Background
There was a recent article in the New Zealand Herald regarding NY new wave rockers Blondie, and this new 2017 album 'Pollinator'. There's a name that hasn't been heard in decades, even if Debbie Harry, Chris Stein and the band have been out there doing their thing. Blondie have released the odd CD on occasion, their last studio album being 2014's 'Ghosts Of Download'. I've never been that big a fan of theirs, so I was interested to see what they sounded like decades on. Pretty good I would suggest, though not a complete rewrite of their prime 1976-1979 era. The first single 'Long Time' is a sure-fire templated Blondie without doubt, and I have to say overall, the songs are more cohesive and band oriented than some of their experimental output, but then again, Harry and Stein didn't write much of the material here. There's a diverse line-up of guests, refer their Wikipedia Page for more details, and from there, you can also see the songwriting credits. I might be pulling 'Pollinator' out from time to time, but more as a novelty than anything else. As a sidenote to GDM readers, it's good to see Leigh Foxx (previously with Franke & The Knockouts) still out there treading the boards.
