Biographie

Transvision Vamp was a popular British alternative rock group. Formed in 1986 by Nick Christian Sayer and Wendy James the band enjoyed chart success in the late 1980s. James, the lead singer and focal-point of the group, attracted media attention with her sexually-charged and rebellious image.
The band’s original lineup was James, Sayer, Dave Parsons (bass), Tex Axile (keyboards) and Pol Burton (drums). Parsons and Axile had both been in punk bands prior to joining the band - Parsons in The Partisans, and Axile in various bands, most notably The Moors Murderers and X-Ray Spex offshoot Agent Orange.

The band were signed by MCA in December 1986 and released their first single « Revolution Baby » the following year.It was considered a flop by their label so they released a cover single of the Holly and the Italians’ song « Tell That Girl to Shut Up » in April 1988, but it only reached number 45 on the UK Singles Chart. A month later the follow-up single « I Want Your Love », with its pop/punk crossover appeal, entered the top 10, and peaked at number 5 in the United Kingdom. Minor success was achieved with 2 further singles, the re-released « Revolution Baby » and « Sister Moon », which reached 30 and 41 respectively on the UK Singles Chart in 1988. The band went on to release the hit album Pop Art in October. It stayed on the album chart for 32 weeks, peaking at number 4.

1989 was the band’s most successful year, with the number 3 hit single « Baby I Don’t Care » and hit album Velveteen, which went entered the UK Albums Chart at #1 and stayed on the chart for 26 weeks.
