[Jerk Ward was formed in Summer 1982 by three teenagers and played their first show in September of 1983 with Scream from Washington, DC. They released two demo cassettes; one self titled cassette with 21 songs and another with 16 songs entitled “Flesh and Bones.” They played straight forward hardcore punk and tried their best to emulate The Neos, who were their “heroes and helped us out a great deal, including recording us and coming out to Sidney from Victoria to see us play in our Grade 8 band room at lunch time,” says Steve McBean. They were also inspired by Red Tide, 7 Seconds, Black Flag, Discharge, Minor Threat, etc.  Jerk Ward’s last show was in the Summer of ‘84 in Steve Bailey’s (The Neos) basement with Nomeansno and Dayglo Abortions. A blog entry about their 2007 reunion show appears at Old Fast and Loud and discography page can be found at Kill from the Heart. Drummer Jon London passed away in 2012.]
