She Only Dances To Rock Steady

The Hussy’s were a six piece from Glasgow who released an e.p. in 2005, one in 2006 and another in 2007. The trail runs a bit cold there. Their myspace says there’s now only three of them and there don’t seem to be any other releases. This song, Rock Steady, is the only one I’ve got. It’s a sweetly sardonic tale of a mod-girl who only dances to rock steady and her scooter-boy boyfriend who is seen hitching lifts from the edge of town because his scooter’s broken down. The song’s a bit ska-ish, with a chorus that threatens to turn into The Police (but thankfully doesn’t).
