Nervous Talk- S/T LP. Canada has a long history when it comes to poppy punk rock... from Teenage Head and the Pointed Sticks to Bum and Chixdiggit! to Steve Adamyk Band and Needles//Pins; the country has a long lineage of bands that kneel at the altar of the Ramones. And now we can add another winner to that list: Vancouver’s Nervous Talk. It blows my mind that this is the band’s debut full-length as the song writing is so catchy and mature. The 10 songs on this album bring rocking and bouncy ‘77 Punk to the forefront with snide and snotty vox fired with some razor sharp guitar work. It doesn’t sound like it’s deliberately retro, but it does remind me of why '77 punk is pretty much my favorite era/genre of music ever. These songs are just so fucking good! Highly recommended for fans of the aforementioned bands along with the Buzzcocks and The Boys.
