Die Nerven: Fun LP
Die Nerven (“The Nerves”) is a German-speaking post-punk/noise rock 3-piece with a penchant for gloom and nihilism. Founded as a noisy lo-fi duo in 2010 in Esslingen near Stuttgart - South Germany - these young guys released several singles, eps and download albums before their first physical full-length "Fluidum" was put out by This Charming Man Records. 2014 saw the release of the follow-up album Fun which is - according to Jan Wigger from Spiegel Online - „one of the best and most relevant German-speaking albums of this decade“. The album was featured in almost every best of 2014 list in Germany.
But abroad the band impressed audiences as well - big time. After playing festivals like Roskilde (DK) and Eurosonic in Groningen (NL), touring Israel and being the first German speaking band to release with US-label Amphetamine Reptile Records.
John Bramwell (I Am Kloot) praised Die Nerven as "the best thing I've seen since The Pixies opened for My Bloody Valentine on their first tour in Britain". You have the slightest interest in a band that kicks ass without making a big deal out of it? You care for music that transports an attitude without being nosey at all? You might be interested in a band that bears slight resemblances of Mission Of Burma, Wipers, Bauhaus, Swans, Abwärts, Sonic Youth, Fehlfarben, Helmet or Mudhoney? You never heard of any of the bands mentioned – but you got ears to listen, a mind to understand and a stomach to digest? Either way - you’ll love Die Nerven.
