The second single from the band's debut album Pop Art, was a
cover of a song recorded by American pop punk band Holly and the
Italians. It was written by the lead singer and guitarist Holly Beth
Vincent. It wasn't a hit for the band and it also just missed out on a
top 40 placing for Transvision Vamp, peaking at #45 in the UK.
Interestingly, the B-side to Tell That Girl To Shut Up featured a track called God Save The Royalties, which was a reversed mix of the song Psychosonic Cindy that featured on the Pop Art
The album was more successful than the singles, reaching #4 in the UK and
#13 in Australia. Three other singles were released from the album; The lead single Revolution Baby (this originally stalled at #77 in the UK charts, but a reissue reached #30), I Want Your Love (#5) and Sister Moon (#41).
The band's biggest hit of the 80s (and their entire career) was Baby I Don't Care which reached #3 in the UK, and was the lead single from the second album Velveteen.
Vamp disbanded in February 1992 with Wendy James launching her solo
career in 1993.
