The Gymslips were an all-girl pop punk from from the UK that formed in the early 80's, released a handful of 45s and a full length LP before splitting off into other bands (The Renees, Potato 5, The Deltones). They started off solid with great reviews, John Peel sessions and they toured with Dolly Mixture in 1981. I'm dying to find this record (see below) where they cover one of my favorite songs of all time, Suzi Quatro's 48 Crash, and do a damn good job at it, too! You can hear a clip of that song here.
