Biography

Jewdriver was first conceived at a secret location in Oakland, California(circa 1994) when Ian Stuartstein and a fellow named Jay Oniskinwitz were sharing a bottle of Cherry Manischewitz (our official drink), something infected their brains that night and they thought “Wouldn’t a Jewish Skinhead band be a great idea?!?!?”

We discussed the idea with Max Bagels that evening over a vicious drinking game known as “quarters” involving many bottles of extremely low grade Tequila manufactured in nearby San Jose and Jewdriver was well on its way to being formed. We toiled for awhile under the name G.I. Jew and things were going quite well, we played shows with little known bands at the time like Green Day, Rancid, the Lizards, Schlong, Neurosis,Guano and Ding Dang among others, we had no idea that some of these bands were going to go on and become so filthy rich and famous, we just could not get it together like that.

Ian started to discover his “Inner Jew” around 1996 or so after a brush with death and this was when G-d spoke to him and laid out what the future would hold…shortly thereafter, Ian fired the entire band and recruited a group of young, impressionable Zionist skinhead kids from the local region. He renamed the band Jewdriver and began his campaign to fulfill G-d’s wishes. The band moved ever so slowly and rarely played except for the occasional Bar Mitzvah or wedding.
