GIRLSCHOOL - Screaming Blue Murder 12”
(1982, U.K., Mercury)
I have been getting a lot of mileage out of Girlschool’s 3rd album lately. It’s more straight up heavy rock and roll and less Motörmetal, but this is still fucking great. Lots of memorable riffs and tracks. A couple songs have a cool, noticeable Runaways vibe. Unfortunately, I have the Mercury version where their cover of “Tush” shows up again…this is the only song on the first 3 albums that I will consistently skip. This version also has the songs in a different order compared to the European pressing. I will have to remedy this and get a Bronze pressing. Either way, amazing record.
