Swervedriver – Raise

Swervedriver by default were part of the Thames Valley scene, but they fitted a more metal scene. They formed in Oxford (home of Ride), from the ashes of several hardcore groups. Lead singer Adam Franklin had crusty style dreadlocks which made Swervedriver popular with that fraternity.  The subject matter of their songs showed a preoccupation with the American mid-west. Lyrics about pick-up trucks and highways dominated their debut album Raise.

Son Of Mustang Ford
