“Nervous Breakdown” Pink Mountaintops

Pink Mountaintops has shared a new video for their take on Black Flag’s “Nervous Breakdown” which opens the upcoming Pink Mountaintops album Peacock Pools, due out on May 6th, 2022 via their new label ATO Records (Amyl and the Sniffers, Alabama Shakes). “Steven McDonald used to always play a disco version of that bassline to annoy [Black Flag co-founder] Keith Morris when they were sound-checking for OFF!, and it ended up fitting perfectly with the demo I’d made,” McBean reveals, referring to McDonald and Morris’s hardcore supergroup.

Keith Morris (Black Flag / Circle Jerks / OFF!) emphatically approves of this new version, sharing: “Great job taking a song that’s been beaten to death by numerous punker dunkers and turning it into your own song! BRAVO!!!!”

McBean has shared a video to accompany the “Nervous Breakdown” single release, cutting together found footage with appearances from McBean, Steven McDonald (Redd Kross), violinist/vocalist Laena Myers-Ionita (Feels, Death Valley Girls), drummer/pianist Joshua Wells (Destroyer, Black Mountain), and drummer Ryan Jewell (Ryley Walker).
