Is this the worst band of the Eighties?

Seriously. The look. The lyrics. The sound. That dreadful, reedy, off pitch voice. Wendy James’ rather obvious appeal notwithstanding, can anyone name a worse band from the Eighties than Transvision Vamp? It’s even worse than I remembered!


  1. ‘Baby I Don’t Care’, for one.

    And given that the Eighties managed to spawn Sigue Sigue Sputnik, calling Transvision Vamp the worst band of the decade is oddly perverse.

  2. You mean this? Sorry. Wendy James’ undeniable appeal aside, no way,

    And hey, Sigue Sigue Sputnik were funny. You’ll be dissing Daisy Chainsaw next!

  3. Baby I Don’t Care is a great pop song.

    Just watching some Sigue Sigue Sputnik- its rather like a saner version of Alien Sex Fiend. Not too bad musically although totally over the top hair and clothes and profoundly silly…

  4. Are you mad ? Some of the best music of the century! I have Pop Art & Velveteen playing on the ipod on my desk as I type, and I’m loving it!
