Playing Old Pretenders Songs Doesn't Turn On Chrissie Hynde At All


Chrissie Hynde Pretenders

Chrissie Hynde might be best known for her work with The Pretenders. And that’s hardly surprising considering she released nine albums with the band. But that doesn’t mean the singer wants to stand on stage and belt out old classics during her solo shows. 

Chrissie HyndeChrissie Hynde isn't turned on by the idea of playing old songs

"I won't be playing any of the old Pretenders songs. I can understand why there are acts out there playing all their old music, but it doesn't turn me on, not at all," she said. "If you're not making records that people want to buy any more, or that even speak for themselves, then play the hits. I'd rather do something that feels right, right now.

New York Doll Review


Good
The New York Dolls represent a curiosity in the history of rock music, a band that influenced many but never made a huge mark on its own. This small documentary tracks the rise and fall of the Dolls, focusing on Arthur "Killer" Kane, who became a Mormon after bottoming out of his drug addiction. Eventually the Dolls reunite to play a rough show, though "staging a comeback" is an awfully nice way to put it. If you're a fan of the group (or of enigmatic leader David Johansen, whose face now appears to be melting off his head), you'll enjoy the film. Others may not care enough to see it through.

Punk: Attitude Review


Excellent
At the start of Don Letts' excellent new documentary Punk: Attitude, ex-Black Flag-er and perennial curmudgeon Henry Rollins explains punk as being in essence one guy looking at the world he's living in and saying "Fuck this." A pithy summation of the movement, to be sure, and also quite a smart one, as this is one of the few films about the birth, death, and pseudo-revival of punk rock to actually acknowledge the genre's limitations (you can only say "Fuck this" while playing 90-second songs for so long), while simultaneously reveling in another trip down the antiestablishment memory road.

Most of the literature and documentaries on punk tend to start out in the same place, talking about how in the mid-1970s music had become this bloated, big-business monster, with pretentious arena rock bands playing 20-minute solos and so on - and then came The Ramones to shatter all that. Letts - a former producer and icon in the scene, as well as director of the authoritative documentary on The Clash, Westway to the World - digs deeper than that, going back to the 1960s and early '70s, finding the root of the coming musical uprising not just in expected places like The Velvet Underground, MC5, and Iggy Pop, but also in the jaggedly poppy sounds of many now mostly forgotten garage bands (whose sound is still inspiring post-punkers like The Hives). In describing the ascent of punk later in the '70s, Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra talks about how just about every smaller town and city had one guy who was into The Stooges and The Velvet Underground who then moved to the bigger cities, met up with all the other like-minded small-town new arrivals, and started bands.
