Reissue, originally released in 1994. Formed in New York in 1985, The Optic Nerve were children of Nuggets who dreamed about the Velvet Underground but looked like the Byrds. Their take on '65-66 jangly garage-folk-rock was unrivaled. Lotta Nerve collects their fabulous early 45s plus studio tracks for what should have been their aborted first album. Out of print for many years, here's a new vinyl edition with new artwork and remastered sound. RIYL: Byrds, Love, Gene Clark, Leaves, Dylan, Emitt Rhodes. Includes insert with detailed liner notes and photos; also includes download card.
