Rockabilly tracks

I'm thinking of putting together a playlist based on Moz's rockabilly period.
Anyone like to suggest what might go in it?

Obv 'Sing Your Life' would be in there for starters, the unreleased 'Old 'billy Tune' (unused Alain Whyte demo), & Born To Hang, plus The Loop, plus King Leer.

Journalists Who Lie has that rockabilly rhythm vibe. I get the feeling not a lot of people like track though. It basically sounds like Dog on A Chain 1990.

Yep I think it (JWL) does have the vibe, thanks but not the greatest of tracks, like you allude to.

Some 'little bastard' beat me to it:


At least we got all of them (& more) in the list.

I think the SYL here must be the KROQ version?

Just listen to the first chord of the guitar here from SYL at KROQ c.5-6 seconds in...it sounds exactly like the opening chord of the unused demo Old 'billy Tune. Well done Alain Whyte in eventually getting (at least some of) it into a song! :)
