Review

A best of collection from rockabilly revival legends, The Polecats!

Features the massive hit single Make A Circuit With Me and the notorious cover of David Bowie s John, I m Only Dancing plus 12 other rockabilly classics!

In 1981, The Polecats hit the rockabilly revival scene with a stylish look and the legendary album Polecats Are Go! combining piano, saxophone and meticulous vocal melodies with their glistening guitars, acoustic bass and driving drums!

One of the most original bands to emerge from the UK s early 80s rockabilly revival scene, The Polecats combined ecstatic, propulsive rhythms, T-Rex-inspired guitars and charismatic frontman in the person of Tim Polecat Worman. Worman, who founded the band along with Martin Boz Boorer, led the group on a wild and audacious if brief career trajectory, beginning in 1981 with the release of their fantastic debut album, Polecats Are Go!. The album quickly found an audience among the retro rock crowd, especially the band s cover of Bowie s John, I m Only Dancing and the supercharged boogie woogie of Big Green Car. 2 years later, Worman and company returned with a genius slice of retropop heaven, the group s biggest single ever Make A Circuit With Me. Soon enough, every club kid in every major city was hopping to the the sounds of the Polecats . More albums followed, and while each release contained the band s signature infectiousness, none quite reached the level of success of the debut or the Circuit single and the band soon parted ways. Boorer would go on to join The Smith s Morrissey and Worman hooked up with Slim Jim Phantom of The Stray Cats and Danny B. Harvey of The Swingcats, to form 13 Cats, rockabilly s first supergroup! But the Polecats live on with this special compilation, which collects the brightest moments from the group s storied history. --Cleopatra Records
