Singles Going Single #108 - Nub 7" (1994, Iteration)

Not to be confused with the band The Nubs, who released the classic "Job" 7" (which you can partake in here), Nub were a mid-90s Bay Area punk trio who took some very recognizable cues from another local punk trio on the rise, specifically Jawbreaker. On their lone single (I'm assuming anyway) these guys did the power-punk thing quite convincingly. The real treat here is the b-side, "The Road Less Traveled" where mouthpiece/axe-handler Scott busts out a devastating vocal hook improving the dynamic of not only the song, but the single/ep as a whole. Cool.

B. The Road Less Traveled
