Waikato-based rock band caught somewhere between indie-rock (think Super-chunk) and early New York punk, based around singer-songwriter Jamie Stone. Trucker released the full-length debut Jude and had several bFM singles before calling it a day in 2001.
Along with Stone (Gat Vox), trucker contained (at one time or another) Stan Jagger (Gat), Dolf De Borst (aka Dolf Datsun) Paul Tregilgas (Drums), Terry Edwards (Drums), Paul Oakley (Bass), and Julian Smith (Gat). With Dolf’s success in the Datsuns, Trucker released a post-breakup 10″ EP, taken from their last session in 2001 and released it on the Datsuns’ own Hell Squad label.
