Friday Night Is Mancabilly Night

A swerve a few miles north of here towards Prestwich for tonight’s rockabilly record- The Fall’s barnstorming cover of White Lightning, written by The Big Bopper and a 1959 hit for George Jones. It’s as rockabilly as creepers, quiffs, snarling and rolled up sleeves. Whatever your tipple is tonight, take care- white lightning’ll make your eyes bug out and your face turn blue.
