The Nip Drivers

The Nip Drivers were an American punk rock band formed in 1982 in Torrance, California. The band was the brainchild of lead singer Mike Webber, and for a time included guitarist Kurt Schellenbach, Janus Jones on bass, and Nick Passiglia on drums, though the lineup at any given time was fluid. They played fast hardcore punk, often infused with humor and a total lack of political correctness. In addition to their own compositions, they recorded sometimes improbable covers of pop hits such as Olivia Newton John’s “Have You Never Been Mellow” and Sweet’s “Fox on the Run”. The latter is heard on the soundtrack of the 1984 film Desperate Teenage Lovedolls. After a period of inactivity, Webber emerged with an all new line-up in the 1990s. In 2000, the '80s LPs were reissued on CD. Webber died in November 2006.
