Biography

Polecats was a rockabilly revival band in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

The band formed in 1977. The original line-up was Tim Worman (a.k.a Tim Polecat, vocalist), Martin “Boz” Boorer, (guitarist and vocalist, later of Morrissey’s band), Phil Bloomberg (bassist), and Chris Hawkes (drummer), and originally played under the name “Cult Heroes.”

Finding difficulty persuading promoters to book them on the Rockabilly circuit with a name sounding “too punk”, they adopted Hawkes’ suggested band name The Polecats. Hawkes was later replaced by Neil Rooney.
