The Runaways – Flaming Schoolgirls

Originally released in 1980, this Kim Fowley-produced collection of studio outtakes and live cuts came a year after the split. Patched up it may be?there’s good reason why covers of “Strawberry Fields” and “Here Comes The Sun” had remained in the vaults?there’s nevertheless much hair-shaking to be had with the live bubblegumfuzz of Joan Jett’s “C’mon” and “Blackmail”‘s strutting pop-punk, while “Hollywood Cruisin'” unashamedly hams up Fowley’s early ‘jailbait-Ramones’ hype. More than just a curio, though.
