Flamin’ Schoolgirls - Runaways

Flamin’ Schoolgirls
Critically acclaimed but never receiving their due, The Runaways were formed in Hollywood in 1975, with the help of music svengali / producer Kim Fowley, becoming the first all female Rock ‘N’ Roll band to actually make an impression on the record buying public and musicians alike – although more so now than then! The Runaways were originally hailed as a manufactured band due to Fowley’s involvement, however, their eponymous debut album soon proved their worth as musicians. With Joan Jett on rhythm guitar, Sandy West on drums, Lita Ford on lead guitar, Jackie Fox on bass and Cherie Currie on lead vocals, “The Runaways” (1976) contained tracks such as the snarling “Cherry Bomb” and the brilliant “American Nights” and prove The Runaways rocked with the best of them – and with an average age of 16!! Respected in their day by bands such as Blondie and The Ramones, and now cited as a major influence by bands such as Courtney Love, Bikini Kill, L7, The Donnas and Babes In Toyland - The Runaways time has finally come! Originally released on vinyl by Cherry Red in 1980, due to the popularity of our recent Runaways re-issues, and demand from the public, “Flamin’ Schoolgirls” will now be re-issued on CD for the first time!
