Restless is a British rockabilly band formed in 1978. The group got their name from a song by Carl Perkins.[1] The band performed their first gig in Sudbury in 1980, but the gig was hampered by frontman Mark Harman suffering from stage fright.[2] Their first album, Why Don't You...Just Rock!, was released on Nervous Records in 1982.[3]
