3:01 Pick Me Up: Levi and the Rockats Note From the South
Let’s face it: 3 p.m. is the cruelest time of the workday. The morning latte has worn off, and the post-lunch crash has you staggering around like an extra from a George A. Romero flick. That’s why, each weekday at 3:01 p.m., we present you with a video hand-picked to kick-start your heart.
Levi Dexter and the Rockats.
These guys were Teddy Boys, and part of the neo-rockabilly scene of the 1980s. They opened for Kiss, David Bowie, Iggy Pop and The Clash among others, and they were one of the first rockabilly bands to incorporate punk and new wave. A pretty big deal!
My favourite part of the video, though, is the guy at the beginning preaching about "the beat, the beat, the beat!" That scary beat.
