To be honest I thought GIRLSCHOOL had long since hung up the guitars and flicked the switch to off on the amps but here we are in 2004 and would you believe one of the few, perhaps only, Hard Rockin’ UK all girl bands is back with a new album and you know what it’s the dog’s bollocks. I had reservations at first but with fist in the air, pumping anthems like ‘’Crazy’’ and ‘’ We All Love To (Rock ‘N’ Roll)” and ‘’Never Say Never’’ GIRLSCHOOL are back with a bang.
GIRLSCHOOL still sound decidedly old school Hard Rock, occasionally Punky with a steel hand bag in Metal but veteran Kim McAuliffe (guitar and vocals) has still the wit and attitude to deliver a fine collection of songs. Her voice is remarkably strong and punchy and reminiscent of JOAN JETT.
If you heard GIRLSCHOOL with MOTÖRHEAD all those years ago then you’ll get exactly what is says on the tin. Fifty minutes of rough cut, un-polished, energetic and high spirited Rock n Roll from a band that simply refuse to lie down. (Online November 11, 2004)
