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.
