By Iman Lababedi | June 28, 2015

The Tide Is High – Blondie – Is this an official gay anthem? Blondie’s famous cover of the Paragons masterpiece survives as their encore. It was the highlight of their set at Roseland, with a full brass section coming out to join her and the highlight of a whole day of music yesterday with Debbie literally wrapping herself in a rainbow flag – A

Blondie Calling it Quits?

By Helen Bach | July 19, 2014

‘By the time we get to beautiful Vancouver, B.C., we will have toured Europe, played Glastonbury and done a number of big festivals in North America. for the rumours of the last tour, we’ve decided we’ll live forever. But Debbie, is older than me and has hinted it could be time. Obviously without her, there is no Blondie.

10 Songs, Sunday, May 18th, 2014

By Iman Lababedi | May 18, 2014

16 Shades Of Blue – Tori Amos – Her best song in years isn’t much different that her worst song in years, but any song with a line like “50 is the new black, hurray” is getting her Emily Bronte on musically while watching the clock carefully – B+

By Iman Lababedi | May 13, 2014

White Women – Chromeo – I’ve never been much of a fan of this disco duo, never hit me as inventive as Holy Ghost for one, but they get it right here. High energy, melodic, if a little old fashioned. The Solange song is terrific the Ezra Koenig song uses his falsetto to great effect and the opening track masterful – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – B+

By Iman Lababedi | May 11, 2014

Did you read the Rolling Stone Black Keys review? “In every other way, that turmoil is a giant step into the best, most consistently gripping album the Keys have ever made.” I’ve heard one song and it stank so please excuse me while I sneer up my sleeves. I am gonna go with either Blondie -though it includes that EP from last year with Gossip which I liked I didn’t love. As for Dolly Parton, her last albu was killer so maybe it’s more a toss up.

‘BLONDIE 4(0) EVER’-Get your Wallet

By Helen Bach | April 26, 2014

Its very hard to believe that Blondie has been around for forty years. Its astonishing actually since no one who was involved in the ‘first wave’ of new wave believes they’re over 20 years old.

Debbie Harry; God Like Genius

By Helen Bach | March 8, 2014

When you’re the lead singer of a band called Blondie and decades later you’re still on stage- you’re legendary at least. She has maintained her grace and beauty all along the way and despite wear and tear on the vocals

Essential New Wave Tracks, Part I

By Steve Crawford | January 19, 2014

As punk music croaked commercially in the U.S. in the late ‘70s, its safer kid sister, “new wave,” was introduced as an alternative marketing term. What exactly was “new wave”? Everything that had a beat and wasn’t metal was thrown into that category at one point

Blondie's "No Principals" Tour Featuring X, Roseland, Friday, October 4th, 2013, Reviewed

By Iman Lababedi | October 5, 2013

There is nothing of the elder statesperson, of the Queen Mum, of any of that stuff. By keeping cool Harry is above it, an untouchable, she remains physically provocative and less a nostalgia act. It is that and not the newer material, which make Blondie viable in 2013.
