+ special guests Department S
The Rezillos debut celebrated with the album played in it entirety + more.
To co-incide with Cherry Red Records 2CD anthology 'Flying Saucer Attack: The Complete Recordings 1977-1979', The Rezillosare celebrating their incredible debut album 'Can't Stand The Rezillos' by performing it in it's entirety for the first time ever at London's 229.
The Rezillos formed in 1976t hrough 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 John Peel's radio show. Their classic singles 'My Baby Does Good Sculptures', 'Top of the Pops' and 'Destination Venus' signalled critically acclaimed milestones for the band.
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'/. They followed up that same year with a live recording, 'Mission Accomplished... But the Beat Goes On', and 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'.
