Our Lady of Perpetual Peroxide
Blondie’s Parallel Lines is FREE this weekend with the Daily Snail in a smart move by the band to publicise their forthcoming new release Panic of girls.
Parallel lines was one of the albums you just had to own in the 70’s and it sent Debbie and her other misfit chums stellar with such uber cool hits as Hanging on the Telephone, Sunday Girl, Picture This and the juggernaut disco mutant Heart of Glass, but the main reason to let the Daily Mail mug you of the cover price of their rag is to get an early taster of the bonus tracks on the CD which are lifted from Panic of girls. ( below left, Cover by Chris berens) The new album was recorded in woodstock in 2009 and fans have been chomping at the bit to get a listen to it.
The tracks include: Girlie, Girlie, Mother and What I Heard Panic is due for release in December for Australia (Don’t ask!) and January in the UK. Blondie are currently touring in Australia with The Pretenders but expect them back in the UK soon to promote Panic.
