Transvision Vamp were a genuine international pop supernova of the late 80s. Fronted by the irrepressible Wendy James - pop's very own Halo Jones - whose bad-girl charms were impossible to ignore, and informed by the musical vision of Nick Christian Sayer, their sound and look was a kaleidoscopic whirl of chunky guitar riffs, incandescent pop thrills, razor sharp choral hooks, and vivid comic-book imagery.
They crashed the charts like a rock and roll wrecking ball, bagging Gold and Platinum-selling albums in a brief but spectacular reign. Debut album Pop Art was certified Gold, and in 1989, "Baby I Don't Care" hit # 3 in the singles chart, and the accompanying album Velveteen reached # 1, certified Platinum.
Follow-up chart singles "The Only One", "Landslide Of Love" and "Born To Be Sold" kept the album in the charts for six months.
