REWARD
RECORDS

Reward Records was a one-off DIY label, but a very collectable one.  Reward's sole release was a single by Rockslide, 'Jump Bump Boogaloo' b/w 'Roller Coaster'.  It had a catalogue number of MAG-0004, which shows that it was made through Magnum Studios of Hyde, and it came out in 1974.  It wouldn't be worth very much if Rockslide hadn't abandoned their 'funky Pop' style, embraced Punk and been reborn as The Drones, but as it stands the few copies that are available online are on offer at around the 500 mark. The Drones moved from Manchester to London and were soon deeply involved in the Punk movement; if they played 'Jump Bump Boogaloo' at any of their gigs I'd be very surprised.  They put out the much more Punky-sounding 'Temptations Of A White Collar Worker' EP on their own O.H.M...S. label in July 1977 before signing to Valer Records and making an album and a single for that company. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
