The Runaways

Hot-footed down to The Phoenix today with Leigh to watch The Runaways. A superb biopic of a proper girl band. Fuck the Pussycat Dolls, Girls Aloud et al, this is what it was all about…

The film is proof positive that the Americans can make some pretty good films when they get away from their fixation with Hollywood blockbusters and CGI overload.

Here’s a bit of the real McCoy playing Cherry Bomb live in Japan. This scene plays pretty well on the big screen.

After the split Joan Jett decided to go solo and released I Love Rock and Roll, a massive hit worldwide.
