In Boston, the middle of the 1970s “Me Decade” saw a bunch of young, loud and snotty bands–inspired by ’60s garage rock pioneers like Willie “Loco” Alexander–playing raw, original rock and roll. The Real Kids, Nervous Eaters, DMZ and The Neighborhoods (as well as Alexander’s own Boom Boom Band) were known for their amazing live performances and an unwavering commitment to honest, hard-driving music. This is their story, recounted by surviving band members, as well as people who were on the scene like Denis Leary, Jonathan Richman, producers Rick Harte, Andy Paley, Bruce Dickinson and more. “Boys From Nowhere” celebrates the transcendent power of rock and roll!

The Nervous Eaters debuted in early 1977 at the Rat in Boston, MA with Steve Cataldo on Vocal and Guitar, Rob Skeen on Bass and Jeff Wilkerson on Drums. Their first single “Loretta” was released that year under the Rat Record label. By 1978 the band was one of the most popular acts in New England opening for many National Acts including The Pretenders, Iggy Pop, The Ramones and The Split Endz among others performing in the Northeast and other parts of the Country. They recorded an album for Elektra Records which was released nationally in 1980. They also have recorded for Penniman, No Tomorrow and Ace of Hearts Records.
