Welcome to Nicole's Rockin' Web Site

What is this site all about?

This site is intended to answer your queries about rockabilly, and is aimed at:
Bewildered novices, who might be asking themselves "What is rockabilly?"
Curious lapsers, who might be wondering "Are there still any rockabillies out there?"

Who am I and what do I know about rockabilly?

Well, I'm a curious lapser! I was on the scene for about four years from '85 to '89, then did the round-the-world thing, came back, settled out of London and so found myself becoming less outwardly involved in the scene – although my records never got dusty! I now live in the South of France and, although a major material possession downsize was necessary, my records, photos and some special pieces from my 50's wardrobe are here with me.

And why create this site?

Well, I still love the music of course, but I guess I just miss the spirit of the scene and the sense of contented belonging that being a part of it gave me. Creating this web site has given me an excuse to call up old friends, look through old photos, dig out my old clothes and visit a couple of old haunts!
