Welcome to another instalment of Heavy Metal Cover Girls, a semi-regular feature where I post album covers starring attractive women and pretend I'm doing it as some sort of artistic analysis.
Last time around I did some seriously Bad Girls. I wanted to do "Good Girls" today but as it turns out, you don't get many of them on metal album covers. In retrospect, this should not have surprised me.
So instead I'm going to cover the forces of law, order and discipline. That's right kiddies, tonight we're delving into the world of women in uniform.
Bunker - Cirugia Fatal (Argentina 1985)
The next two are in law enforcement
Ask Alice - Big Busted + 6 (USA 1996 reissued 2016)
Have you noticed that whenever police women appear on album covers they're never wearing stab vests?
Or trousers for that matter.
Ask Alice were a Sleaze Rock band that arrived just as grunge was laying waste the LA scene.
Loud 'N' Nasty - Teaser Teaser (Sweden 2004)
She seems a bit annoyed about something. Maybe it's the way her skirtlet keeps riding up.
Hey, unlike the last officer, at lest she has a skirt.
You already know what Loud 'N' Nasty are going to sound like, don't you?
If you don't like 80s LA Metal back away now.
Sergeant - S/T (Switzerland 1984)
Not so much Police as "Secret Police" because she has a definite Third Reich vibe going on.
Anybody else remember the Two Ronnies "The Worm That Turned" serial?
More specifically the leather wearing Policewomen hunting the heroes.

Sergeant were more AOR than Metal but who cares?
Then to finish, two ladies who are doing their bit for their country.
Boosting morale, presumably.
Sarge - S/T (USA 1981 reissued 2014)
Not sure whether she's saluting, waving or trying to keep the sun out of her eyes.
Her bra terrifies me.
Sarge were apparently massive on the early 80s LA scene; so much so that Metallica once opened for them.

Shel Shoc - Rocked And Loaded (USA 2010)
As anybody who's ever watched a movie or an anime will tell you, it's precisely this kind of scruffy misfit that wins wars.
Mind you, anime will also tell you that putting unstable 15 year olds inside giant mechs is a good idea so make of that what you will.
Shel Shoc are another lost band from the 1980s Sunset Strip that have been rediscovered and reissued by Demon Doll Records.
