Scottish punk and post-punk band, notable for energetic, bright-coloured and abbreviated songs that give voice to a number of junk culture topoi, occasionally drawing on sf. "Flying Saucer Attack" and "2000AD", both on the group's debut album Can't Stand the Rezillos (1978), are characteristically effervescent and disposable. In 1980 they changed their name to "The Revillos", although they have since changed it back. Under each of these names (and occasionally, under both, as with the 1995 album Attack of the Giant Revillos by "The Rezillos") the group has continued, sporadically, to explore its fascination with a deliberately kitsch B-movie sf vibe.
