According to their record label, Thrill Jockey Records, on which they released their first album, Nerves, in 1998, “they have been burning it up ever since. The music is pure Rock and Roll. They play short, frenetic sets that leave both band and audience gasping for air.” Chicago’s Nerves released New Animal in 1998 and World of Gold in 2001.




1). THE NERVES (California Mods): In the earlier of the three bands all three members (Jack Lee, Peter Case, and Paul Collins) composed songs and sang.

The EP was distributed by independent Bomp! Records. According to his website, Paul Collins is presently re-releasing The Nerves on vinyl and compact disc through Alive Records/Bomp Records in 2006.
