NEW YORK--When Cherie Currie joined Joan Jett onstage to sing "Cherry Bomb" in Anaheim, CA on August 18, 2001, it marked the first time the musicians had performed the song that Jett wrote for Currie together in over two decades.
On May 15, Blackheart Records released a limited edition EP of the Jett/Currie "Cherry Bomb," recorded live at the surprise reunion. The disc will also include Currie's "Don't Believe In Heaven," and a previously unreleased live studio version of Jett's "Long Time."
It has been 25 years since Jett and Currie made history as members of The Runaways, the all-girl rock band whose brief, loud career led the way for rocking women ever after, from the GoGos to Lunachicks, L7, Hole, Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinney and the Donnas.
Jett's love of rock and roll (with her band, the Blackhearts) has continued unabated through 11 hit singles and more than a dozen albums; Currie has recorded five albums, and continues to perform live. As an actress, her films include "Foxes" and "Wavelength". She is the author of a memoir Neon Angel, and has recently added the role of record producer to her resume.
"Cherry Bomb" produced by Joan Jett and Kenny Laguna, engineered by Billy Crater. "Long Time" produced by Joan Jett and Kenny Laguna, engineered by Joe Johnson at Studio 900.
"Don't Believe In Heaven" was written, produced and engineered by Cherie Currie.
All mastering by John Aiosa.
