The Nervous Eaters, one of Boston’s first punk/new wave bands, debuted in early 1977 with Steve Cataldo on vocals and guitar, Robb Skeen on bass, and Jeff Wilkinson on drums. Along with DMZ and The Real Kids, they were considered among the scene’s “punkier” bands. In the description of Allmusic’s Joe Viglione, they were the “Rolling Stones of Boston…hard-rocking, riff-blasting, tongue-in-cheek” By 1978, they were one of the most popular acts in the city.
In ’76 they recoded their classic punk singles “Loretta” and “Just Head” for Rat Records. You could hear ’em on punk comps as Killed By Death or Feel Lucky Punk.
The band briefly reunited in 1986. to record ”Hot Steel And Acid”, cool punk mini Lp. ”Eaterville” compilation brings together rare stuff recorded between 1973 and 1975!- from studio sessions and demos along with their official Rat singles. Raw mix of Stones/Stooges rockin’ styles. Driving To New York, Dig!!!
