Cool cover

The only band I've bought because I liked their look without knowing anything about the music (which I never did in my life before, not even as a teenager), The Runaways turned out to be a pleasant surprise. I like all-female bands, maybe because I've always preferred bad, rocking girls to dumb little dolls without a personality, so I was curious to listen to the forefather (or, better, foremother?) of them all. Joan Jett was in it, and I already liked her early outputs with the Blackhearts, as well as her producer work with The Germs, one of my all time favourite punk bands (sporting, btw, another hot female rocker, bassist Lorna Doom). Back to The Runaways: their music wasn't revolutionary or outstandingly technical, nonetheless it still works pretty good as a prototype or female punk rock band. Cherie Currie's vocals are particular, and the lyrics about girls' desire for independence and freedom, while sounding obviously naive today, must have been a revelation for girls back in the mid 70s' (not to talk about the long delirium of "Dead End Justice", featured on their debut LP, with lyrics about, well, runaways, women in prison and reformatories, igniting classic "sexploitation" fantasies). The Tokyo live is probably the most representing product of their short adventure, capturing all their anthems in the live dimension. Well, I'd surely have paid the entrance ticket to see them back in the days, as they were all pretty hot and with the right attitude. Drummer Sandy West passed aways two years ago because of a tumor (RIP).
