Blondie: Pollinator

The jumpy “Doom or Destiny” opens Blondie’s 11th studio album, Pollinator. Lead singer/face-of-the-band Deborah Harry is in fine voice here, even though her voice is distorted slightly. It’s a solid, singable song to open this collection of 11 tracks. Despite enlisting a bunch of songwriters this time, the original Blondie members (Harry, guitarist Chris Stein, and drummer Clem Burke) create a pretty much spot-on, old-sounding Blondie record here.

The Split Squad Hits a Home Run Their First Time Up

Source: New York Music Daily

During spring training, baseball teams often field two different squads on the same day against different teams, to facilitate plenty of practice time for both the stars and the scrubs. Which explains the sarcasm in the Split Squad’s name: this retro rock supergroup includes keyboardist Josh Kantor from Steve Wynn’s Baseball Project as well as Blondie drummer Clem Burke, guitarists Keith Streng of ageless garage rockers the Fleshtones and Eddie Munoz from powerpop cult legends the Plimsouls along with bassist Michael Giblin. On their debut album Now Here This, the Split Squad goes back through fifty years of rock, plundering ...
