the Nervous return’s music and live shows are threatening and electrifying, making you laugh, turning you on and pissing you off, sometimes all within one song.
This music is the sound of defiled Hollywood hallucinations, channeling the feral aggression of Iggy’s Detroit, the romantic melancholy of post-punk London, and Bowie’s darkest glam fantasies.
the Nervous return “synthesize glam, pop, synth, punk, and post-punk influences to create a full length LP built on sharp technicolor riffs and quirky lyrics of amusing despondence” (Andrew Pogany - FLAUNT Magazine) creating "one delirious musical Cuisinart.” Said Liam Gowing in the LA Weekly “There’s not a bad song on the record, and the group’s passionate live performances tie up the split enz in a pretty convincing package." The controversial cover art of the U.S.A. version of the past HEADSHOTS album, coupled with the lyrics and intense music was conceived to comment on the illusion of Hollywood excess, the search for fame and fortune, and the depression that often occurs when those fantasies go unrealized
With the immediate success of the European release of HEADSHOTS on one of Germany’s most credible independent rock labels Nois-o-lution records set the stage for the band's path to infamy overseas. The international tastemaker publication Kerrang! gave HEADSHOTS "4 Ks" calling it "a flashing Day-Glo explosion of twisted pop intellect that manages to challenge without ever losing sight of an infectious and melodic hook"
