The Jerks

Oldham band. Line-up: John Reed - Vocals, Guitar, Lee 'Drany' Dransfield - Guitar, Warren Wrigley - Bass, David 'Dids' Gill - Keyboards, Andy Price - Drums. Before Andy Price joined the ubiquitous Chris Goodwin played drums for them for some time. Several demo tapes recorded at The Mill by Clint Boon. 'Waterskin' released on the compilation tape 'Kite' and 'Didn't Quite Make It' released on the Bop/Joe Bloggs compilation Hit The North. After John Reed left Lee Severin from Too Much Texas replaced him and they replaced their set, soon afterwards changing their name to Rubber Orange. (Submitted 11/03/08 by Keir Hardie).
