Sweden, 1961. Entertainment history is made when, in tribute to the satellite launched by the USSR four years earlier, an obscure rock 'n' roll group changes its name to The Spotnicks and starts wearing spacesuits onstage. Fame, fortune, and number one hits in Australia and Japan soon follow. Here, in 1962, the group performs "The Rocket Man" (definitely NOT the Elton John hit from a decade later, though Sir Elton would probably appreciate their suggestively shaped helmets).
