Event Information

Helen Reddington talk: The Lost Women of Rock, Female Musicians of the Punk Era

Friday 20 April 2012

Record Store Eve -Friday 20th April at 7.30pm

Helen Reddington (aka Helen McCookerybook – Chefs/Helen & The Horns) talks about her new book:

‘The Lost Women of Rock – Female Musicians of the Punk Era’ (£16.99)

The book explores the sudden influx of women in rock music enabled by the emergence of punk and the Sex Discrimination Act, right through to the demise of the scene, and the reasons why the end of punk saw the end of these once prominent females rock musicians. 

“An entertaining and important book” – Mojo

“A fascinating social and cultural history” – Popular Music

Tickets for this event are £4 each which is redeemable against the full price of the book.

This is a must-attend for fans of Helen and her projects as well as The Slits, The Raincoats, Delta 5 etc.

Also available: The Chefs ‘Records & Tea’ – The Best of the Chefs’ CD

And for those interested (everyone, surely?) the definitive David’s Record Store Day product list will be available from this event!
