Girlschool are a British metal group who started out in the late 70's, they even had a Top 5 UK album in 1981! After a few lineup changes they attempted to break the US market with their 1985 LP Running Wild (much maligned by fans, and of course recommeded by me!). It didn't work. The girls are still playing live and have some live dates, so Google them!
Here's a few tracks from their last two major albums Nightmare At Maple Cross (1986) and Take A Bite (1988); Too Hot To Handle; Fox On The Run; Play With Fire; Up All Night.
