The CD : Another great recording by Steve Eyres & his new studio. This CD contains 7 tracks. The most notable being ‘Super Hero’ which saw plenty of air time on the local indie spotlight radio time slot.
     The band is notorious for their ‘on again’ ‘off again’ relationship but still manage to appear live when it counts.
This is a solid demo of the extreme true hard-core nature & instantly put Nerve on the radar as a band with promise. Lack of new material slowed things down for the next 5 years, but they re-emerged in 2003 exactly where they left off. Powerful & to the point.
   This cassette release came out in a great year where the underground scene championed above all. The CAW Hall was the place to catch bands & the Legendary (now closed) Aberdeen was hosting a new generation of bands spawned from the grunge era.
   Supersucker was re-mastered and re-Released on CD in 2002 just before the NMSC (southwestern Ontario’s New Music Showcase) that year where they placed second overall.

Recorded, mixed, and engineered by Steve Eyres (1996) At Steve Eyres Basement Studio.
