Four rowdy punk teenage boys try it on with four girls they fancy one neon-lit evening at a Great Yarmouth seaside funfair. Meanwhile, the sharply-dressed Knights Electric watch and wait. Exuberantly performed and strikingly shot, this dialogue-free pop music short boasts a superb soundtrack, with great tracks by Madness, John Foxx, The Pretenders, Blondie, the Ruts and Martha and the Muffins.
