The Nerves EP


On this date in 1976, The Nerves released their self-titled debut EP. It contained "Hanging On The Telephone", "When You Find Out", "Give Me Some Time" and "Working Too Hard". This was the Los Angeles power pop band's only release while they were together (there were releases of older material distributed afterwards). "Hanging On The Telephone" would be a #5 U.K. hit for Blondie when they re-recorded it. The band included Peter Case, later of The Plimsouls, and Paul Collins, later of The Beat (The Paul Collins Beat).
