Information Heavy metal Girlschool rocks tonight They are four English girls traveling throughout the United States laying their heavy metal sound on audiences of all shapes and sizes. And they're too good to miss. Girlschool, bringing their show to the Maxx at 8 tonight, has been together since 1978 when two of the members of the group Painted Lady struck out to find a better mix for the sound they wanted to accomplish. Through a series of changes and producers, the band has put out four albums, three which are available to United States fans. Kim McAuliffe, the lead singer for the band who also plays guitar, said the idea was to "get a band together properly with a permanent lineup. "We had all been friendly over the years and we just started talking among ourselves of the idea of get together to form a band. " The result was Girlschool. In the beginning, the intention was not to form an all girl band, but the group had no takers of the masculine persuasion so Girlschool took shape and literally took off. "It's really no different having an all girl band than having an all male band, I don't think," McAuliffe said. "We are treated just as I would assume other bands are and don't really get any special attention just because we are 'Stompin', play in" gives trio style She's got a voice that's a cross between Bette Midler's sassy wail and Melissa Manchester's gutsy alto. The guys can work magic with their hands on the keyboards and guitar and their feet on the stomp boards. Little Queenie and the Skin Twins, playing Thursday through Saturday from 8 p.m. to close at George Street Grocery in Jackson, are a New Orleans trio epitomizing that city's special brand of rhythm and blues. But probably the most impressive thing about the band is the fact they get all that percussion sound just by stomping their feet. "We really get to going when we Premiere hinges on adventure In the summer of 1940, the Nazis sent one of their leaders, Major General Walter Schellen-berg, to Lisbon to implement a plot to kidnap the Duke of Windsor, then living in exile in the Portuguese coastal city with his wife, the duchess. This fascinating piece of history is the springboard for the HBO Premiere Films presentation "To Catch a King," an adventure of espionage and intrigue in wartime Europe debuting Sunday, Feb. 12, at 7 p.m. CST on the HBO service. Other playdates include Feb. 16, 21, 25 and 28. Robert Wagner and Teri Garr star as two Americans who stumble upon a Nazi plot that could change the course of history. Wagner is Joe Jackson, an expatriate who runs a nightclub in Lisbon. Garr is Hannah Winter, a blues singer working in her uncle's club in Berlin. A twist of fate makes them unlikely allies in a race against time and across continents to save a man they've never met and stop a sinister Nazi scheme. In addition to Wagner and Garr, "To Catch a King" stars Horst Janson as Schellenberg, John Standing and Barbara Parkins as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, 'Celebrity': A film By MIKE HUGHES Qwinea Utwt Swvtc Tommy Thompson was a writer who had almost done it all. He was city editor of the Houston Press by the time he was 23. He went on to Life and the New York Times, usually in the middle of the action. Shortly after John Kennedy died, he had the assassin's family carefully tucked away in his hotel suite. He also wrote five non-fiction books, two of them "Blood and Money" and "Serpentine" major successes. Now it was time for a novel. girls." McAuliffe admitted they "had a tendency for developing" a following of male fans if they played a club for a two- or three-day period during this U.S. tour, but all the girls "have steadies in England," who serve as their "sort of self-appointed fan club." They've received a fairly warm welcome wherever they have been on this U.S. tour and have played all sizes of halls and coliseums. A European following can be found in just about every country on the continent, naturally with the largest group in their native England. On earlier tours of both the U.S. and Europe, they have traveled with Uriah Heep and Black Sabbath, and are expecting to do a few shows with Blue Oyster Cult during this trip. "We've been surprised at some of the welcomes we have received," McAuliffe said. "We weren't really sure how well our music had done over here, but to our surprise, we find a lot of recognition. "In some places, we have people singing along with a tune or calling for a song." Girlschoors latest album "Play