Meat Whiplash was an alternative rock band from East Kilbride, Scotland, that were amongst the first to be signed to Creation Records. The line-up was Paul McDermott (vox), Stephen McLean (guitar), Edward Connelly (bass guitar) and Michael Kerr (drums). They took their name from a B-side track by The Fire Engines.[1] They then became The Motorcycle Boy when female singer Alex Taylor (of The Shop Assistants) joined the group in 1987. They only had one record released, Don't Slip Up, which spent 19 weeks in the UK's independent music chart, where it reached the #3 position following its release on 14 September 1985 as a 7" single,[2] (which had a sleeve featuring actor Robert Vaughn, printed up by Bobby Gillespie and hand-folded by their record label's owner, Alan McGee). They are notorious for being the opening band at The Jesus and Mary Chain's infamous "riot gig" at the North London Polytechnic on 15 March 1985, where they threw a wine bottle into the crowd and were, according to The Jasmine Minks, the next band set to play, then beaten-up on-stage by members of the audience who later rioted when the controversial main act performed. They also had a session in the Maida Vale studios for John Peel's show on BBC Radio 1 on 15 October that same year.
