The Rezillos

So, last week, in the midst of the Nor'Easter that was the "dirty sanchez" left by Ma Nature on the East Coast, I ventured out and saw The Rezillos.

Yep- The Rezillos (file under late 70's Scottish Punk/New Wave/Bizarro) relanded their flying saucer and put on a fine show. The only original members I spied were Eugene Reynolds and Fay Fife (resplendent in some sort of leather /vinyl mishegas. ). However, the other band folk were spot on- and I wuz watching the bass player all note to make sure he hit all the great runs that are on those toons.

They played all the hits: "Somebody's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In", "It Gets Me", "My Baby Loves Good Sculptures" and a head spinning version of Ike and Tina's "River Deep/Mountain High".

A smashing good high energy performance, considering a less than full house (thanks to the fact that 1/2 of Long Island was still without power).

They're touring the USA this month- so catch em when they come to yer town!
