Limited 140gm clear vinyl LP pressing. Hit and Run is the second studio album by the British heavy metal band, Girlschool, originally released in 1981. Like it's predecessor Demolition (1980), it was recorded at Jackson's Studios, England, in December 1980 and January 1981. Vic Maile (Small Faces, Led Zeppelin, Hendrix) was again the producer. Hit and Run is the most successful Girlschool album, having reached #5 in the UK Albums Chart, with the single of the title track climbing to #32 in the UK Singles Chart. Girlschool formed in 1978 and they are frequently associated with contemporaries Motorhead. They are the longest running all-female rock band, still active after more than 35 years. Formed from a school band called Painted Lady, Girlschool enjoyed strong media exposure and commercial success in the UK in the early 1980s with three albums of 'punk-tinged metal' and a few singles.
