A while ago I was researching garage bands of the 60s and I've seen that the female bands out numbered the male bands. Especially over in Europe. the northern areas like Denmark, Sweeden and Finland had a lot. One I took a liking to was a band called the Butterflies from Roskilde Denmark. I found a site www.pigegruppen-butterflies.tk the site is in Dansk, so if you don't know Dansk, you can copy and paste onto Google translator. I got tired of it so I took a Dansk course online and I know enough now to get by.
I also saw on amazon.com some comp CDs Girls in the Garage and there's a ton of good songs on them. A lot of these ladies didn't make it into the mainstream and imagine if they did. The closest was The Pleasure Seekers, featuring Miss Suzy Quatro. They got to tour with the Who, Amboy Dukes and Herman's Hermits. its sad because a lot of the record industry was male dominated and they never gave these ladies a real chance. Plus some of them had parents who wouldn't sign the release papers. back then, especially in America, Ladies were expected to get married after graduating high school, have babies and settle down and a lot of parents and boyfriends didn't want their girl playing rock and roll , touring the world.
here's a link to Girls in The garage V.A. If it don't pop up the look it up. I figure Id share this with everyone and get some conversation going
