...namely, that the original lineup of Dallas punk rock legends The Nervebreakers have reformed (just as had been suggested here by an anonymous commenter a few weeks back). But it's not just for a couple Austin gigs during SXSW and an April 11 gig at Club Dada.
No sir. See, there's more info to be had on this front...
The Nervebreakers--who scored a minor hit with "My Girlfriend is a Rock" and opened for The Ramones, The Sex Pistols and The Clash when each band made its first run through Dallas in the late '70s--aren't just doing these shows as one-off gigs. Nope. Seems the fellas have flat-out reuniited.
The band has an anthology collection on its history, plus a whole bunch of newly recorded material to shop around. Hence the Austin dates during SXSW. We'll let you know anything else we hear on this front as it comes in...
