The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 109

I’ve posted this song before but it bears repeating- Sparkle Moore (born Barbara Morgan) was a pioneer of 50s rockabilly. She toured with Gene Vincent and dressed in men’s leathers. Caused quite a stir I imagine. Sparkle only recorded seven songs, four released across a pair of 7″ singles (in 1956 and ’57) and three left unreleased. In 1957 she retired from the music industry to raise a family. And that’s it. But what a tune.

‘You should be labelled with a skull and cross bones
You’re a jinx on my soul’

Skull And Cross Bones

Just Bob Our Heads To This Groove Right Here

This is a delightfully deep, dark Craig Bratley remix of Four Walls from back in 2011, featuring a man talking about going nightclubbing; not there for the smoke or the VIP section or the champagne, just the music. Craig Bratley has recently contributed a 10″ single to Andrew Weatherall’s Bird Scarer vinyl only series.
