Reviews & Opinions

CHARLES P. LAMEY/IRA ROBBINS, THE TROUSER PRESS MUSIC GUIDE, 1991: For a brief moment in the late '70s, it seemed as if the Nuns might be the catalyst for a successful new wave/punk scene in San Francisco. Their early days earned media praise and they owned a rabid local cult following, but time quickly passed them by. Aggressive musicianship and demanding vocals, especially Jennifer Miro's ice-cold, intense singing make the first album (which the group had to reform to record) well worth hearing. Lyrically, the Nuns spoke to the decadent side of life as well as anyone, with such tales as "Wild," "Child Molester" and "Suicide Child."

ALL MUSIC GUIDE: Where the Nuns could have gone from here is anybody's guess - since this is such a schizophrenic album - but worth revisiting as a minor classic of the late-'70s punk era.
