Hangining on the telephone

Most people do not know that The Nerves wrote this song and Blondie's cover made it big.

The Nerves were the founding group of the pop and punk scene in LA in the mid-70's. They only produced one self-titled EP, which is my personal favorite, before they split up. Peter Case (bassist) and Paul Collins (drummer) later joined The Plimsouls-- you can recognize"A Million Miles Away" in this scene of Valley Girl(video link).

In 2008 Alive Records release a compilation of The Nerves' self-titled album (remastered) along with unreleased demos and songs. You can download "One Way Ticket" here for free.
