Bad Nerves are a 5-piece Powerpop-RocknRoll band from East London. The bastard child of a Ramones/Strokes one night stand, they play ferociously fast distorted pop songs, with melodies that hook so deep, even the most skilled lobotomist would struggle to scrape them out. As a follow up to their self-titled debut album (2020), they are now releasing a live album: Alive in London.
Bobby Nerves: “You just can’t beat the energy of a live record. My favourite Ramones record is probably It’s Alive. It’s pretty cool to have captured us at the arguable peak of this era of the band, on our first sold out headline tour.”
A sold out show which in fact was so sweaty, that during the show you can hear the venue getting hotter, quite literally building up to its boiling point. “The recording gear blew up… It was probably the hottest show we’ve ever played so I’m not surprised. You couldn’t breathe in there. It’s a shame we didn’t capture the last part of the set but equally it’s a pretty cool story so we ain’t too bothered,” Bobby says.
Recorded at the Sebright Arms on April 2nd 2022, engineered and mixed by Mike Curtis, mastered by Christian Wright at Abbey Road studios. Alive in London will be out on 10” transparent magenta vinyl on April 7, 2023 with the digital album being released two weeks later.
