Formed 1972.


Tractor is a band founded in Rochdale, Lancashire, England by guitarist/vocalist Jim Milne and drummer Steve Clayton in 1971. Both had been members of a beat group, The Way We Live since 1966. They are notable both for their appreciation by John Peel and Julian Cope, but also for their longevity because as of 2007, they are still performing. The band was produced initially by schoolfriend sound engineer John Brierley. Brierley was sacked by Jim Milne in late 1972 and replaced by Alan Burgess as recording engineer, and Chris Hewitt as manager and live sound engineer.
