Singles Going Single #25 - Drive "tribute" 7'' (1992, First Strike)

For Descendants fans, the sleeve of Drive's "tribute" single depicted directly to your left is a surefire giveaway, with it's parody of the 'dents iconic I Don't Want to Grow Up LP. The other side of the sleeve is a less effective stab at Raymond Pettibone equally iconic art for their take on The Minutemen's classic, "This Ain't No Picnic" Drive were a rather arcane British pop-punk band, existing in the late-'80s/mid-'90s. Often lumped into the same neighborhood as Mega City Four, Hooton 3 Car, and the previously discussed 3 1/2 Minutes, notoriety eluded them, even in their native Liverpool. Their recordings were conglomerated on Boss Tunage's relatively recent Discography 1988-93 CD, which you can check out here.
