First time on CD for this 1978 UK punk rock classic. Hyperactive tempos, raging guitar, abbreviated pop melodies, goofy and slightly off-kilter lyrics that display a fascination with junk culture and '60s pop - it's all here on Can't Stand the Rezillos. The Glasgow band's only studio album - they work the formula every bit as well as the Ramones did on Rocket to Russia.

"Pretty much the greatest new wave outer space Scottish monster goofball pop combo of all time, and this 1978 Sire release is their debut, swan song and masterpiece. Vocalists Faye Fife and Eugene Patterson were magnificent postmodern creations, hyperkinetic comic book kids made flesh, while the band laid down spastic rhythms on delicious confections like "Top of the Pops" and "I Can't Stand My Baby." What used to be called side two lags a smidge, but the hit to miss ratio leans heavily to hit. It's all silly yet strangely menacing-with the album's final grunted line making it clear that these spacepups are not to be trifled with. (review from Scram Magazine #22)"
FUN HYPERACTIVE EAR CANDY!
