Product Description

So you thought the Shangri-Las were a piece of work?! "Destroy That Boy!" - a riot of bodacious all-girl bands, femme frat-rock, axe-backed babes and other similar females of the species from the 1963-1970 timescale - is the eagerly awaited follow-up to Ace's big-selling "Girls With Guitars" set of 2004.

Like its predecessor, the focus is on female bands that played their own instruments: say hello to the Debutantes, What Four, Pivots, Feminine Complex, She Trinity from Canada and Merseyside's very own female Beatles, the Liverbirds. The punky Toni McCann from Australia, Coventry's Beverley Jones and leather-lunged Sharon Tandy from South Africa add to the international flavour.

Also included are nuggets produced by Lee Hazlewood (who else would have dared reinvent Hollywood glamourpuss Ann-Margret as a metal mama?), Jack Nitzsche (Karen Verros - imagine Lesley Gore highjacked by the Yardbirds), Steve Cropper (mysterious Stax duo Cheryll & Pam, one of whom was his squeeze at the time) and Sly Stone (the Girls, some passing ingénues backed by the Beau Brummels, no less).

Compilation and notes by Mick Patrick.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I don't know about you but a comp titled 'Girls With Guitars' implies to me all girl outfits with drums, guitars and vocals but Ace meant their title to be read literally. So, as well as bonafide girl groups like The Feminine Complex or The She Trinity, we also have contributions from Ann Margret, Toni McCann & Sharon Tandy - all 'axe-backed babes' of course. Much of Destroy That Boy has appeared elsewhere, some in fact on other Ace releases but I guess that is to be expected. Not that I'd write this comp off, there's some cool girl group sounds like Shakin' All Over (Darlene & The Blue Angels) I Fought The Law (The She Trinity), He's About A Mover (The Liverbirds), not forgetting I've Been Working On You (The Feminine Complex). Ann Margret's 'It's A Nice World To Visit' is a Lee Hazelwood masterpiece on a par with Nancy's Some Velvet Morning. Can one ever tire of hearing Sharon Tandy's seering mod anthem 'Hold On'? Karen Verros' 'You Just Gotta Know My Mind' (later covered by Dana Gillespie) - produced by Jack Nitzsche is a real stand out. There's some dross, Virginia's The Lady Bugs frat anthem 'Fraternity USA' is sung in mock English accents and The She Trinity's prog rock 'Climb That Tree' is best forgotten. The Pivots demo of 'Steppin' Stone' is the stuff of bonus tracks and frankly second rate.

The booklet is in keeping with Ace's high standards and feature many rare pics.

DESTROY THAT BOY! MORE GIRLS WITH GUITARS 25 May 2009
By Stuart Jefferson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
One disc 68 minutes approximately. The sound is fine-clean and open with little variance from track to track. The sound has been cleaned up and restored with the usual mastering care from the folks at Ace Records.

This is a follow-up to the previous album GIRLS WITH GUITARS,also from Ace Records. This is,like the first installment,girl groups or girls fronting groups,with the accent on the girls contributions. This set has contributions from all over the western world (Australia,England etc.) and shows how wide a scope r&r truly had on the feminine side. The tunes are from the sixties-which should tell the listener what they're in for. Many of these tracks were inspired by The Beatles rise to fame-a time when everyone wanted to form a band. The arrangements usually have fuzzed out guitar,and a non-stop "beginner" drum sound. Not all the tracks are like that of course. Some are slower with subjects that you usually find in this music-namely boys and girls,and how they don't get along,along with the requisite backing. One of the more interesting tracks here is "Tell Me",the Rolling Stones song,done by THE TERMITES. They play it pretty straight here-sticking to the Stones arrangement,which is slightly surreal,yet a lot of fun to hear.

Some of the more interesting people on these tracks are Scott McKenzie (yes,that Scott McKenzie),who along with the folk singer, Erik Darling,were part of the group PROJECT X. Another short-lived group (weren't they all) THE GIRLS,were actually acquaintances of Sylvester "Sly" Stewart. There song "Here I Am In Love Again" was actually a backing-track done by the BEAU BRUMMELS in 1964. For whatever reason it wasn't finished,so Stewart,who had been hanging out with three Catholic (!) girls,invited them to record a vocal for the unfinished track. Another example is the duo CHERYL AND PAM,whose song,"He's My Guy",was co-written by Steve Cropper,who produced and played guitar on the track. Two interesting tracks performed by the more well known artists here,are the two tracks by Ann-Margret,the dancer and sometime actress. Never a great singer,these are true gems of the era. Her first track,"It's a Nice World to Visit (But Not To Live In)",is full of fuzzed out guitars and a pre-punk attitude in her vocals. The other tune "You Turned My Head Around",has her vocals out front of a semi-Phil Spector arrangement. One of the better finds here is Sharon Tandy. A great vocal with a band that seems in sync with her. Together they produce some good r&r,which is elevated by the white-hot guitar solo that's all fuzzed up. This track is a good indication of what's on her album that's been released on cd ("You Gotta Believe It's...") a while ago.

But these are certainly not the only gems to be heard here. Virtually every track is worth hearing,and will put a smile on your face(listen to "I'm Not Your Stepping Stone" by THE PIVOTS,or "He's About A Mover",done here by THE LIVERBIRDS),and set your foot to tapping. And that's what this music was intended to do-no big message,nothing "heavy". Just great music played by groups that never really went anywhere. But that's okay,with this release the listener can go back in time and relive an era that is long gone.

A must-have for curious rock fans! 6 July 2013
By S. DesBrisay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This follow-up to Girls With Guitars is another blast of raunchy, cool, and sometimes just-plain-odd rock from a diverse assortment of women. Like its predecessor, this disc shines a light on a too-little-known area of pop music. The obscurity of some of these tracks makes this collection essential for anyone doing serious studies of the history of popular music. But this a fun disc, and there's excellent notes and photos too. Get it and have a blast!
One of the better volumes 13 May 2015

Got this for my wife because she likes girl bands from the 60s. Most of the songs are good and not just filler. This is one of the better volumes in this series.
