Sigue Sigue Sputnik were a British new wave band formed in 1982 by former Generation X bassist Tony James. The band had three UK top 40 hit singles, including the songs "Love Missile F1-11" and "21st Century Boy". The band was formed by Tony James, ex-bassist of the defunct Gen X, and Neal X (Whitmore), who recruited singer Martin Degville. Degville was a clothes designer and supplied the band's wardrobe, and YaYa, the store where he worked, became the band's base.

Dress for Excess, 1989.

Sigue Sigue Sputnik Format: Vinyl. Supercrook Blues" continues the usual Sputnik party mode and owes nods to Carl Perkins "dancing in my blue suede shoes," and Little Richard: "Awopbopaloobop". The mock news item samples and some hot guitar work boost this song. Rio Rocks!" about the decadent night life of Rio de Janeiro, ratchets the rhythm up a notch, with a host of people singing "Day-O!" a la Harry Belafonte. However, that album had one song which was stronger than any song on "Dress For Excess" - "Massive Retaliation. With the borrowed melody of Beethoven's "Fifth Symphony", stabbing bass and heavy head-bobbing beats, this is the song you would want to listen to loudly while driving slowly down the street.
