    ...just popped up in my YouTube-feed.... never heard of them, but this is something to listen to.

    Not often I hear new artists that I catch up with right from the start.

    5/5 - jackpot. :righton:

    Spread the word.

    Been a fan for a few years now, having also discovered them via the Beat Club performance after spotting the box set at my local shop (which I purchased soon after).

    Check out the Get Behind Fanny podcast, which is hosted by drummer Alice De Buhr along with the daughter of Fanny’s manager and the webmaster of the Fanny website. June and Jean Millington make regular appearances remotely too. Great stuff!

  6. They never caught on which is a pity. A hit single would have helped.

    This is one of the albums I picked up off VinylMePlease a while back. I'm shocked that I had never heard of them back in the day... Fanny

    Fanny was a great band back in the day. I had a friend in the 1980s make tapes of two of their albums for me (he discovered them in a box of his aunt's albums that she no longer wanted when she gave them to him). Too bad that they weren't as popular as some pop acts of the day. I just think that they were a little too far ahead of their time.

    More like they didn't get a big publicity machine behind their albums and tours.

    When you're looking for ground zero of an all-female band, not masterminded by men, not ghost played by men, with songs not written by men, and with sufficient success to release a major label album, Fanny is your answer.

    I’m trying to post the video of them doing Ain’t That Peculiar, which is freakin’ amazing, but YouTube ain’t letting me. The drummer is awesome IMHO

    Fanny was on popular shows like The Sonny & Cher tv show, Midnight Special, and others. That sort of exposure in those days was huge. I say that they were ahead of their time because they fell between the cracks (no pun intended). Pop fans of female artists/songwriters in the day may not have liked the rocker sound and many rockers may have thought that female musicians couldn't rock out (just a guess).

    I was just a baby when they were new artists. When I heard them in the 1980s for the first time, I was shocked that I'd never heard them before. A local rock radio station played older, less known rock albums but never played anything by Fanny. I'm glad that they are reaching a new audience via the internet.
