Girlschool: Coast to Coast, Baltimore MD

J.D. Considine, Musician, August 1982

FROM A DISTANCE, Girlschool looks pretty much like any other heavy rock group — long hair, Marshall stacks, denim and leathers. But it doesn't take long for even the most slow-witted concertgoer to notice that some of that leather is in the form of skirts, for the members of Girlschool are all women.
