Nervous Jerk | ZORZA Artist Feature
Written by The Team on 2 November 2020
Hailing from the working class back streets of Christchurch and practising in a storage unit in the Woolston badlands is Nervous Jerk. A power-pop trio settling into their fifth year as a band consisting of Tom Kerr, Brad Wright and Johnny Fast.
Although having always been welcome in the New Zealand punk and hardcore scene, Nervous Jerk has never tried to restrain themselves to a fixed genre, taking influence in anything from power-pop, punk, hardcore, and good old rock n’ roll. Nervous Jerk considers themselves a band that are happy to turn their hand to anything, so long as it’s loud, fast and DIY.
