Late eighties Punk Pop group fronted by Wendy James
This is the punk meets pop group of the late eighties who shot to fame with their first release 'tell that girl to shut up' which was quickly followed up by their 2nd single release 'I want your love' which was their first top 10 hit when it plateaued at number 5 in the UK chart in 1988.
Their highest UK chart hit was 'baby I don't care' which got to number 3 in 1989.
The band were fronted by the gorgeous blond bombshell Wendy James, who quickly became known for her sexy and pouting lead singing role with most of her performances done scantily clad and accompanied by a good dose of provocative high energy dancing.
Brittany Spears and Christine Aguilera eat your hearts out, well in the beginning anyway.
The band went on to release 3 albums in total
- Pop Art
- Little Magnets Versus The Bubble Of Babble
The first 2 albums stuck closely to the punk meets pop theme and were highly successful. The third album was a bit of a departure from their normal theme and proved to be the last album they would make together.
Transvision Vamp still has a cult following to this day and there are plenty of websites dedicated to the group, so if you can't get enough of them here get your Google fingers clicking on the links below.

Three reasons to love Transvision Vamp
Reason number 1 Wendy James, the gorgeous front of Transvision Vamp who brought vitality and energy to the lead singing role.
Reason number 2 The music, the underlying beat and raw energy of their music reaches into the soul and generates that good to be alive feeling, particularly if you like the raw energy and grunt of punk packaged into a pop music wrapper.
Reason number 3 Longevity, the music has stood the test of time, getting on for nearly 2 decades later it is still widely listened to due to its cult status and loyal fan base. Proving to be very durable and at least as good if not better than a lot of new pop music being released today.
