Girls With Guitars Know Why!


A collection of guitar-wielding all-girl bands, drop-dead female frat rock, garage girls and axe-centric she-pop from the 60s. 14 hot nuggets, each one hand-picked with vinyl lovers in mind.Features a bevy of genuine all-girl bands ? namely Goldie & the Gingerbreads from the environs of New York; the Debutantes from Detroit; Florida?s the Belles; the Rums & Coke and Girls Take Over, both from Wisconsin; and Ace favourites She from California, all of whom give their male counterparts a good run for their money. The Belles, incidentally, released only one record ? a killer rendition of Them?s ?Gloria?, gender-switched as ?Melvin? ? before drifting apart, never dreaming that copies of the disc would one day change hands for $500 a pop.Some of the other girls receive help from male colleagues. Glenda Collins, for example, is backed by producer Joe Meek?s favoured house band the Outlaws featuring guitarist Richie Blackmore; Merseyside ex-pat Sandy Edmonds is accompanied by the Pleazers, New Zealand?s answer to the Pretty Things; and teenage trio the Chymes are supported by the Turtles.Pressed on 180g transparent violet vinyl, with a swanky inner bag sporting a fact-filled 4,000-word track commentary and an array of rare photos.Compilation and note by Mick Patrick.
