Discovering Rebecca Nurse No one can take from us the joy of the first becoming aware of something, the so-called discovery. But if we also demand the honor, it can be utterly spoiled for us, for we are usually not the first. What does discovery mean, and who can say that he has discovered this or that? After all it's pure idiocy to brag about priority, for it's simply unconscious conceit, not to admit frankly that one is a plagiarist. -Goeth And so goes the story of Rock, evolution (not revolution) and Rebecca Nurse. What makes this band so special? Snot-nosed-post-punk/pop-retro 80's bands abound. So why Rebecca Nurse? The answer may be that Rebecca Nurse is none of the above and all of the above, and then some - all at once. The closer you listen, the more you realize, if not recognize, the depth of their influences. And listen you will, as the band demands your attention. Sonic sparks from the savage rhythm section converge with what one critic described as 'a red hot goddess who drips sex appeal as she shimmies and shakes around the stage...Her voice...powerful and confident containing equal doses of sarcasm and sweetness'. Add defiance in the form of guitar. What escapes is great rock music. Creative. Unpretentious. Evolutionary. Powerful. A groovy time for all. Rebecca Nurse is a highly professional and exceptionally skilled act, which you will be proud to show-off as your very own discovery. Oh, and yes, you can dance to it. You know you want to.
