I Like This: Nerds With Guitars

Brent is back with another recommendation – AC

Nerds With Guitars are a duo hailing out of Toronto and like many other bands, have done bars and clubs but unlike many other local bands, they also perform at comic conventions, comedy clubs and comic book awards shows. But behind the nerdiness there lies a set of really solid musical chops.

They’ve just released a three song ep called For The Record which you can stream the whole thing below.


Alan Cross

is an internationally known broadcaster, interviewer, writer, consultant, blogger and speaker. In his 40+ years in the music business, Alan has interviewed the biggest names in rock, from David Bowie and U2 to Pearl Jam and the Foo Fighters. He’s also known as a musicologist and documentarian through programs like The Ongoing History of New Music.

    Thanks to Alan and Brent for bringing attention to our little project. It's a real honour to be mentioned twice on this site – Sean and I are big fans, and we genuinely appreciate the support.

    For those who liked the EP stream and want to buy it, we've got it for sale in any format you want on BandCamp for whatever price you feel it's worth.


    Thanks for listening, and we're looking forward to the full album of our silliness!

    Absolute nerdgasm!

    Should I be proud that I know all the references in Sympathy for Daleks? Nice to see an homage to NIN in there too.

    Thanks for sharing this Alan.

    @Alex James: keep up the great work! I'll be sharing your music with my like-minded salt-shaker sympathizers.

    Yawn, them again? Their Kickstarter campaign drastically failed to meet its goal, ffs.

    This is a personal plug, as Brent and Alex know each other. I'll start giving Brent credit when he discovers talent separate from people who suck each other's nutsacks.

    @nikkor I get the feeling that one of these guys ( guys from nwg or brent) fucked your girl? maybe some sexual tension between you guys?
    Also the fact that their kickstarter campain didnt meet its goals doesn't mean shit, in fact they will probably fail a couple more times before making it, but that's the beauty of being in the music game.
    And don't get all pissy because Brent is helping out a friend. It's how it works.

    one more question for now
    do you have a band?
    I'd love to hear it. Maybe Brent can plug you guys or even have you guys open up for NWG

    If I was lucky enough to have friends that awesome, I would want to tell everyone about them, too.
