Midnight generator beach show in Iowa City with more to come over the summer I’m guessing. Slut River, Nerv, Los Voltage, and Solid Attitude all played short sets.
Brash guitar slashing, sneery vox, liiiiiinger on vooooowels,
the singer’s father was a crow and his mother was a bad
phone connection… Songs come in two speeds “fast” and
“that’s not fast enough”. At 45 RPM, these 11 tracks fly by
like yer wasted youth. I was cool with “(Cool) with Me”
when it was called “What Does PCP Feel Like?”, it really
shines here. “Volume” has a skippy little guitar line.Comes to us courtesy of Rotted Tooth, so you know it’sgot that raw rock flavor that leaves your gums bleeding.Lead singer Mickey Shaw’s voice makes you curious tosee him on stage. Honestly, I dug this release enoughto brave the sonic sewers of myspace to check out thisbands’ alter ego as a synth punk blitz on the fritz, andwe may need to get some Viking Fuck rolling here at KFJCsoon. Solid splatteritude from Iowa.-Thurston Hunger

Pretty good review from a community college radio station in Los Altos Hill, California.
The Iowa City scene comp is done! Check it out.
Share this around if you’re on the comp or know the bands or are from Iowa City or have ever been to Iowa City or played a show in Iowa City.
A track from the session where we recorded every Nerv song that will be on the 7” and the Wild Child split 7”. Everything is just a little tweek away from being ready to master.
Positive review of the NERV demo. Mixing the 7” tonight!
NERV, Sound Only 02 demo write-up in Maximum Rock N’ Roll, number 351, August 2012. (shameless self-promotion)
I took some photos at a show the other night, which I don’t always do, and I was pretty happy with what came out.
Promotional photo for my friends’ band Big Box. That’s me with the cat shirt pretending to be the band’s drummer because their drummer Joe thought taking band photos was stupid.
