But those who know, know. “Every time we play Sweden,” says McAuliffe, “there’s always loads of girls at our gigs, always coming up going, ‘We’ve got a band! And we were inspired by you. That’s really good. You think: at last!” I blame Lemmy for everything’ … the two bands in 1981. (l-r) Eddie Clarke, McAuliffe, Phil Taylor, Dufort, Weston, Lemmy and Johnson. Photograph: Adrian Boot/Urbanimage.tv Reading 81 proved to be the high point of that original lineup. Doug Smith rented a pink Cadillac reputedly once owned by Jayne Mansfield, “and that’s how we drove to Reading, with the top down, up the motorway,” Dufort says. “There was a bunch of bikers all beeping their horns at us. They escorted us to the gig, because they were going and they seemed to know who we were.” The long association with Motörhead was both boon and curse for Girlschool. The two bands became entwined both personally (Johnson began a relationship with Lemmy; McAuliffe with Motörhead guitarist Fast Eddie Clarke) and professionally: both bands’ biggest hit was their joint St Valentine’s Day Massacre EP, which reached No 5 in February 1981. But there was a sense of them being Motörhead’s pet band.

As Williams puts it: “We’d seen a picture of him and thought: shit. We were not quite sure what to expect.” But Lemmy loved Girlschool, and invited them on Motörhead’s Overkill tour in spring 1979. Doug Smith, who managed Motörhead and then took on Girlschool, too, played the single to Lemmy, who invited himself to watch them rehearse. “We were really scared,” Dufort says, “really nervous about this guy coming down.”There was a deeply peculiar NME cover story by Paul Morley – the cover image was, naturally, a naked Johnson wrapped in a sheet, with the words “the little boys understand” – that devoted more space to McAuliffe’s father than to the band. There was, Williams says, the possibility and sometimes the reality of sexual assault from men charged with looking after their career. And there was the way they saw other bands treat other women.
