This English cheapie tries to cash in on the 'Rock And Roll' craze, but is relentlessly cornball and old-fashioned in it's outlook. Lee Patterson and his too-perky girlfriend, assisted by her 'with it' auntie decide to open a coffee bar to attract teens. Not stopping at at, they at the record counter, then a studio. The 'teens' themselves are portrayed as wide-open spaces, easily swung by any music, even the tripe they are forced to listen to here.
We see performances of skiffle, R 'n' B and folk music, and the whole thing does have a kind of allure, in it's look at the new scene as it was happening. England didn't swing in 1958, it was still in the grip of the old school, who tried to control the music and render it harmless. The Beatles were still four years away. The movie also is a showcase of new singing sensation, Terry Dene. His total lack of presence or personality didn't stop his promotion as an English Elvis. He had limited success, with cover songs, before a nervous breakdown, and a conversion to evangelical religion.
