The Drones - Further Temptations
Long before the Australian newcomers appropriated the name, Manchester's The Drones were cutting their teeth on the grit of 70's punk. The band started a few years prior to the break of punk but quickly switched from pub rock
to punk with the addition of a new drummer in '77. The band held some local popularity and had ties with man about Manchester (and Art of Noise member) Paul Morley who managed the band for a short time. Following a self-released single and the split of Morely, who chose to air his grievances with the band in the press, the band recorded this album containing both sides of their first couple of singles. The album wraps plenty of disenchanted sneer and scowl and did well enough to get them noticed by Island offshoot Fabulous who signed them after its release. Though the band would never be able to finish the sessions for their second album as they split before any of them could be released. This one stands as a testament to their impact and strength at the time though and should fit in nicely amongst your early punk collection.
