New album: Nervous Jerk || Ugly Losers Club

Christchurch (NZ) musicians Tom Kerr, Brad Wright, and Johnny Fast clearly live by the motto of keep your expectations low. Calling your band Nervous Jerk and your record Ugly Losers Club? That is an Underdog release with a capital U! Sufficient reason to press play, I’d say.

The first song you’ll hear is the ninth track on the LP, the anthemic slacker rock of U R. I can see why Nervous Jerk picked this song, as it is one of the best songs on Ugly Losers Club. It is atypical for the band’s sound though. The remainder of the LP is mostly a raucous, fast and loud affair. Nervous Jerk doesn’t do subtle yet they definitely exceed expectations. Ugly Losers Club may not be for everyone, but I could see many misfits feel right at home. LP is out now through Dust Up! Records!
