The Drones were one of the pioneering punk bands that performed in the first few months of the now-legendary Roxy Club. They supported The Vibrators in January 1977, headlined in February, and supported X-Ray Spex and Chelsea in March. Later that year they supported The Stranglers on a full UK tour. Their debut EP, ‘Temptations Of A White Collar Worker’ (1977), was described by one reviewer as “classic dole-queue punk.” In October 1977, their second single, ‘Just Wanna Be Myself’ / ‘Bone Idol’, was released, and on 6th December they recorded a session at Maida Vale 4 studio for John Peel. Later that month, they released their debut album on Valer Records, ‘Further Temptations’.
