1976. Fran & Leni meet in a North London comp.
Three years later they are The Rips.
Girls with guitars, bored of playing nice.
“I was the punk. I was born punk. But she was my rock. The only one I ever had.”

Old Trunk provoked laughter & tears at Latitude & Edinburgh with this full-throttle tale of escape and lifelong friendship.
