BLONDIE: 'Blondie' (Private Stock PVLP 1017)
An American outfit of four guys and delectable young blonde by the name of Deborah Harry make up Blondie. They're making noises to rave reviews on the other side of the Atlantic. Listen to this LP and you'll see why. Fast moving, energetic rockers a la New Wave. Deborah Harry's (pictured right) raw vocals are superb, she knocks spots off Suzi Quatro or any one else you care to name. And on slower numbers such as 'In The Flesh' she shows her voice has sensuality as well as raw power. With titles like 'X Offender', 'Rip Her To Shreds' and 'Kung Fu Girls', you might suppose that their music is violent. It's violent, but fun.
