The Jolt were a Scottish band formed in Glasgow in 1976. They started out playing 1960s covers and then sped up their music, playing a mix of punk rock and power pop. The lineup was Robbie Collins, Jim Doak and Iain Shedden. The band built up its following playing at the Crown Hotel, Wishaw. They enjoyed moderate success during the punk and early new wave era. They moved to London, England and signed to Polydor Records. They opened for bands such as The Jam, The Stranglers and Generation X. They were precursors to the mod revival, which came to fruition around 1979, the year the band split.
