Oi!Driver


Not much is known about this 2-man pogo punk band. There are many theories and legends as to how they formed and even more myths about how they broke up (and how many times they've broken up). During the short two years that they were around they recorded only 2 albums and one EP which were quickly bootlegged onto the internet without their knowledge. There are several stories on how they formed. Some say that they ran into each other at a library Read more on Last.fm
Not much is known about this 2-man pogo punk band. There are many theories and legends as to how they formed and even more myths about how they broke up (and how many times they've broken up). During the short two years that they were around they recorded only 2 albums and one EP which were quickly bootlegged onto the internet without their knowledge. There are several stories on how they formed. Some say that they ran into each other at a library while trying to spange enough money to pay for their bus fares and all they knew how to say in english was Oi! Duraiba! Others say that they came along with the Discocks as their drivers during their '97 tour and somehow got lost.

Since their english was minimal at best, when people asked them who they were they only replied with "Oi duraiba" as a reference to their job as drivers for the Discocks. Some even go as far as saying that they're not even real and that they're just ghosts of pogo past. On the reasons for their breakup, it has been said that they broke up because they got into a horrible bus accident and couldn't pogo anymore or that they got so drunk that they crashed into a bus with the same results. Another source says that they actually left the pogo scene to become a Kreator tribute band.

Some have even said that that they moved back to Japan to find that Discocks were no longer playing and were so depressed and discouraged by this that they too broke up the band. How much of these are facts and how much is fiction no one will ever know. No one seems to have a definite answer and sources to prove any of it. Whatever the case, their seemingly mindless lyrics and happy go lucky fun tunes mixed with noticeable UK Oi! influences have gone on to captivate the pogo punks in everyone. And in the end, they will always remain as they were known to say "just a little Japanese and Korean pogo spikys play oi for you." Read more on Last.fm.
