Performer Notes
  • The Rezillos' first album, 1978's Can't Stand the Rezillos, is a high-water mark for punk rock. The humor, the energy, and the songs lift it above the posers and wannabes who littered the scene like trash after a free festival. The band melded the toughness of rockabilly, the flash of '60s pop, and the unchained energy of punk to come up with a singular sound and some classic songs. "(My Baby Does) Good Sculptures" and "Top of the Pops" are two fine examples of how great the band is and the rest of the album isn't far behind. This collection, 2018's Flying Saucer Attack: The Complete Recordings 1977-1979, has the classic Can't Stand the Rezillos; Mission Accomplished...But the Beat Goes On, the follow-up live album from 1979 that captures a rough-and-ready show recorded in Glasgow; and a collection of singles, alternate versions, and two tracks that were cut from the live album. The band's output was already gathered up on 1993's Can't Stand the Rezillos: The (Almost) Complete Rezillos reissue, but this one is (Totally) Complete. The addition of 7" versions of tracks from the record is nice, the live tracks are fun (especially the ripping take on "Flying Saucer Attack"), and the two alternative versions, especially the stripped-down and punchy "(My Baby Does) Good Sculptures," are a great addition. The improved sound, the snappy packaging, and the extra tracks make this a necessary upgrade from the older collection. ~ Tim Sendra
