Nervous Eaters

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Nervous Eaters - Nervous Eaters Nervous Eaters
Pop Used - LP 6E 282 Elektra
Rare 1980 White Label Promo Housed In A Die-Cut Jacket. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. "Nervous Eaters Is A Very Good Record On Its Own. That Producer Harry Maslin Did Not Know What To Do With The Band Is An Understatement. "By Yourself," The Second Track On Their 1980 Debut, Is Exquisite Pop/Rock By A Band That Wrote A Classic Underground Riff Rock Anthem, "Degenerate," Not On This Recording. The Fan Base In Boston That Launched "Dream On" For Aerosmith Never Had The Opportunity To Get Behind The Nervous Eaters' Elektra Debut. This Is An Amazing Example Of A Band Honing Its Craft In The Trenches Of A Regional Music Scene. Their Classic "Mellow" Tune, "Last Chance," Gets Sped Up By Maslin. It Is OK, But Nowhere Near The Majesty Of The Demo Tapes That Got The Band Attention In The First Place. "Loretta," "Get Stuffed," And "Girl Next Door" Are R-Rated And Lovingly Sexist. But The Eaters' People Knew And Loved Were A Gritty, Down And Dirty Boston Band. They Were The Rolling Stones Of Boston, And This Album Sounds Like The Group Trying To Be — The Eagles, Or, Dare It Be Said, The Hollies. The Hard Rocking, Riff-Blasting, Tongue-In-Cheek Rock Band Created A Long-Player With Tunes That Fall Somewhere Between The Ronettes And The Four Seasons. When You Expect A Band To Crunch With The Enthusiasm Of Mott The Hoople And Hear Pure Pop, It Is Culture Shock. The Verdict On The Album? Surprisingly, Like Farrenheit, Released On Warners In 1987, The Disc Works Despite Being A Slight Misrepresentation Of The Artist. It Is Still Steve Cataldo Writing And Singing "Walkout"; There Are 12 Songs From A Prolific Boston Artist." Joe Viglione, AMG.... more details
