JOLT (Buy CDs by this artist)
The Jolt (UK Polydor) 1978

Small wonder the Jolt was written off as a Scottish Jam clone. The mod trio of singer-guitarist Robert Collins, bassist Jim Doak and drummer Iain Sheddon had — what a coincidence! — the same label, producer, image, type of name and sound. They even played shows together in Glasgow. The Jolt's album shows they could work up a good sweat, but the material is strictly two-dimensional, not a patch on even Paul Weller's most derivative early work.
