The Canadian rock group known as the B Girls
formed in 1977. The mostly-girl band completed a few albums, lent background vocals to some full-length works by other artists, and did a little touring before calling it quits near the end of 1981. Members of the group were lead guitarist Renee Chetsky, bassist Cynthia Ross
, drummer Mark Saddy, singer Locasta Ross, and guitarist Xenia Splawinski. The B Girls
released its debut album, Live & Kicking
, around 1978. A sophomore offering simply titled B-Day showed up in 1980. Nearly 20 years later a third album, Who Says Girls Can't Rock
, was put together from some live numbers and a few songs that had been recorded during the band's short existence, but never released. Some of the tunes that fill these pop/rock flavored with early punk albums include "Angel Doesn't Shoot a Gun," "Fun at the Beach," "Long Distance Love," "Two Hearts," and "Heartbreaker."
