Any of you original Crazies will remember this short film made by the Meteors back in 1980. as far as I remember it was shown as a support film to the Ska related music film 'Dance Craze', I remember seeing it in the cinema but it was a long time ago and memories a bit shot now so forgive me for any errors.

This version is just as bad as the copy I have on VHS tape as the original was actually in colour. It features songs from the first Meteors EP 'Meteor Madness' and for what it's worth I think their best line up. The combination of Nigel Lewis's sci-fi related tunes combined with P. Paul Fenech's more traditional rockabilly rhythms inspired and helped create a whole genre of music later termed psychobilly. Seeing the Meteors for the first time at the tender age of 16 at the 'nite of horror rock' at Hammersmith Palais back in 1981, helped fuel my ongoing interest in rock'n'roll and rockabilly and importantly also opened my ears to searching backwards into the catalogue of early rock'n'roll artists. Anyway enjoy the film, it's in 2 parts, sorry about the quality but it's still worth a view.
And here's the promo for 'Graveyard Stomp ' from 1981
