THE JOLT (YOU'RE COLD SINGLE)

The Jolt are the answer to a trivial trivia question: Which area punk band was the first to play in Glasgow, a city then known as a no-fly-zone for such acts? (They are said to have beaten Johnny & The Self Abusers to this distinction by just two nights.) The trio didn’t stick around long, however. Dispirited by their advancement (or lack thereof) in Scotland, The Jolt uprooted and headed to London in early 1977 to join an already bloated music scene in the capital. There, the trio gigged at the big punk circuits of the day, did a stint opening for The Jam and X-Ray Spex, and was snapped up by Polydor in August of ‘77. This is the first of four singles, and the most punk sounding one of the bunch. they released a very underrated album as well. The band split up after the release of their final single, Maybe Tonight in 1979.
