June and Jean Millington were from the Philippines and joined forces with Alice De Buhr and Nickey Barclay in Sacramento, the band originally called Wild Honey. They’d go on to release five albums (with Patti Quattro joining for the last one when June would move to Isis) and then split in 1975. While the Quattro sisters and their Detroit band the Pleasure Seekers predate Fanny, few knew of them, and Fanny played a big part in inspiring female rockers, likely the rockers that rose in the second half of the 1970s, such as the Wilson sisters of Heart and the girls of the Runaways. In fact, many young girls growing up in the 1970s point out how this group inspired them to learn to play instruments and dedicate their lives to rock n roll. Fifty years ago, Fanny recorded this album. Fifty years later, here’s the first-ever reissue. -- winch

 

"It’s hard to overstate the importance of Fanny’s 1970 debut album. For the first
time, a group of women (sisters June and Jean Millington, Alice De Buhr and Nickey
Barclay) wrote and sang their own songs, played their own instruments and,
perhaps most importantly, rocked just as hard as any male band out there. And, as
the first all female band signed to a major label (Reprise) and with superstar
producer Richard Perry at the board, these four women became perhaps L.A.’s
biggest “buzz band,” landing repeated bookings at the Whisky-a-Go-Go with a who’s
who of rock’s glitterati in attendance. But, without a reference point with which to
review them, the rock press was less than kind, often dismissing them as a novelty
act. Fanny would have to become that reference point, and so they did for the
generations of female rockers to come after them, from Joan Jett to Girlschool to
Courtney Love and beyond. They were truly the Godmothers of Chick Rock.
Now, Real Gone Music is proud to reissue, for the first time ever on LP, the self-titled
debut release from Fanny, complete with the original gatefold album art and in a
white vinyl pressing limited to 700 copies. Grrl power starts here!"
