This project however was restarted in 2010.

Drones were a punk rock band from Manchester, England. For a period of time, the band were produced and managed by Paul Morley.
Formed in Manchester in 1975, the band started out as a pub rock outfit called Rockslide and released a single called Roller Coaster. When their only single did not have an impact, they reinvented themselves as a punk rock band. They played Deeply Vale Festivals one year as Rockslide and the next year as The Drones. The band developed a local rivalry with the emerging band the Buzzcocks, but failed to match the success of their rivals outside of their home town.
