Undoubtedly the most awesome band ever, The Revillos came from Glasgow Scotland in 1979 and bridged the punk, retro and pop genres to form the perfect rock band. FYI, Singers Faye Fife and Eugene Reynolds (originally of equally amazing Rezillos) are still doing their twangy rock thing in 2009 playing the occasional Rezillos show and writing some new songs. And drummer Rocky Rhythm has a new tell all autobiography out! I saw The Rezillos played their 30th anniversary tour in New Jersey a few years ago and it was a joy to behold. Now if only The Revillos can play NYC (they havent since 1981 when I first heard them interviewed on WNYU radio and became an instant fan) then I can die happy.
Check out the videos below, and at bottom is a BBC documentary about Faye and Eugene and their experiences fronting both Rezillos and Revillos.
