The Rezillos formed in 1976 through a shared love of Sixties Garage Rock and the Spectoresque Girl Group glam of The Ronettes and The Shangri-Las. Their debut single, “I Can’t Stand My Baby”, shot them to underground fame initially via airings on BBC Radio 1 John Peel’s radio show. Their classic singles “My Baby Does Good Sculptures”, “Top of the Pops” and “Destination Venus” followed shortly afterwards.
Their landmark album of 1978 “Can’t Stand the Rezillos” reached the top 10 in the UK album chart. They appeared twice on the legendary Old Grey Whistle Test and hit the Top Twenty with their hit single ‘Top of the Pops’. The live recording, “Mission Accomplished… But the Beat Goes On”, LP swiftly followed before the band promptly broke up to the anguish of fans and music critics alike.
The Rezillos reformed recently and toured the UK as special guests of The Stranglers promoting their first album in 36 years, the critically acclaimed “Zero”.
