Biography

The Nuclears are a rock & roll band from Brooklyn, NY.

“I’m downstairs doing the pinball rock, and I can hear this total whiskey-drinking, shit-kicking rock and roll, so I head up top to check it out - holy fuck, it’s the Nuclears, this shit’s coming outta those long-haired kids I just met a minute ago. The dude’s singin’ about, “Baby, baby, baby, don’t do me like that.” Bad ass. And their guitar player, Eddie Van Halen protégé, God, the kid must practice like twenty-three hours a day.”

-Mike Watt (the Minutemen, the Stooges)

Somehow, in a musical climate dominated by formulaic product mass-marketed for disposable consumption and vaguely smug “indie” art that you’re probably not hip enough to get, the act of getting out there and playing rock ‘n’ roll is even more revolutionary now than it was when it ruled the airwaves. We weren’t really thinking of that when we started the band back in high school. It was partly about becoming slightly more appealing to girls, and partly about getting into bars underage, but ultimately it was just about doing what we love. When we moved up from D.C. to Brooklyn and finally solidified our line-up, though, seeing the response to our live show made us realize how many people out there are on the same wavelength as us. All the energy we throw out, they throw it right back. We play and they dance. It’s really exciting, and most importantly, it’s all happening right now.
