In this live music video, pioneer all-women punk band the Lou’s play No escape, in July 1978 in the Olympia in Paris, as support band of John Lydon (aka Rotten)’s band Public Image Ltd (PIL).
PIL liked the Lou’s so well that they also played twice with them in the Rainbow Theatre in London in December 1978.
Other bands with whom they played: eg, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Sham 69, the Mekons and Subway Sect.
The Lou’s were three French women and Dutch drummer Saskia aka Sascha aka Syama de Jong.
In 1979 two of the Lou’s, Ms de Jong on drums and Raphaelle Devins on saxophone, joined London band Verdict. They played many concerts for Rock Against Racism.
The biography of the Lou’s on Last.fm was updated today.
