Snap Scene: Girlschool, The Croxton, Melbourne 29th June 2019

British heavy metal legends Girlschool performed at The Croxton in Melbourne on Saturday 29 June 2019 as part of their first ever Australian Tour. Girlschool is the world’s longest-running all-female rock band, still active after more than 40 years – they formed in 1978 during the new wave of British heavy metal scene (NWOBHM).

Three original members are still in the band: Kim McAuliffe on lead vocals and guitar, Enid Williams on bass, and Denise Dufort on drums, along with long-serving guitarist Jackie Chambers. Girlchool is frequently associated with their contemporaries Motörhead, and just like The Runaways before them, they’re seen as a band that helped pave the way to the presence of women in rock music.
