Biography

The Nervous Return was a New Wave/Post-punk band from Los Angeles. Noted for their electrifying and unpredictable live shows, the band toured Europe and North America headlining their own club tours as well as supporting arena tours with well known acts such as No Doubt and Blink 182. They were also known for the diverse and eclectic bands they shared the stage with including, but not limited to, Hella (band), Imperial Teen, Har Mar Superstar, Electric Six, xbxrx, 400 Blows (band), The 88, Trans Am (band), The Used, Enon, and Mount Sims. They released two EP’s and one full-length studio album. Their self-proclaimed best effort was their last full-length recording that remains unreleased. The band broke up in April of 2006.

The Nervous Return was formed in the spring of 2000 by Jason Muller (guitar/vocals), Anthony Crouse (bass/vocals) and Greg Gordon (drums). Jason and Anthony had been playing together in Skinchurch, a Gothic rock/Industrial metal band in the mid 1990’s. Skinchurch released one full-length record entitled Of Whores and Martyrs in 1995. The band featured Jason dressed as a gothic transvestite who frequently spit fake blood and simulated vulgar acts on-stage not unlike Marylin Manson. In the wake of Manson’s meteoric rise to stardom in the same year, Skinchurch fizzled out being perceived as all too similar to Manson’s spooky glam act. Jason and Anthony indulged their love of 70’s Funk and Glam rock as Skinchurch evolved into Izzy the Pusher, a glamourous space rock phenomenon in Hollywood, CA during 1996-1999.
