NERVE CITY: Self-titled EP + Self-titled LP: 7″ + 12″

Primal, woozy, thumpy, reverb-drenched stuff. Had The Jesus And Mary Chain been even more influenced by the Velvet Underground and laid off the feedback a bit when they started out, they probably would’ve sounded something like this. The seven-inch on Hozac goes one further by shoving the band into a cardboard box that they subsequently drop into the deep end of the pool and hit record.
