Peter Case-Paul Collins Tour Heats Up


Also doing multiple
shows at SXSW, including the BLURT day party.


By Blurt Staff


Prior to Peter Case forming The Plimsouls in ’78, he was
part of two other influential mid-to-late ’70s bands with Paul Collins  – The
Nerves and The Breakaways (Paul would later go on to form his own
highly-respected group, The Beat). Both Peter and Paul have enjoyed successful
solo careers on record and on the road, but this spring they’ll once again be
reunited for a very special North American tour.


The two frontmen (along with bassist Timm Buechler and
drummer Amos Pitsch) will be performing classic numbers by their bands, The
Nerves and The Breakaways, as well as material by The Plimsouls and The Beat.
For fans of energetic live performances, visceral rock & roll, and raucous,
hook-laden songs that draw as much from the golden age of ’60s pop as they do
from punk, these shows should prove to be nothing short of nirvana.
