Peter Case & Paul Collins

#sxsw #PeterCase&PaulCollins


Listen to Working Too Hard

In 1975 Peter and Paul first worked together in the now legendary band The Nerves, the band that spawned number one hits like “Hanging on the Telephone” for Blondie and “Come Back Stay” for Paul Young. The Nerves were trails blazers from their beginnings in San Francisco when they recorded their now collector’s item EP.

With the demise of The Nerves Peter and Paul carried on briefly with The Breakaways which spring boarded them into their own separate but equally influential bands…The Plimsouls (Peter Case) and The Beat (Paul Collins) which effectively defined the power pop scene in Los Angeles and America circa 1980.

For the very first time since The Nerves Peter and Paul will perform all the hits from The Nerves, The Plimsouls and The Beat
