Lost and found: Make a circuit with the Pole Cats



The Stray Cats were the darlings of the rockabilly revival in the '80s, but in 1983 the English band The Pole Cats made the irresistible Make A Circuit With Me. I’m going out on a limb, but this is probably the only '80s song to use words like diode and cathode in the chorus.


Wondering where you've heard the song before? It was used for TV trailer's for the animated movie WALL-E.

Formed in North London in 1977, the Polecats are still around and continue to tour. You can find dates on their official website, aptly found at
