Description

  • After Scotland’s finest punk hit combo The Rezillos splintered at the end of 1978, singers Fay Fife and Eugene Reynolds continued their mission for melding kitsch 60s pop with new wave energy via their new band THE REVILLOS!
  • Signing to DinDisc, THE REVILLOS enjoyed success with singles like ‘Motorbike Beat’ and debut album REV UP! in 1980. But after a year or so, they parted company with the label and their second album ATTACK! was issued on Scottish independent label Superville (sadly, taken from the wrong mix of the LP).
  • After a one-off 45 for Aura, a new-look REVILLOS signed to EMI, leading to two glossy yet still quirky pop singles in 1983/84, ‘Bitten By A Love Bug’ and ‘Midnight’. Thereafter, THE REVILLOS went into hibernation but Eugene and Fay have regularly dusted them down for revivals, with various studio and live offerings across the 1990s and 2000s.
  • Compiled with the full involvement of Eugene and Fay, STRATOPLAY is THE REVILLOS’ most comprehensive retrospective to date. Both of their original studio albums are included with all the relevant non-album A- and B-sides – and both mixes of Attack! are presented for total completeness.
  • In addition to various BBC radio sessions, the band’s later singles for Aura and EMI are joined by later live and studio recordings from the 1990s, while Disc 6 combines two previously unissued, lo-fi recordings of the band in their early 80s heyday, captured on stage in two contrasting settings: Colchester Institute and the New York City Ritz.
  • Sleeve-notes by Scottish journalist Tim Barr (with contributions from Eugene and Fay) and colourful packaging which replicates all the original album artwork make this the ultimate tribute to a landmark band.
