LOTF Saturday 12th July 2008 - Cowshed - New York Dolls
The New York Dolls are an American glam punk band formed in New York City, United States in 1971. In 2004 the band reformed with three of their original members, two of whom, David Johansen and Sylvain Sylvain, continue on today and released a new album in 2006. The original bassist, Arthur Kane died shortly after their first reunion concert.
The band's protopunk sound prefigured much of what was to come in the punk rock era; their visual style influenced the look of many new wave and 1980s-era glam metal groups, and they began the local New York scene that later spawned the Ramones, Blondie, Television, and Talking Heads.
Sylvain Sylvain and Billy Murcia, who went to junior high school and high school together, started playing in a band called “the Pox” in 1968. After the frontman quit, Murcia and Sylvain started a clothing business across the street from a doll repair shop called the New York Doll Hospital. Sylvain claimed inspired them to come up with the name for their future band. In 1970 they formed a band again and they recruited Thunders to join on bass though Sylvain ended up teaching him to play guitar, they called themselves the ‘Dolls’. When Sylvain left the band to spend a few months in London, Thunders and Murcia went their separate ways.
Thunders was eventually recruited by Kane and Rivets who had been playing together in the Bronx. At Thunders' sestion, Murcia replaced the original drummer. Thunders played lead guitar and sang for the band known as Actress. An October 1971 rehearsal tape recorded by Rivets was released as Dawn of the Dolls. When Thunders decided he no longer wanted to be the front man, Johansen joined the band. Initially, the group was composed of singer David Johansen, guitarists Johnny Thunders and Rick Rivets (who was replaced by Sylvain Sylvain after a few months), bass guitarist Arthur "Killer" Kane and drummer Billy Murcia. The original lineup's first performance was on Christmas Eve 1971 at a homeless shelter, the Endicott Hotel.
The band was influenced by vintage rhythm and blues, the early Rolling Stones, classic American girl group songs, and anarchic post-psychedelic bands such as the MC5 and the Stooges, as well as then-current glam rockers such as Marc Bolan. They did it their own way, creating something which critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote "doesn't really sound like anything that came before it. It's hard rock with a self-conscious wit, a celebration of camp and kitsch that retains a menacing, malevolent edge.". Despite their impeccable rock/punk/glam credentials, the band`s sound was also formed by blues and soul influences, as evidenced by Johansen`s bluesy harmonica and their choice of cover versions - their version of Bo Diddley`s `Pills` appears on `New York Dolls` and The Drells `There`s Gonna Be a Showdown` and Sonny Boy Williamson`s `Don`t start Me Talking` are among the four cover versions on `Too Much Too Soon`. Their previously unreleased covers of Otis Redding`s `Don`t Mess With Cupid` and Muddy Water`s `Hoochie Coochie Man` later surfaced on `Lipstick Killers` and `I`m a Human Being` respectively. The black music influence was particularly important for Johansen, whose subsequent career included work with jazz man Big Jay McNeely and blues man Hubert Sumlin.
As a frontman, Johansen's aggression, wit and energy made up for what was a slightly one-dimensional singing voice, while Thunders's lead playing was compared to the slashing of a knife-fight. Their repertoire was mostly written by Johansen (he used the name David Jo Hansen at the time) and Thunders and occasionally by Johansen and Sylvain. The songs were a series of vignettes about life in the New York underground. After getting a manager and attracting some music industry interest, the band got a break when Rod Stewart invited them to open for him at a London (then glam rock's capital city) concert. Shortly thereafter, Murcia died of accidental suffocation at age 21 after he passed out from drugs and alcohol.
Once back in New York, the Dolls auditioned drummers, including Marc Bell (who would go on to play with Richard Hell and Ramones under the stage name "Marky Ramone") and Jerry Nolan, a friend of the band. They selected Nolan, and after US Mercury Records' A&R man Paul Nelson signed them, they began sessions for their debut album. New York Dolls was produced by former Nazz guitarist Todd Rundgren. In an interview in Creem magazine, Rundgren says he barely touched the recording, everybody was debating how to do the mix. sales were slish, especially in the glam-resistant middle US, and Stereo Review magazine reviewer in 1973 compared the Dolls' guitar playing to the sound of lawnmowers.
The Dolls still polarised America's mass rock audience (a Creem magazine poll landed them wins as the best and the worst new group of 1973), but at the 'large capacity club' level, they toured the US to some satisfaction. The Dolls also toured Europe, and
cassie had a baby this year, almost two months ago
his name is parker and i held him for the first time today, for an hour and a half
i did not watch the movie i watched him
sleeping in my hands
his tiny chest moving up and down
his little hands opening and closing over the empty air
watching him sleep was the closest thing to a spiritual experience that i've felt in ages, really
i wanted to tell him a million things but i cannot explain them because he is just a baby but then i think about it and i think, i cannot explain these things because i am just a baby and no matter how old i get i will never be able to explain any of this to anyone, let alone a little helpless baby
if babies are lucky they get to soak up love all day like a sponge from every corner, and they don't have to do anything to get it, all they have to do is exist
because the rest of their life is not going to be this easy, most likely they are going to have to give people a reason to love them and that is hard work sometimes
i wanted to hold him for a long, long time
he was beautiful and cassie is a very gentle, calm, loving mother and i was amazed at the change i saw inside of her, and i'm really proud of her
