REALITY CHECK DVD is a real eye-opener. It has been long in the making and has fairly good production values. Not flawless but good enough. Last month, I went to the Old Mab in SF's North Beach to see the Turbonegro tribute band Turbonegra; and from the booth where I was sitting, Hugh (Huge) from Reality Check was sitting up his display of this video. He sold me immediately on buying a copy. I am thoroughly glad I did!.

'REAL ROCK DIVAS' contains
live action clips of punk, metal exotic and neo new wave female rockers in concert and in exclusive interviews.


Some of the bands and performers include
The Donnas, Bif Naked, Doro (Dorothy Pesch),
Lacuna Coil, the Lunachicks, L7, Hellfire Choir,
The Skirts, Hemi Cuda, Sahara Hot Nights,
Barbee Killed Kenn, Storm Large (before "Rock Star: Super Nova"), Lita Ford (formerly of the Runaways), Kittie, Bomber, Bubble, Imagika, Boudeeka and more!
Hosted by Stuttering D-D- Danny, Ace, Dragon Dave and Huge, the DVD is sure to rock your mind with some of the most exciting footage of girl bands. The interviews are quite humorous, off the cuff and help to
define the concert footage with background situations.

This is the only video I know that has its only focus on girl bands. It doesn't pander but it doesn't censor either.

According to their website, Reality Check TV is trying to get the video into national retail outlets like Target, Best Buy and Wal-Mart.You don't have to wait, however. You can buy the video directly at:
