Collins, Case and Leeformed The Nerves in 1974 and produced a new, unique sound that would influence many bands to come. With that, they created the Power Pop genre, which continues to have a huge worldwide following. While The Nerves only officially released one EP, one of its tracks was the history-making “Hanging on the Telephone.” That track would later be covered by Blondie and become a mainstream chart hit.

After The Nerves broke up, Collins and Case stayed together to form The Breakaways before going their separate ways: Collins went on to lead The Beat, whose most remembered singles include “There She Goes” and “Rock and Roll Girl.” Case formed The Plimsouls, who scored hits with “A Million Miles Away” and “Eyes of a Stranger.” Both bands kept the true soul of their original Power Pop as their musical foundations.

Case also released a live Plimsouls album, Beach Town Confidential, earlier this week. The LP consists of footage from a 1983 concert at the Goldern Bear in Huntington Beach, California. The recording includes a limited-edition (200) pink vinyl set, available through Alive Records.
