More Info

Ten genuine all-girl bands join forces with similar 60s females of the species on this new volume in our ear-grabbing “Girls With Guitars” series, providing further confirmation that girls can do what the guys do.

The CD kicks off in great style with three of the best tracks to feature in the series so far: the Belles’ ‘Melvin’, a great gender-switched version of Van Morrison’s ‘Gloria’; a rendering of John Lee Hooker’s ‘Dimples’ by the Missfits; and Girls Take Over’s uninhibited proto-punk treatment of Tommy Tucker’s ‘Hi Heel Sneakers’. The Missfits, a young five-piece from Blackpool with a taste for R&B, also tackle Bo Diddley’s ‘You Can’t Judge A Book By The Cover’ and ‘Chuck Berry’s ‘I’m Talking About You’; all three of their tracks are previously unreleased.

For the record, lest anyone’s keeping tally, the other featured guitar-toting all-girl bands are She, Goldie & the Gingerbreads, the Debutantes, the Liverbirds, the Beat-Chics, the Ace Of Cups and the Mysteries. Elsewhere, Debbie Williams sings lead with the all- male Unwritten Law, ballsy-voiced Joyce Harris is backed by Texas bar band the Daylighters, the teenage Chymes trio are accompanied by the un-billed Turtles and, well, you get the picture.
