Formed in late 1975 and discovered by KIM FOWLEY..the original Girl-Group was at home
in powerful Glam-Rock sounds till split in 1980.
FOWLEY dried with some new members to hold connection in the 80s.
Lita Ford & Joan Jett became successful solo artists and Cherie Currie
made some solo & Duo recordings with sister Marie and got into film acting.
born Joan Larkin left the RUNAWAYS in late 1979 and produced first solo album with producer Kenny Laguna.
The LP was only released in Germany through Ariola, no company in USA was found so Joan released the LP privatley
Some times later the 1st LP was re-released as BAD REPUTATION. The follow up I lOVE ROCK N ROLL (see. Arrows (UK))
from 1982 was very successful , because same named single became a number one in USA.
With CRIMSON & CLOVER originally from TOMMY JAMES & The SHONDELLS went into the top 10 too.
With the next albums and singles the luck was gone.
