There is at least more than one artist with the name Whirlwind. 1) Whirlwind was a rockabilly revival band from the U.K. during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Composed of members Nigel Dixon, Chris Emo, Phil Hardy, and Mike Lewis. They helped establish a link between the roots rock community and the punk rock community during this time, opening for the likes of The Clash, Elvis Costello, and Ian Dury. After the band called it quits after two albums, Nigel Dixon went on to form Havana 3 a.m. with Paul Simonon, formerly of The Clash.
