She loves you, instead!
The Bootles were another bandwagon response to the Beatles' invasion of the States. Issued on the Crescendo label before the Seeds and Jazz artists gave them cred, it's generally thought to be studio cats and kitties with four models vamping for the 45 sleeve. The mystery vocalists have that unmistakeable New York swagger and tough sass, and you can virtually hear the transition from the Ronettes to the Shangri-La's around the corner. Though this is a studio knock-off, it has a greatness that Beat and Garage fans revere. But there was plenty of the real thing to come...

The Beatles' electric energy catalyzed their generation into making rock'n'roll. The myriad of boys get their due, but the girls deserve their spotlight as well. This video highlights some of the most revered girl Beat bands from around the world. So let's hear it for:
The Liverbirds, who also went from Liverpool to Hamburg's Star Club; Les Beatlettes, who later morphed into Les Guerrieres; Goldie and the Gingerbreads, the first all-girl rock band signed to a major contract; The Girls, who were the Sandoval Sisters (a.k.a., the Moon Maids); 'The Sweetles' from Germany; chameleonic Jackie DeShannon, whose songwriting and guitar chops earned her a tour with the Beatles and hits for the Searchers; The Daughters of Eve; The What Four; The (original) Pandoras, spiritual big sisters of Paula's great 80's group of the same name; Sally & the Alley Cats; Sanjalice from Yugoslavia, in the latter 60's; the absolutely essential Luv'd Ones, whom leader Char Vinnedge steared from Merseybeat and Surf into Garage and gloriously fuzzy Psyche; and the Pleasure Seekers, starring 16-year-old Suzi Quatro and her sisters, Pattie and Arlene.




To all of these pioneers and their kindred sisters, this video is to tell you "we love you, yeah yeah yeah!"
