This is an unofficial site dedicated to The Nips
(AKA The Nipple Erectors)

The Nips were a band that played in and around London between 1977 and 1980, best known for their unique musical blend, attitude, and sense of humor. They've been labeled as punk, rockabilly, mod, R&B, ted, indie, and many other things, none of which completely describe who they were. This site is an attempt to capture their story.
