Nervous Records

Where’s your tan, Mike? Nervous boss comes from home from his trip to Tulum (with the two label models, naturally) and remains very pale indeed – despite temperatures of up to 30°C in recent days…

It can't be easy being Michael Weiss of Nervous Records this week. A few days ago, the label boss went down to the Mexican municipality of Tulum. It's not entirely clear from the label's social media accounts what the reason for the trip was - but an insider tells me…

Will 2022 be the year the Nervous ad department joins this century? Label finally responds to accusations of sexism, denying claims of objectifying women…

Ever since I started speaking out about the painfully outdated advertising that Nervous Records stubbornly persist in using, the label has responded in the way it always does - by doubling down on its strategy whilst ignoring the criticism. But it's a tactic which only works if you're right to…

At least some things never change, eh? Nervous end the year by sticking to tradition – that is, the one where they stick a lady up on Instagram to amuse people who still think it’s 1991…

Wonder if he’s related to Todd Terry? LGNDS in New York on December 18th has Steve Lawler, Boris – that’s the Russian DJ, not the British PM – and some bloke called Todd Tery…
