posted Thursday Jan 8th, 2015

Just when you really need some HEAT in your life, it's time to remember one of the most blazing bands of the mid 1970s in their full glory, those inimitable powerhouses known as the Runaways, seen here in an uncut high-definition full concert in Japan on their 1977 breakout tour. Captured on Japanese TV in their five-piece glory at the height of their powers, Joan Jett, Lita Ford, Cherie Curie, Sandy West, and Jackie Fox took the land of the rising sun by storm and sent fans into whiplash frenzy at each and every turn.

Professionally-shot Japanese video from the 1970s is usually of a much higher caliber than anywhere else, as the AV equipment's advances were expanding on a daily basis, so crank up your speakers, kick this incredible full live show into full-screen mode and revel in the unreal power of the Runaways!
