The Rezillos w/ Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds and Fashionism

The Rezillos new album “ZERO”, will be released on March 10, 2015 via Metropolis Records, and will be their first full length release since their seminal album "Can't Stand the Rezillos".

The Rezillos
The Rezillos are a punk/new wave band formed in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1976. Although emerging at the same time as other bands in the punk rock movement, the Rezillos did not share the nihilism or social commentary of their contemporaries, but instead took a more light-hearted approach to their songs, preferring to describe themselves at the time as "a New Wave beat group". Their songs are heavily influenced by 1950s rock and roll, 1960s English beat music and garage rock, as well as early 1970s glam rock with recurring lyrical themes of science fiction and B movies - influences that mirrored those of US bands The Cramps and the B-52s (who were starting out at the same time).

Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds
Kid Congo Powers’s smoky blues-punk stylings have shown up on albums from The Cramps, The Gun Club, and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. With his solo project, Powers loses none of the intensity that his name suggests.
