The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 133

Pull up a chair, grab a pint , there’s a band on tonight- The Blue Cats have been rocking and reeling out of south London since the early 80s and while hairlines may have receded the spirit hasn’t diminished. Just right for a boogie on a damp Friday night. Is this what Davy used to call the Smiling Hour? Chin chin.

The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 129

I’ve got ongoing lack of Boxnet bandwidth problems so your Friday night rockabilly comes in the shape of a documentary from London in 1981, then in the thores of a rockabilly revival, presented by Danny Baker and opening with The Blue Cats and then going back to the roots and forward again. Most of the kids dancing in parts one and six will be well into their fifties now, if not older. Fascinating stuff.
