Prior to Joan Jett, Patti Smith or Courtney Love, there were the girls in the garage. Like their male counterparts had discovered, being in a band was not only cool and alluring, it was sexual and ultimately political. The garage band was a medium that enabled their voices to be heard; these girls weren't going to be kept in the kitchen. Like Pebbles did for the boys, Girls In The Garage captures the raw essence of dreams played out through guitars, drums, mics and amplifiers. Prevailing gender roles would be tested as rock'n'roll became someone else's domain: the girls! Features Clair Lane, The Beas, The Liverbirds, Marylin Mattson, Shammy and The Famous Ruis Family, Joy Sisters, The Pleetas, Die Sweetles, What Four, Norma Tracy & The Cinderella Kids, The Birdies, The Loved Ones, Merillee & The Turnabouts, Los Spitfires, Tony & Siegrid, and Judy Carne.
