After numerous releases on Drunken Sailor, Total Punk, Neck Chop, then teaming up with The Beta Blockers for his last full release, Erk is back, this time on his own.
Originally released on cassette in 2020, finally out now on vinyl.
He might be on his own but damn, you wouldn’t know it, right from the total punk of the opening track ‘Our Hungry Fruit’ there is no let up.
Erik still has the Classic Midwest punk Devo influence, but with a “new-new wave” sound that’s been coming out of California and Saint Louis.
Distorted, frantic, utterly aware of punk/hardcore/post-punk/whatever’s past and its limitations, but determined to find the lesser-explored gaps that lie between and make them his own.Erik still sprinkles his tunes with liberal doses of pop fairy dust.
Buckle up, Bugs is the sound of the summer you didn’t think you would get. Erik Nervous FOREVER.
