As The Runaways are to American rock 'n' roll, Girlschool is to UK rock 'n' roll, the most famous all-female British hard rock export. The group first emerged in the late ‘70s as part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement and are closely associated with Motörhead, with whom they shared the hit single "Please Don't Touch." In December 1978 they released their first single "Take It All Away" on the independent City Records label which led to interest from Motorhead's management and a support slot on the Overkill tour in the spring of 1979. The band signed to Bronze Records, which was set up by Uriah Heep producer Gerry Bron, and in Spring 1980 they released their debut Demolition which was produced by the legendary Vic Maile (who worked on the Who's Live at Leeds and Motorhead's Ace of Spades) and featured their stellar cover of The Gun's "Race with the Devil." A support slot with Uriah Heep on their 10th anniversary tour in February 1980 and then a tour with Black Sabbath in May 1980 and European tours followed. 2LP edition with bonus tracks.
