In ‘School of Rock,’ Jack Black taught a bunch of school kids about the joys of AC/DC and took them to Battle of the Bands victory. North London trio Girl Ray’s story also starts at a rock club. Except, the one guitarist / vocalist Poppy Hankin and bassist Sophie Moss went to in Year 7 wasn’t quite as exciting. “It was an after school club and there was just four of us,” Poppy explains. “I kind of expected someone like Jack Black to be there,” Sophie laughs.
