The Bangles: Shepherd's Bush Empire, London

THE FACT that these four LA women played their own instruments was much remarked upon in the Eighties, as was Susanna Hoffs' beauty. But as Atomic Kitten, miming to old Bangles hits, are this year's biggest pop act, we can deduce that their female fans back then couldn't be arsed to learn guitar chords.
