I don't throw around the term "essential" much, but Boston's pre-punk degenerates, the Nervous Eaters are just that. Many of you know their song "Just Head" from KBD comps, or covered by the New Bomb Turks (in my opinion the Turks pretty much took that song and based their band's sound on it), but this CD includes their unreleased tracks and an interview as well as their two 45s.
The CD comes with a huge booklet (that I didn't scan) with interviews and photos so it's worth seeking out, but if you're not wanting to shell out the $40 this CD is going for now, download this 1973-1975 retrospective of Boston's greatest rock 'n' roll band! (and I'm not forgetting about DMZ).
