The Sadista Sisters

The Sadista Sisters were Teresa D'Abreu & Judith Alderson (who wrote the book and lyrics), Jacky Tayler (who wrote the music) and Linda Marlowe.

Their provocative show was a hard-core feminist, black comedy rock music extravaganza which ran for several weeks at the Edinburgh Festival in 1975 and went on to play to packed houses in the main room of Ronnie Scott's London jazz club for six weeks.

The following extracts from the song lyrics give a flavour of the content and attitude of the show's message:
