"Reissue of our classic Revillos! compilation. Twenty track CD compilation of rare and unreleased gems from The Revillos! archives including the original versions of their first two singles 'Wheres The Boy For Me' and 'Motorbike Beat'. Great fold-out booklet with loads of rare photos and Revealing facts too! After the blow out of the Rezillos, Sire (their label) agreed to let Eugene and Fay out of their contract on the condition that they didn't use the 'Rezillos' name. So, Eugene came up with a new name - The Revillos! Virgin Records were interested enough to fund a new label specifically for the band (Snatzo) which operated under Virgin's DinDisc subsidiary. The deal was signed in June 1979 and there was a lot of media interest. Eugene Reynolds, Fay Fife, and Rocky Rhythm formed the core of the Revillos! The first incarnation of the band featured original Rezillo-member Hi Fi Harris on guitar, Felix on bass, and Babs and Cherie on backing vocals. This line-up recorded the early singles 'Where's The Boy For Me?', 'Motorbike Beat', and 'Scuba Scuba'. 'Rocky Rhythm' is credited as 'Robo Rhythm' on the first two singles, and the backing vocal credit on 'Motorbike Beat' goes to The Revettes (Jane White, Jane Brown, Tricia Bryce)."
