The Rezillos are a punk/new wave band, who formed in Edinburgh in 1976 and still play gigs around the world in a re-formed line-up. Although frequently aligned with the punk movement, the Rezillos’ (later known as the Revillos) irreverent glam rock image and affection for campy girl-group iconography, set them distinctly apart from their peers. They are probably best known outside of the UK for their cover version of the song “Somebody’s Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In Tonight“. The song was written by Jeremy Spencer and originally recorded by Fleetwood Mac, who released it in 1969 as the b-side of “Man of the World” — credited to Earl Vince and the Valiants. Since The Rezillos recorded it, the song has been covered by numerous punk bands, including Youth Brigade and Murphy’s Law.

The band originally consisted of Eugene Reynolds (real name:Alan Forbes), vocals; Fay Fife (born Sheilagh Hynde), vocals; Jo Callis, guitar; William Mysterious (born Alastair Donaldson), saxophone; Angel Patterson (born Alistair Patterson), drums; Hi-Fi Harris, guitar; Dr D.K. Smythe. bass guitar, and Gale Warning (Gail Jamieson), backing vocals. The Rezillos’ early live repertoire included versions of songs originally recorded by Sweet, Screaming Lord Sutch, Fleetwood Mac (in the guise of Earl Vince and the Valiants) and the Dave Clark Five.

“Top Of The Pops” is a single by Punk band The Rezillos released on Sire Records in 1978.
