“Fly­ing Saucer At­tack: The Com­plete Record­ings 1977-1979 (2CD)” CHERRY RED

Exclaim! - - NEWS -

Fe­bru­ary 23. Formed in 1976 in Ed­in­burgh, Scot­land, John Peel favourites THE REZILLOS were viewed as a punk act sim­ply be­cause they emerged at a spe­cific time in the his­tory of rock. But there was so much more to The Rezillos and their mu­sic. The Rezillos’ mu­sic lacked the ni­hilism and so­cial com­men­tary of many of their coun­ter­parts, re­plac­ing this with an ir­rev­er­ent glam rock im­age and a love of sci­ence fic­tion, B-movie, comic book and campy girl group iconog­ra­phy. Their highly ac­claimed de­but LP, “Can’t Stand The Rezillos” is now avail­able in this col­lectable 2CD digi­pack re­lease, to­gether with their fa­mous live record­ing from the Glas­gow Apollo on 23rd De­cem­ber 1978 - re­leased at the time un­der the name of “Mis­sion Ac­com­plished - But The Beat Goes On:. The pack­age also in­cludes all the B-sides and rar­i­ties from the band’s first stint as The Rezillos be­tween 1977 and 1979.
