The Polecats The Very Best Of Limited Edition Pink Vinyl LP

Limited edition pink vinyl compilation of the best tracks from rockabilly revival legends, The Polecats, features the massive hit single Make A Circuit With Me and more fan favorites!
Equally bequiffed but more heavily made-up than their contemporaries, the Polecats were one of the more successful bands involved in the early 80s UK rockabilly revival. Martin Boz Boorer (guitar) and Tim Polecat Worman (guitar/vocals) first played together while still at school in the mid-70s. They were joined in the earliest Polecats line-up by Phil Bloomberg (double bass) and Chris Hawkes (drums), performing at their local church hall in September 1978. Bloomberg played bass and drums on their earliest recordings, which led to the first release on the Nervous label which would later release more rockabilly both past and present. Chicken Shack proved strong enough to attract the attention of Mercury Records who put the band, now with new drummer Neil Rooney, under the production auspices of Dave Edmunds. The first single for the label was a cover version of David Bowies John Im Only Dancing which made the UK Top 40 in early 1981 and was followed up with a re-recording of Rockabilly Guy (the b-side to Chicken Shack) which was also a Top 40 hit. For their third Mercury single they covered Marc Bolans Jeepster, helped out by the songs original producer Tony Visconti. Boorer was a Bolan devotee, taking his heros place in later re-formations of Johns Children which he helped instigate.
