The Rezillos - Destination Venus


On this date in 1978, The Rezillos released their fourth single, "Destination Venus". It was backed by "Mystery Action". Both tracks appeared on their second album, Mission Accomplished...But The Beat Goes On, but in live form. Both tracks in studio form were included on a later retrospective called Can't Stand The Rezillos: The (Almost) Complete Rezillos. The single reached the #43 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.
