The Rezillos - Top Of The Pops


On this date in 1978, The Rezillos released their third single, "Top Of The Pops". It was backed by "20,000 Rezillos Under The Sea". The A side appeared on their debut album, Can't Stand The Rezillos. The B side was a non-LP track. The single reached the #17 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The Edinburgh, Scotland punk/new wave band disbanded in 1978. Eugene Reynolds and Faye Fife re-formed under the name The Revillos (due to contractual obligations, they could not use the name "Rezillos"). Jo Callis and Simon Templar formed Shake. Not long afterwards, Jo Callis would join The Human League. The Rezillos have re-formed since.
