    Comment time!


  2. Completely random comment as I've just got round to poking around in your blog (for want of a better phrase!). Thanks for all you do here - it's been good to catch up with a lot of stuff that I'd forgotten from years past...

    Keep up the good work!

  3. jeffen's my new hero. thank you for reviving so many college radio dj'ing memories. i.e., "Cool Jerk... a walking talking deep freeze; I'm a refrigerator baby!"

  4. What an incredible series of posts of all things Rezillos. Saw them a ton of times back in the day when I still lived in Scotland and they were always "ON" and hilarious - Faye's daft dancing and Eugene doing the puppet jerk motions before they were invented!

    I was managing a record shop in Paisley in the mid-70s and remember the Rezillos gig well (we also were responsible for promoting it). Paisley was getting incredible bands for a while because Glasgow had banned all punk concerts. (Paisley is just outside Glasgow)

    The Silver Thread, as I remember it, was basically just a room and the bands set up at the far end. It was boisterous to say the least and the concerts came thick and fast for a few months until Glasgow lifted the ban.

    I found a copy of the Silver Thread boot a while ago and couldn't believe it even existed! The quality wasn't too hot so I'm downloading the one here in the hopes it's better. Regardless, it's a historical document!

    Racking my brains for all the bands I saw at the Silver Thread. Suffice to say it was a golden period. Paisley never had it so good!

    I'd like to put up some of this stuff on my blog and, of course, credit it to you. Is that ok?

    Would also like to link your blog on mine. Is that also ok? Would love it if you would link mine but one is not contigent on the other. Happy to link you regardless.

    My blog is at:

    Let me know if you're missing any Rezillos - I have a stack of their singles somewhere!

    Great stuff!
