A largely forgotten yet accessible and melodic pop band of the CBGBs/Max's era downtown NYC scene, Nervus Rex was formed by Shaun Brighton and Lauren Agnelli in the late 1970s after meeting at CBGB. They played a slightly retro-styled form of power pop. On the strengths of their catchy songwriting, they were signed by Blondie's then-producer, Mike Chapman for a debut album. The album (1980) sold poorly, and the band broke up in the early 80's.

  • Similar artists: Laughing Dogs, The Shirts, The Miamis, The Marbles, The Fleshtones, and all the other great, melodic, competent bands from 70s NYC that got overlooked during the mad rush to market CBGBs.
  • Pretty good
