Surviving New York Dolls members, David Johansen, and Sylvain Sylvain, were joined by bassist Sami Yaffa (Hanoi Rocks), guitarist Steve Conte (Crown Jewels), drummer Brian Delaney and keyboardist Brian Koonin.
Usually reunion records scare me off, but I couldn’t pass up on checking out the latest disc by a band that I consider the godfathers of glam. Amazingly, this record does not disappoint. It is one solid record from beginning to end. This disc has a big classic rock sound, with upbeat songs that are pleasingly good.
The band even released a couple of videos for this record, which I doubt you ever got to see, if you live in the United States.
Dance Like a Monkey
Get Away from Tommy
This record will please all New York Dolls fans, and quite a few people that are interested in checking out this band for the first time. This isn’t a hard rock record by any means, but it is a very good rock and roll record, and deserves to be heard by all glam fans!
