Girls At Our Best! were a post-punk group, founded in Leeds, England in 1979 under the name the Butterflies. The group consisted of vocalist Judy Evans, guitarist James Alan and bassist Gerald Swift, later adding drummer Carl Harper.

The band’s name came from a line in their song “Warm Girls”, which first appeared on a 1980 single coupled with “Getting Nowhere Fast” on Record Records (catalogue number RR1). The song topped the UK indie charts, as did their second single, “Politics” c/w “It’s Fashion!” (Record Records RR2). After a third single, “Go for Gold” c/w “I’m Beautiful Now” on Happy Birthday Records (UR4), the group released an album, Pleasure in 1981 which came complete with a “Pleasure Bag” comprising of stickers and postcards. It was also the first album to be released on the Happy Birthday label (catalogue number RULP1). Their fourth and final single “Fast Boyfriends” c/w “This Train” (Happy Birthday Records UR6) was released that same year.

In 1987, their 1981 John Peel Sessions’ 12” was released (Strange Fruit Records SFPS029) featuring “China Blue” and “This Train” on the A-side and a medley of other tracks entitled “Getting Beautiful Warm Gold Fast From Nowhere” on the B-side.
