After more than 30 years, Girlschool is the longest lasting, and definitely one of the most respected all-female heavy metal bands ever. Without a doubt, this is largely because Girlschool on their arrival didn’t use gender as a marketing ploy, but let future album classics like ”Demolition” (1980) and ”Hit and run” (1981) speak for themselves. The band’s raw, gritty heavy metal tinted with blues as well as punk is quite capable of holding its own, and to be referred to as ”the female Motörhead” could hardly be described as an insult! In short, Girlschool is one of the most important bands from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and it gives us great pleasure to welcome Kim McAuliffe (vocals/guitar), Enid Williams (bass/vocals), Denise Dufort (drums) and Jackie Chambers (guitar) to SRF 2012.
