For a very short time / after punk and before New Romantic..Rock n Roll and

Rockabilly in that slither of time between 1978 - 1980 saw a resurgence.Whirlwind,StrayCats, even watery Shakey!

The Cocked Hat was the place to go.

Old glass eye on the piano.

Funny punks,Teds and Rockers all mixed..and there was little aggro in the carpark after hours.

Years later i met Crazy Cavan in Holland and we swapped stories.

This song tore up the place.

I did enjoy the Psychobilly phase for a while, not sure how we got out alive from some of those Guana Bats & Meteors gigs down The Union & The Brit when the Wrecking Crew turned up? I later drifted into King Kurt & joined up with the Rat & Rodent Club.

First bought this on the Charley label...but when the money rolled in..just had to have it on Sun.

I am sure Michael Booth would approve.

A cocked Hat special.

Link was a Shawnee man and lost a lung in Korea..told to stop singing and he was a prolific instrumentalist..Rumble etc. 

Glad he ignored his Docs advice...this was a B side on the Swan label.

I was a sucker for that red guitar..and only strummed downward.

His Mother showed me his room when on a pilgrimage to his home.

Eddie perished in that car crash...Gene Vincent survived ..Dave Dee a newly serving officer arrives at the scene..and rescues the famous guitar.

As Eddie and Gene dashed into that fateful Ford Consul that night a very young boy held the door open for them...Mr.Marc Bolan.

Very picky...in periods, when it comes to Elvis. Very early stuff is terrific...then 1968 - 1972.

This was one of my 'must gets' when i was big into record hunting...and picked up a spanking copy in the YMCA in Nottm.

This has that 'one take, one room vibe.'
