Punk Girls

Reissue of sinewy garage-punk ace, originally released on Sympathy For The Record Industry in 1997 (20 fucking years ago!). It’s one of the most energising and unashamedly primitivist salvos in the Golightly/Childish canon – no mean feat – channelling Liliput and X Ray Spex on a clutch of Childish originals plus super-sloppy/snotty covers of ‘Teenage Kicks’, the Ramones’ ‘Pinhead’, Plastik Bertrand’s ‘Ca Plane Pour Moi’, an incredulous re-write of The Beatles on ‘Don’t Wanna Hold Your Hand’, etc etc.. Billy produces and plays stingray guitar, backed up by Tub and Bruce – it’s a classic Headcoats demolition job - but this record belongs to Holly, Ludella, Kyra and Debbie, who all take turns on vocals, and all boss it. Personal favourites? Where do you start? Maybe their take on The Strangeloves’ Cara-Lin, rendered in best gone-girl-group tradition, or their effortless roughing up of The Lurkers’ ‘Shadow’. Listening to this on a grey Tuesday afternoon you find yourself wondering why you bother listening to anything else.
