About The Revillos

Following the same template of fast, witty rock & roll informed by mid-'60s pop and late-'70s punk as their previous band the Rezillos, the Revillos were formed in March 1979 by the group's vocalists, Eugene Reynolds (b. Alan Forbes) and Fay Fife (b. Sheilagh Hynde, Scotland). Hi Fi Harris (guitar), Rocky Rhythm (drums), and three backing singers -- Jane White, Jane Brown and Tricia Bryce -- completed the band's original lineup, but within months the latter trio had been replaced by Babs and Cherie Revette. The Revillos made their debut with the 1979 single "Where's the Boy for Me," but although this exciting performance recalled the best of the previous band, it failed to emulate their success. Internal friction undermined the unit's undoubted potential -- guitarists, bass players, and singers were replaced with regularity as core members Reynolds, Fife, and Rhythm pursued their uncompromising vision. An album, Rev-Up, successfully captured the Revillos' pumped-up mixture of girl group, beat, and science fiction, but Dindisc Records were uphappy with the sales figures and soon dropped the band. Undeterred, the band inaugurated Superville Records for their second album, 1982's Attack!, and they embarked on two grueling tours of the U.S.A. and Canada, which they financed themselves. However, an anticipated record deal failed to materialize and this ebullient act later disintegrated. The Revillos briefly re-formed in the mid-'90s to tour Japan, and three live albums were released between 1995 and 1998. In 2003, Reynolds and Fife returned to the studio to cut a third Revillos album, Jungle of Eyes. No new releases have emerged since, though in 2015 Reynolds and Fife revived the Rezillos for an international tour and a new album, Zero. ~ Rovi Staff
