The Bangles: Yesterday and Today

Edwin Pouncey, Sounds, 2 February 1985

THE 'HOUSE full' sign was proudly on display outside Boston's Paradise Theatre, a local haunt that had, so I was informed, fallen from favour by the followers of the city's music scene as a place to congregate. Tonight, however, The Paradise had been granted a reprieve as it played host to The Bangles from LA, an all-girl group comprising Susanna Hoffs vox/rhythm guitar, Vikki Peterson vox/lead guitar, sister Debbi Peterson drummer/vox and former Runaway Michael Steele bass guitar/vox.
