The Rezillos are a punk/new wave formed in Edinburgh in 1976. Although emerging at the same time as other bands in the punk rock movement, the Rezillos did not share the nihilism or social commentary of their contemporaries, but instead took a more light-hearted approach to their songs, preferring to describe themselves at the time as "a new wave beat group". Their songs are heavily influenced by 1950s Rock and roll, 1960s English beat music and garage rock, early 1970s Glam Rock , and recurring lyrical themes of Sci-Fi B movies; their influences mirrored those of US bands the Cramps and the B52s, who were starting out at the same time. The Rezillos' biggest hit in their home country was the UK Top 20 single "Top of the Pops" in 1978, but they are best known outside the UK for their cover "Somebody's Gonna Get their Head Kicked in Tonight"
All those who've heard the latest album "Zero" know the band are still as good as ever, and those that have seen them know it's always an entertaining night.
