Blowing Up A Storm, CD (£8.11)

In 1978 as punk rock raged all around, Whirlwind were the unlikely choice of support act among the punk rockers and new wavers. Fronted by the charismatic Nigel Dixon, they opened for everyone from the Clash, to Blondie and the Blockheads. Their stripped-down boppin’ rockabilly endeared them to punks and Teds alike, despite the alleged aggro between them. This first album originally appeared as a 10”, but here we have the full 12” track listing, complete with Barney Bubbles’ masterful cover. The album consists mainly of covers of hot records from the then burgeoning rockabilly scene with a smattering of originals from Nigel and guitarist Mick Lewis. This album is a reminder of why they were thee hot rockin’ band of choice nearly 30 years ago.
