Would you care to shag, Martha?

A long dead British genre of music combining rockabilly and 80's garage trash with B-movie, horror and zombie theatrics. The Meteors claimed to be the only true psychobilly band despite their ditching of the revered double bass. Other example are the Guana Batz, Krewmen, Quakes, Demented Are Go, Skitzo and the Coffin Nails.
Klub Foot was the venue to go to.

A fan of such music characterized by the mutating of a traditional rockabilly pomp into a zombified quiff, shaved to the bone at the back and sides. Sometimes with a shaved section on top which left a horseshoe quiff.
~Only the Meteors are pure Psychobilly.
~Hmmm, bit of a childish attitude there.
