got whacked out by that damn flu again as it finally died.... 4th day and im feeling good.
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. Branding themselves a “new wave beat group”, 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 that set them apart from their musical peers.
Initially performing mainly ‘50s and ‘60s rock ‘n’ roll covers at their live shows, Rezillos guitarist and future Human League band member – Jo Callis – began penning their own original songs, and soon after came the release of their highly acclaimed debut LP, Can’t Stand The Rezillos, contained here.
This classic album 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”.
Not only does Flying Saucer Attack contain these two great recordings, but the package also includes all the B-sides and rarities from the band’s first stint as The Rezillos between 1977 and 1979.
Includes the hits ‘(My Baby Does) Good Sculptures’, ‘I Can’t Stand My Baby’, ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’, ‘Destination Venus’, ‘Top of the Pops’, plus many rarities not included on the band’s initial two albums, such as live versions of ‘Flying Saucer Attack’, ‘Twist and Shout’, and alternative versions of ‘(My Baby Does) Good Sculptures’ and ‘Getting Me Down’.
Every song on these discs have been freshly re-mastered especially for this release.

1 of my all time favs from 1981
Rip Rig + Panic were an English post-punk band founded in 1980 who disbanded in 1983.
The band were named after a jazz album of the same name by Roland Kirk.
They were formed by Sean Oliver (bass), Mark Springer (piano, sax, vocals), Gareth Sager (guitar, sax, keyboards, vocals) and Bruce Smith (drums, percussion)—the latter two formerly of The Pop Group)—with singer Neneh Cherry.
Other members included saxophonist Flash (David Wright), singer Andi Oliver, trumpeter David De Fries, and viola-player Sarah Sarhandi.
The group strayed from more conventional post-punk, mixing avant-garde elements with jazz and led by Cherry's innovative pop/soul singing style. Their second album, I Am Cold, included a number of tracks featuring jazz trumpeter Don Cherry (Neneh Cherry's stepfather)
They also appeared with Nico on a BBC Radio session.
God is the debut studio album of post-punk band Rip Rig + Panic, released on 3 September 1981 by Virgin Records.
In 2013, the album was reissued by Cherry Red Records on CD with an additional 6 tracks taken from singles.

Phantasmagoria is the sixth album by the Damned, released by MCA in July 1985.
Special editions were available on white vinyl or picture disc; some versions included a free 12" of their No. 3 hit "Eloise".
After much wrangling, the Damned received a new contract with MCA Records in October 1984 on the strength of the song "Grimly Fiendish",issued as a single the following March.
They recorded the album in Eel Pie Studios between March and June 1985.
It reached No. 11 in the charts, and was the band's highest charting album ever, until the release of Evil Spirits in 2018, which cracked the top-ten at No. 7.
The non-album single "Eloise," (a Barry Ryan cover), released six months later, became a huge UK hit, reaching No. 3.
The Damned centred the entire album around David Vanian's deep voice, giving much of the album a gothic feeling
2009 2 disc expanded edition
The cover image of Susie Bick (future wife of Nick Cave) was taken by photographer Bob Carlos Clarke at Kensal Green Cemetery, Harrow Road
guest musos were
Paul Shepley – additional keyboards
Andy Richards – additional keyboards
Luís Jardim – percussion
Gary Barnacle – saxophone and brass
Steve Nieve – keyboard inspiration

by 1983 the band had reached an impasse.. they recorded 1 more song the CLASSIC somewhere in the world there's a cowboy smiling but success wasnt to be and they split
altho in 2010, 3 of the original members reformed the band and played sell out dates
