Jenners Field - Drunk Drive
Label: JF Records
Format: 7"


Strong debut single from late 1970s and early 1980s post punk-influenced young London band, Jenners Field

For a young band in which the oldest member is only 21 Jenners Field sound both remarkably confident and mature in sound. One should not perhaps be totally surprised, however, as the South London-based four piece have been writing and playing together for six years already. ‘Drunk Drive’, their debut single, which is being released on MP3 and in an edition of 500 vinyl copies, is a dark throwback to the late 1970s and early 1980s. With its bleak, cascading guitars, it recalls bands like the Cure and Siouxsie and the Banshees. Vocalist Laurie Belgrave meanwhile has all the twitching nerviness of Wire’s Colin Gilbert and Josef K’s Paul Haig as he describes a night out that will go tragically wrong and end in death. Jenners Field have recently sold out the legendary 100 Club, and on the evidence of this strong opening offering, like White Lies before them, seem set to meet with major success.
