The Rezillos smashed into the rock scene through a shared love of Sixties Garage Rock and the Spector-esque Girl Group glam of The Ronettes and the Shangri Las. The Rezillos found themselves inadvertently caught up in the Punk or New Wave movement, if only because they didn't proscribe to fifteen minute slabs of tedious progressive rock, shunning it in favour of three minute sparkling pop gems which would eventually be fully realised in their inimitable sound and vision. Their debt 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.

Musically, The Rezillos are truly influential to the so-called neo-punk scene as some of the best musicians that recorded and performed during that era. Their music is, upon inspection, «poppy,» but at the same time quintessentially loud, fast rock and roll that eschews the mainstream. It's upbeat, while at the same time showing a dark side to their songs.

Having released several new singles in their 21st Century guise, 2015 saw the long-awaited release of a new studio album, “Zero” to rave reviews. And 2018 sees the 40th anniversary of the release of their debut album with the band touring alongside a re-released and remastered double CD package that also combines with their ”Mission Accomplished” live album and a host of their early recordings and full original singles. This double CD set is entitled “Flying Saucer Attack”

This year the Rezillos play several major festivals both in Europe and further afield.

Their aim? To 'Rock their market share of the Planet'.
