One of the submissions to the Doc'n Roll Film Festival in London this year is Gina Birch’s (The Raincoats) and Helen Reddington’s (The Chefs) Stories From The She Punks: Music With A Different Agenda. Q&A and movie premiere happen on Saturday, November 10 at Genesis Cinema E1.
“Loud, fearless and (un)typical girls: Gina Birch (The Raincoats) and Helen Reddington (The Chefs), musicians and punk icons turned directors, serve up a fascinating documentary built on new interviews with the women who played instruments in punk bands in the 1970s. In accounts laced with wit, honesty and insight, pioneering players including the Adverts’ Gaye Black (bass), Palmolive from The Slits (drums), Shanne Bradley from The Nips (bass), Jane Munro from The Au Pairs (bass), Hester Smith and Rachel Bor from Dolly Mixture (drums and guitar), bassist Gina and guitarist Ana da Silva from The Raincoats, as well as many others, we hear about acquiring instruments, learning to play, forming bands and getting gigs.”
