80's Days of Summer: Day 12- Make A Circuit With Me

Today it's all about Rockabilly. This sub-genre of New Wave enjoyed a large resurgence in the late 70's and early 80's, and one of the bands leading the twangy revolution was the London trio, the Polecats. After a series of singles including covers of David Bowie's 'John, I'm Only Dancing' and T-Rex's 'Jeepster', they had their own bona fide hit, 1983's 'Make A Circuit With Me'.

While the sound of the tune was retro, the lyrics were as modern as Commodore 64.
