The Rezillos’ 40th Anniversary Tour kicks off at Caerphilly Workmen’s Hall on Thursday, April 7, 7.30pm. The Edinburgh punk legends are one of the great live experiences and with original members Faye Fife, Eugene Reynolds and Angel Paterson leading a quirky quintet fans can look forward to an electric entertainment experience.
Shows over the recent years have not diminished in their infinite levels of energy-and, anyone who enjoys their high octane rock will not be disappointed-and new er members Chris Agnew (bass) and Jim Brady (guitar) also play important roles. The Rezillos can rouse the masses and anthems such as Top of the Pops, (My baby does) good Sculptures, I can’t stand my Baby and Destination Venus nestle alongside new numbers from 2015 album Zero. The dynamic duo of Fife and Reynolds lead from the front with their tongue in cheek, gung ho gusto and God bless them!

Bankrupt Pug commence the evening with a short semi-accoustic set kick off at 8pm. The ante is then upped as The Guardians of Public Morality deliver their female-fronted feisty pop punk fusion (with ex-Doc Savage founder Pete Sixx on lead guitar). The Rezill,os then take to the stage and their colourful mix of crazy choreography and power pop will leave an indelible imprint on the punters present. It is also impossible to leave a Rezillos gig without a joyous feeling!

This is the first date on The Rezillos’ 40th Anniversary Tour so it’s a bonus that Caerphilly Workmen’s Hall kicks off proceedings. Well done to everyone at this Caerphilly outlet because this venue is a registered charity that operates courtesy of good spirited and hard working volunteers.

This concert is one of many on the horizon at Caerphilly Workmen’s Hall so keep your eyes peeled for further details. However, for now enjoy the soaring sounds of seventies sonics! Tickets are £15 plus a £1 online booking fee via or call 07512 237983.
