5.0 out of 5 stars Watch Yer Step! September 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the best rock record ever recorded by an all-girl band.

This is the second best NWOBHM record, behind only "Killers" by Iron Maiden.

It's untouchable. 65% Motorhead, 15% AC/DC, 10% Van Halen, 10% The Ramones.

The songwriting is immpecable. Production superb. (Best rythym guitar sound in the history of the world)

All those lame bands like The Donnas and Sahara Hotnights just can't hold a candle to this.

What's it mean when we live in a world where your MOM'S rock 'n' roll kicks your rock 'n' roll's ass???

Sad, but this is beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally on CD!!! But... February 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
GIRLSCHOOL were a sadly overlooked heavy metal band made up of (guess what!) girls! But despite what you might think of a band with girls playing their instruments, GIRLSCHOOL played with such an intensity and a knack for hooky, catchy songs that some of their male counterparts twisted in shame. Despite being spawned during the NEW WAVE OF BRITISH HEAVY METAL's peak, GIRLSCHOOL's sound owed much to fellow punks like DISCHARGE and GBH and of course, MOTORHEAD, with whom they made a friendship that lasts even to this date. The guitar sounds are decidedly brutal, making any of DEF LEPPARD's records of the time (1980-1983) sound positively tame in comparison. HIT AND RUN is GIRLSCHOOL at its most intense, heaviest and fastest, yet the songs were really memorable and had this had a more "subtle" production it would have been an international hit. Songs like "Yeah Right", "Come on Let's go" and the punkish "Watch Your Step" were melodic yet utterly heavy. The press at the time labelled them "MOTORHEAD with breasts" and to a certain extent they were the female equivalent to that influential band. No other female band has sounded any better. Someone said something about the DONNAS here, and, just for the record, the DONNAS' "spend the night" actually sounds very close (production and song wise) to what GIRLSCHOOL were aiming at here. Of course, 25 years later a band like the DONNAS can get away with doing this stuff, but back in the very early 80's we only had GIRLSCHOOL.

One more thing: this cd seems to have ommited the song, "Race With The Devil". As far as I can remember, it was cover song but it really gelled well with the band's original material. It's a shame that song was not included for it would had made this CD a truly complete re issue.

For fans of thrashy british heavy metal and MOTORHEAD. Buy or die!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Girlschool - 'Hit & Run' (Castle) July 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Originally released in 1981, this was Girlschool's second lp. Well written and played girl's night out of 'New Wave Of British Heavy Metal' to be fully taken in here. They're like an all-female version of Motorhead. Most notable cuts include the rocking opener "C'mon Let's Go", "(I'm Your) Victim", their cover of ZZ Top's "Tush", title track "Hit & Run" and "Future Flash". So, you get the original album eleven song, plus nine (9) bonus cuts on the CD reissue. A definite should-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic reissue of this NWOBHM classic December 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Originally released in 1981, Hit and Run was the second album from Girlschool, the pioneering all-female hard rock/heavy metal band from the classic New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) scene. The band, which benefitted from an association with Motorhead, more than proved that metal wasn't just a man's game.

Hit and Run is pretty much the perfect album for capturing Girlschool's sound. The band had a raw, punkish hard rock sound that was part Motorhead and part Di'Anno era Iron Maiden, with perhaps some Ramones and Runaways thrown in for good measure. Girlschool never bothered with the fantasy and occult trappings that a lot of NWOBHM bands latched onto, instead serving up songs like "C'mon Let's Go," "Hit and Run" and "Kick It Down," which had a much simpler message. This is high speed, high energy hard rock that captures the "live fast, die young" attitude of the era. They also delivered a scorching cover of ZZ Top's "Tush" here, which became a popular favorite.

There are probably only two essential Girlschool albums, and Hit and Run is definitely one of them (Demolition is the other). If you're a Girlschool fan and/or serious NWOBHM collector, you need this album. Casual fans will probably be better off with the 2-disc Girlschool Collection, which features a number of the songs from Hit and Run.

Edition Notes: Castle/Sanctuary reissued Hit and Run in 2004. The reissue features digitally remastered audio (and like nearly all of Castle's NWOBHM reissues the sound quality is top notch), a nice booklet full of band info and rare photos, and a hefty nine bonus tracks.
