Formed in 1969 by Californian siblings June and Jean Millington, Fanny were one of the first all-female bands to release an album in the US. David Bowie said they were as important as The Beatles. Comprising women of colour, and lesbians to boot, there are no prizes for guessing their fate. Overlooked despite their originality and musical skills, they quit in 1975 largely to become producers and session musicians. Bowie urged for the band to be ‘revivified’. And now they are finally back, reunited in their seventies with a new record deal. Featuring fantastic archive photography by Linda Wolf, Bobbi Jo Hart’s uplifting film is sure to make you a fan of the band and will finally give them the fame they deserve.