Dirty" has probably gotten the largest play stateside and shows the talent contained in the band. The title track is a raucous rock-and-roll tune combining styles heard before are stompin' and playin,'" said John Magnie, one of the "twins" whose other specialty is the keyboards. "And the whole time people just keep looking and wondering 'where's the beat?' "We do a little of everything golden oldies, old blues. I guess if I had to classify it, I would say we are a little rock and roll and a little rhythm and blues all tied up together." "I'd agree we are more of a R-and-B orientation," Leigh Harris, aka "Little Queenie," said. "I tell people we do modern American music, because it's easier that way and nobody usually asks for an explanation." Magnie and Harris have been i Mai"; NIGHTCLUB OWNER JOE Jackson (Robert Wagner) shields blues singer Hannah Winter (Teri Garr) from the sinister advances of a Nazi known as Kleiber (John Patrick) in "To Catch a and Marcel Bozzuffi as Colonel da Cunha, a police inspector. Moving from Berlin to Paris to Portugal, "To Catch a King" weaves a tapestry of suspense and intrigue against some of Europe's What followed was a lone, nainful experience. But it produced a best-seller that's ready to hit the TV screen. On Sunday, Feb. 12, NBC launches a three-night, six-and-a-half-hour run of "Celebrity." It's a big, handsome show, blessed with crisp dialog and superb actors. But the story of how it got there has its own drama. Staring at his first piece of fiction, Thompson suddenly had writer's block. For a year, nothing that he liked came out. H (, m J) J &'r mi GIRLSCHOOL, England's all girl heavy metal band playing tonight only at the Maxx on U.S. 49 south, is made up of, from left: Front Gil Weston, bass guitar and vocals, Kelly Johnson, lead guitar and vocals; back Kim McAuliffe, guitar and vocals, and Denise Dufort, drums. by artists like DefLeppard. They stay away from ballad-type love songs and McAuliffe said they "plan for it to stay that way," keeping their concentration on heavy metal rock-and-roll. "We're serious about our sound and the band. We decided a long time ago to go for it, and that's exactly what we plan to keep together about eight years, formerly playing under the name Little Queenie and the Percolators, and teamed with Bruce MacDonald, the group's guitarist and Harris' husband about two years ago, forming the present group. . Harris' nickname "was an unkind one when I got branded with it about 10 years ago," but she used it "mainly to get back at the fellow who gave it to me and to be truthful, I really kind of liked it." Harris does most of the singing for the group with the back-up harmony of "Skin Twins" Magnie and MacDonald, so-called because in Magnie's estimation "We look like twin telephone poles you know, tall and skinny." .0 most dazzling locales. The film begins in Estoril, on the seacoast of Portugal, where the Duke and Duchess of Windsor have taken refuge from German-occupied France. Meanwhile, in Berlin, the worth waiting for He began seeing a psychiatrist who used hypnosis, and that gave him the confidence to start again. "I tore up the first 500 pages, burned them one foggy, cold California night and re-commenced the next morning. This time, the characters worked." "Celebrity" told of three Texas buddies who took separate routes to fame, but remained haunted by a dark secret. Even before it hit the bookstores, it was drawing interest from TV. Susan Baerwald, who's in charge of mini-series at NBC, is the niece doing." The show will feature cuts from all four of the albums currently in vinyl and starts at 8, with an $8 cover charge. It's a show promising Hat-tiesburg-area residents a real dose of heavy metal rock special delivery from England. Together, the trio takes their audience on a musical trip through the world of the '60s and sticks with this style through the original pieces Magnie said make up about half their repertoire. They've just started getting out on the road a little and are hoping to take their show a little further north since, as Magnie said, "Yankees need our kind of music." For the weekend at least, they're stopping their trek northward in Jackson, and if you happen to be in the mood for some laid-back rhythm and blues, the close atmosphere of George Street offers the perfect setting for a stompin' good time with Little Queenie and the Skin Twins. t King," an adventure of espionage and intrigue about a Nazi plot to kidnap the Duke of Windsor.
