The Nervous Eaters - "Hop Sing Said"

Boston punk legends The Nervous Eaters are coming up on fifty years as a band, and somehow they keep making great new music. How many bands do you know that started in the 1970's that you can still get excited about new music from? Their new single, "Hop Sing Said," may not quite have that same punk edge that their early work did, but how many of us do these days? The new song tones it down quite a bit from their heyday and is more of a garage rock/power pop song. There is still a surprising amount of an edge to "Hop Sing Said," and this sounds more like some lost compilation cut from the 90's than a current song by a bunch of guys in their 60s if not 70s.

Singer/guitarist/songwriter/producer Steve Cataldo says of the new song:

"Hop Sing was an influential character from the 1960s TV show Bonanza. His wisdom and humor stuck with me through the years. The song follows the story through the eyes of a street poet whose girlfriend struggles with drug abuse leading to endless disagreements and thoughts of self-destruction. Perhaps redemption could be found if she would only listen to the intelligence of what Hop Sing Says: 'One must always get up before proceeding to get down'-- and how true his words were. Hop Sing was my most favorite character on the show, and still is today."

You can watch the video for "Hop Sing Said" below. Monsters + Angels is due out November 7 on Wicked Cool Records. The album can be pre-ordered here. For more on The Nervous Eaters, check out the band's website.
