Now to the goddam point, I decided a week back to watch Conan O'Brien for the first time in months and I was floored when he said at the beginning that the musical guest was none other than The New York Dolls. That was just the beginninng though. I nearly shit myself when he dropped the bombshell: the New York Dolls have a new album out as of July 25th! Its been over thirty years, but it's here.
The song they played was called Dance Like a Monkey, and it was straight off of the then unreleased album. The song was great. The band had all the style and swing you could ask for and David Johansen and Sylvain Sylvain haven't lost their wild charisma. Check out the performance here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=OYpSzCNJhFg&search=new%20york%20dolls
The new album's title is amouthful: 'One Day it Will Please Us to Remeber Even This'. I pirated it off of soulseek, but I will likely pick up the real thing soon. The rest of the songs on it sound great too. Raunchy and tough like they were in 1973. I'm totally loving it and it brings bak memories of being 15 with long hair and rocking out in my bedroom haha.
