The Orchids with Kim Fowley, circa 1979 (photo by Brad Elterman)

nooo i cant stop staring at Laurie McAllister, that one with spreaded legs

This is really mysterious band, I’m not even sure about names of these girls. I think that original members were Laurie Bell, Cindy Collins, Laurie McAllister, Sunbie Sinn, Che Zuro and later Cindy was replaced by Jan King (songs from 1979 haven’t been sung by the same vocalist as in 1980, and on their earliest photos we can see long haired chick - Cindy Collins, on newer ones there is a different girl with shag haircut - Jan King).

Brad Elterman have written on his website that he took this photo in 1978, but he can’t be right, because Laurie McAllister have been The Runaways’ bass player since september 1978 to april 1979, and after they break up, she joined The Orchids (she stayed with them until the end of 1980).

yep my english sucks

But Danny disappears to find his estranged family, played by Bobby Cannavale and Jennifer Garner. …
