Biography

There is more than one band called “The Nails”. None of which are to be confused with artists named Nails, which now redirects to its own page as opposed to this one.

1 . The Nails, a new wave band from Colorado, United States which formed in 1977, best known for the novelty hit “88 Lines About 44 Women”
2. The Nails, a dark metal band from Azerbaijan which formed in 2007

1. The Nails were a New Wave rock group formed in Boulder, Colorado, United States in 1977 and consisted of Mark Campbell (vocals), Steve O’Rourke (guitarist), Douglas Guthrie (saxophone), George Kaufman (bass), Dave Kaufman (keyboards) and Mike Ratti (drums, later replaced by Dennis McDermott). They are best known for their alternative radio novelty hit “88 Lines About 44 Women”.

The Nails were a six piece New Wave band that formed in Boulder, Colorado, during the mid 1970s. In Colorado, they were originally named The Ravers, and their roadie, Eric Boucher, later became known as Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys.

The Nails moved to New York and by the late 1970s had established themselves on the club circuit. Hotel for Women, an EP recorded in 1981, contained an early version of “88 Lines About 44 Women”, a song that caught the attention of RCA. The Nails were signed to RCA By Bruce Harris, also known for bringing The Clash to America. In 1984 “88 Lines About 44 Women” was re-recorded for RCA and included on The Nails’ full-length debut LP, Mood Swing.
