February 23 street date. 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 50's and 60's rock 'n' roll covers at their live shows, they 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:. The package also includes all the B-sides and rarities from the band’'s first stint as The Rezillos between 1977 and 1979.
