Blondie: Show Preview

Blondie
Blondie

Decades after Blondie's '70s breakthrough, the band's New Wave music is still vital: frontwoman Debbie Harry's 2007 solo single, "Two Times Blue," delighted more than just a Today Show audience, and 2004's The Curse of Blondie was a credible impression of electroclash. Since you stopped remembering how famous she is, Harry has made spoken-word rap-metal about the pope's dick, fronted swing collective the Jazz Passengers, rhymed "Maria" with "see her," and even hired Coolio for a spell. The band that made her famous was making bristling avant-punk before "One Way or Another" was rewritten for the Rugrats movie — so let this reminder correct your assumptions about all the Blondie greatest hits albums in cheapie record bins. They are good.
