IT was 30 years ago today that Nerve Senta used to play. Now the York rock band is to reform for one night only at the Post Office Club on Friday, May 28, and tickets have sold out already so none will be available on the door.

Once more, lead vocalist and guitarist Garry Barrett will front a line-up featuring John Foottit on lead guitar and vocals, Geoff Locker on drums, Gary Varley on bass and vocals and Ian Cole on keyboards.

Nerve Senta played in York and the surrounding area from 1977 to 1981, so impressing local entrepreneurs Dave Leaper and Mal Spence that the Supermusic Ltd bosses invited them to cut an album at Fairview Studios, in Hull.

The subsequent self-titled album contained 12 original tracks, ten written by Garry.

“It proved to be immensely popular, attracting new fans in and outside the city and enabling us to fill each venue to capacity whenever we played,” he recalls.

“It was also reviewed by the Yorkshire Evening Press’s very own music guru, the late Stacey Brewer, who called it ‘a debut album full of musical action’.”

Those songs will be rolled out again at the 8pm reunion on May 28, alongside newer material from Barrett, Foottit and Varley’s later band, Overload.
