Past Masterpiece of the Week (August 29-Sept 4, 2016): The Drones – Further Temptations

Before wireless controlled hobby quadcopters or US military weaponized unmanned aerial vehicles raining death from the sunny skies, and decades before the Australian band formed under the same moniker, there was simply the British punk band, The Drones.


From video description:

The Drones started out in the Manchester area in 1974 as a Glam Rock outfit called Rockslide, releasing a lone single ‘Jump Bump Boogaloo’ / ‘Roller Coaster’ in October 1975, before reinvented themselves as a punk rock band the following year. The Drones then relocated to London and became one of the pioneering punk bands that performed in the first few months of the now-legendary Roxy Club. They supported The Vibrators in January 1977, headlined in February, and supported X-Ray Spex and Chelsea in March. Later that year they supported The Stranglers on a full UK tour, and appeared on two influential early punk compilation albums ‘Streets’ and ‘Short Circuit: Live at the Electric Circus’. Their debut EP, ‘Temptations Of A White Collar Worker’ (1977), was described by one reviewer as “classic dole-queue punk.” In October 1977, their second single, ‘Just Wanna Be Myself’ / ‘Bone Idol’, was released, and on 6th December they recorded a session at Maida Vale 4 studio for John Peel. Later that month, they released ‘Further Temptations’, their debut album on Valer Records, produced by Simon Humphrey, and now regarded by many as a punk classic.
