The summer of 1981 was the summer of love for Mike Sabbath. As he and his steadfast teenage companions struggle to come to terms with adulthood upon finishing school, they embark on a venture to rescue themselves from the drudgery of their low paid and uninspiring jobs. Yet there is danger ahead. The small old market town of Dursley, perched precariously on the edge of the Cotswolds, is rife with youth gangs, each eager to defend its territory in the face of adversity. As Mike Sabbath and his friends come under threat from a renegade group of angry mods led by the merciless Ally Bingham, they are forced into an alliance with the town’s 1950s nostalgia groupings; the teddy boys known as the Hound Dogs, and the rockabillies who call themselves the Stray Cats. Amid the mayhem the young and somewhat vulnerable Sabbath, an idealistic daydreaming peacenik, pleads only for harmony. But harmonious relations are not on the agenda for the gangs of Dursley.
