Adelaide we know you love your Old School rock and we heard your calls. So by popular demand, the legendary GIRLSCHOOL are now heading to Adelaide to hit the Enigma Bar on Sunday 30 June.
GIRLSCHOOL are a British rock band that formed in the new wave of British heavy metal scene in 1978, frequently associated with contemporaries Motörhead. They are the longest-running all-female rock band, still active after almost forty years. Formed from a school band called Painted Lady, GIRLSCHOOL enjoyed strong media exposure and commercial success in the UK in the early 1980s with three albums of ‘punk-tinged metal’ and a few singles, that placed them up there with the legends of NWOBHM.
In the 1990s and 2000s, GIRLSCHOOL focused on shows and tours and made few studio albums. During their career they travelled the world, playing in many rock and metal festivals and co-headlining with or supporting important hard rock and heavy metal bands. They maintain a worldwide cult following and are an inspiration for many female rock musicians. Three original members, Kim McAuliffe, Enid Williams and Denise Dufort—are still in the band, with long time axe wielder Jackie Chambers on guitar.
We’ll never have Motorhead again, but we can have their mates.
