Interview with The Drones in Ghast Up Issue 2 from May 1977. The interview took place in the Smithfields pub on Swan Street, Manchester near the Band On The Wall on a Sunday night. Picture by Kevin Cummins.
Is it irony that The Drones became 'City Drones'? I thoroughly enjoyed the later days of The Drones and the start of City Drones; and must have managed most weeks of their long residence at the Band On The Wall (8 weeks?) in early '80's. By then the music was what became regarded as 'powerpop' but the band were arguably better than the original Drones.
