The Rezillos

Can't Stand The Rezillos was a pretty crucial record in 1978, a banner year which also marked the release of This Is The Modern World by the Jam and This Year's Model by Elvis Costello. Each of those records was white hot.

But the Rezillos were unique -- Scottish and cartoonish, but tough as hell too.
In 1978, on German Televison, right up there with the Clash "Straight To Hell" on Saturday Night -- scorching.


And they're still banging it -- Rezillos 2006

Oh hell, one more -- "Destination Venus" Dig that Wilma dress, and the lead singer dude -- doesn't he look just like Conan O'Brien in this?
