Stray Cat Singles - Runaway Boys


Pottering about at my mother's the other day I stumbled across a small singles box containing four of five Stray Cats singles belonging to my brother.
I thought it would be a good idea to dust them down, give them a listen and share with you good people.
So for starters here is their debut single from 1980 Runaway Boys written by Brian Setzer and Jimmy McDonnell (aka Slim Jim Phantom)
The b-side is My One Desire written by Dorsey Burnette brother of Johnny and a member of the Rock'n'Roll Trio.
It entered the UK singles charts on 29th November 1980 and was in the  charts for 10 weeks peaking at number 9 their equal highest position along with Rock This Town

  1. Is this going to be a series called MY Brother's Records? I hope so, I seem to recall your brother having a better taste in music than you! My brother, on the other hand, has worse taste than your friend Murray M.

  2. My brother does indeed have good musical tastes.In addition to an impressive Rockabilly section he has nearly everything ever recorded by The Clash and Bruce Springsteen.
