In 1976, The Rezillos formed during the Punk Wave. Hailing from Scotland, they delivered a different kind of punk and in the travel, gained a solid fan base that extended to the US. With music that was more campy rather than socially-minded and angry, Rezillos subscribed to The B-52s and Cramps approaches. With two Rezillos albums in their original era release, The Rezillos dissolved into The Revillos for a broader collection of albums, EPs, and singles that existed through the middle ’80s.

On April 24, Cherry Red UK will issue a 6CD Boxed set featuring music from The Revillos-era of the famed band. With the band’s two DinDisc issues, Rev Up (1980), and the withdrawn 1982 release of Attack!, and a collection of four Live sets, two of which were released earlier (Alive And On Fire In Japan– 1994, Totally Alive – 1998), and a third CD with two shows, Live! Colchester Institute – May of 1981 and New York City Ritz, both previously unreleased). Each of the two studio albums will include bonus tracks along with Live BBC tracks. The Attack! album is here as both the withdrawn 1982 version and the later expanded reissue from 2002. The 6CD Box will be called Stratoplay: The Box Set.

The box will be complemented with a nicely packed booklet with sleeve notes, and photos. The albums will feature original artwork on the sleeve jackets.
