If, like us, you've been feeling like your life has been lacking a soundtrack recently, then salvation is about to come in the form of the New York Dolls' new album, Dancing Backward in High Heels.
This is the Dolls' 5th studio album, featuring original NYD members, David Johansen (vocals) and Sylvain Sylvain (guitar) with Brian Delaney (drums), Jason Hill (bass) and original Blondie guitarist Frank Infante.
DBIHH is best described as modern nostaligia, with a new twist on a classic style. Streetcake, Funky but Chic, and Kids Like You are definite highlights, and new single Fool For You Baby is a great example of what to expect from the album.
Dancing Backward In High Heels proves that when it comes to good music, it's talent that matters most - and that you too can be forever young. What else could we ask for?
(Well, just because we love you, you can read an interview with Sylvain Sylvain here.)
The album comes with a bonus DVD of unseen and live material too. If that's not enough to impress you - and if it's not, seriously, what is wrong with you? - you can also see the NYD live at the O2 Academy Newcastle (27 March), Manchester Club Academy (29 March), and two exclusive nights at The Old Vic Tunnels in London (30/31 March). Tickets are limited, so make sure to get yours as soon as possible!
