The Runaways – The Runaways CD (Cherry Red)
Thirty-nine years on from it’s original release, here we have the CD version of this critically acclaimed debut album. Those familiar with The Runaways already know the garage rock power these five young ladies created, the aura they shaped, the names they made for themselves, but for those who don’t it’s an essential part of rock history. Ten songs of streetwise lyrical content, dirty riffs and memorable choruses, all backed by beautiful looks – what more could you really want from a band? The carefree buzz of ‘Cherry Bomb’, the anthemic ‘Thunder’, and the teen angst of ‘American Nights’ stand prominent as punk rock classics and sound as ruckus today as they did in the 70s. Nothing fancy here, just straight-ahead, solid music. Liner notes, lyrics, and a sixteen-page booklet make it an essential purchase even if you already own the vinyl. Mark Freebase
