Transvision Vamp was a British alternative rock group popular in the late 80s. The line up consisted of Nick Christian Slayer, Wendy James, Dave Parsons (went on to join Bush), Tex Axile (formally of X-Ray Spex) and Pol Burton. Wendy James is the most recognisable member with her distinctively raspy vocals, blonde bombshell sexuality and seductive performances.
The band had low charting success until the release of I Want Your Love which hit #5 on the UK singles chart in 1988. The band later released the album Pop Art which stayed on the charts for a total of 32 weeks.
In 1989, Transvision Vamp released Velveteen which featured their best hit, Baby I Don’t Care.
In the 90s, record label disputes about the next slated release Little Magnets Versus the Bubble of Babble and rumblings of a potential break up within the band pretty much put an end to the group. They officially called it quits in 1992.
Wendy James is still active in the music industry as an independent, unsigned artist.
