Edinburgh, United Kingdom (1978 – present)

Twisted Nerve from Edinburgh, Scotland are one of the most underrated but one of the best bands there were.
Started in 1978 as The Insults, the band played full on back then. First recordings of Twisted Nerve can be heard on the ‘Mint Sauces For The Masses’ comp. 7” on local label Playlist. The band released another two 7”s, ‘Caught In Session’ and ‘Five Minutes Of Fame’, on which you can hear their transition from punk to a darker sound.

After some line-up changes, the band released the ‘Eyes You Can Drown In’ 12” on Criminal Damage, followed by the ‘Séance’ mini album, a record they released themselves. Both these records are very hard to find now.

    I agree that they're one of the best goth punk bands were and they're indeed underrated but they aren't one of the most underrated first of all marquee moon , a band from germany is the most underrated goth punk band and 2 in the uk alone were a lot of bands that were more unknown than twisted nerve example tea house camp, rebel christening, the 57th parallel, arch criminals, look back in anger, sign language etc... but excellent stuff and still one of mine favorite (goth punk) bands
