1) Restless was formed in 1978 by Mark Harman (g/v), Paul Harman (b) and Ben Cooper (d). The band name was borrowed from a Carl Perkins song. In 1981 "The Restless" EP was issued-limited to 400 copies. Once 'Why Don't You Just Rock!' was out, the boys were pretty much doing the regular Rock 'n' Roll circuit throughout England. Restless played their own style of Rock 'n' Roll and are arguably one of the most influential British Neo-Rockabilly bands. One time they played a 50´s Rockabilly standard just to follow with a pure Psychobilly song.
