This 24-minute short film from director Barney Broom finds four mouthy motorbike-riding punk lads (Daniel Peacock, Pete Lee-Wilson, Jon Eden and Mark Draper) on a night out in Great Yarmouth.
They repeatedly harass a group of attractive girls (Cindy Day, Jenny Bonada, Tiffany Brown and Jeanette Neely), antagonise the other holiday-makers and generally cause trouble in an amusement park – along with some classic “nutty boy” dancing by the Waltzer (pictured).
But they find themselves thwarted at every turn by the “Knights Electric” – a quartet of silent, sharply dressed spectral Gary Numan/Kraftwerk clones (Peter Harvey, Ziggy B Summers, Mark Scott and Eddie Riseman) – who drive a big white Cadillac and eventually get the girls.
Essentially a long music video with very little in the way of plot, it’s a bright, colourful, glossy and visually impressive widescreen film with a soundtrack including songs from Madness, Martha & The Muffins, The Pretenders, Blondie and The Ruts.
The short film was screened in British cinemas as a support to both Brimstone and Treacle and Inseminoid.
