“The Nervebreakers began life as a cover band doing avant' garde songs from the sixties. The Nervebreakers first big break came when they opened for the Ramones in 77 & for the Sex Pistols at The Longhorn Ballroom in 78, and a photo of Barry made it into the March 79 issue of Rolling Stone Magazine.”
