Doctor Nerve - Armed Observation/Out To Bomb Fresh Kings
These are the first two albums, complete on one CD, that cemented Nerve's reputation as one of New York City's most fast 'n' furious bands. The first album is somewhat more in the vein of the early 80's punk/jazz scene (Massacre, Material) than later work, and with embryonic versions of the lineup, but it still smokes. Produced by Fred Frith, Armed Observation was their second, and the definitive Nerve sound is beginning to be cemented into place. Hot NYC downtown fusion.
"Unique in rock, Doctor Nerve is an exceedingly tight group that remains raw and vital."-All Music Guide
