the tip of the iceberg of an output full of talent and limitless rage.
Now, nearly 4 decades, one of the best ever R'n'R bands are back with hi-voltage Rock n' Roll, the crucial dividing line between the best Stones and the Stooges. The Nervous Eaters are progenitors of Punk.
