After forty years of Girlschool, Renaissance Records is proud to present the reissue of albums Demolition, Hit and Run, Screaming Blue Murder and Play Dirty onto Deluxe packaged 180 gram vinyl. Girlschool hit the British Heavy Metal scene back in 1978 and wasn’t afraid of the male dominated British metal community. They soon released their debut album, Demolition in 1980. The album reached number twenty eight in the UK Albums Chart following the rise of the New Wave of British Heavy metal phenomenon.
Girlschool quickly earned the respect from fellow musicians and fans of the British heavy metal scene with their good musicianship and aggressive but fun loving attitude. They we’re heavily involved in working with Motorhead and collaborated on a couple of songs including the song ‘Please Don’t Touch Me’ for Motorhead’s EP, St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.
The band enjoyed heavy media exposure and commercial success in the UK in the 1980’s. They developed a cult following and have become an inspiration for many female rock musicians.
All four Girlschool albums are set for official release on May 1st.
