Album cover

Native Nod


Formed by four teens in 1990, emo outliers Native Nod released only a handful of songs in their short tenure but earned a cult following for their slanted synthesis of disparate strains of late ’80s/early ’90s underground music. It was a subculture within a subculture, and it saw itself, in part, as an antidote to the tough-guy hardcore that had spread from CBGB’s. Helmed by vocalist Chris Leo, with brother Danny on drums, bassist Dave Lerner, and guitarist Justin Simon, Native Nod were an unbreakable foursome that released a trio of seminal 7” EPs for the venerable Gern Blandsten label.
