DRIVE, THE- Jerkin 7"
Formed in Dundee in the early days of 1977 The Drive had the humor like the Pork Dukes. They were one of the first Scottish Punk bands and the first to release a single. Debatable whether Punk is the right word with lead & slide guitar featured and not exactly punky tunes. The single "Jerkin' / Push & Shove", joins the list of bawdy sexual punk tunes, though not as gross or rough as the Pork Dukes, and set more glammy Dollsey, stonesy kinda riffs. Originally released on NRG Records in 1977, unusally for the time it was issued without a picture sleeve, which was a testament to the financial strictures at work. Jerkin' also featured on the "Streets" LP compilation released on Beggars Banquet. A projected second single, "Blow Job / Gonorrhoea A Go Go", was never released.
