Music lovers the news is in, fans of Glam, Punk and rock n’ roll look no further as here is an event that will sweeten your lobes as Sylvain Sylvain of The New York Dolls is gonna be in town on 25th July at the legendary 100 club in London for a night of swinging tunes from the creative Dolls Guitarslinger. Expect
classic Dolls numbers he penned such as the anthemed “Trash” the ludicrous gem that is “Puss n’ Boots” and the monster that is “Frankenstein” from his New York Dolls repertoire which he co wrote with David Johansen
and went on to write other greats for Johansen’s solo stuff such as “Frenchette” and “Funky But Chic” which he went to do after The Dolls first split in 1975. In 1979 Slyvain released his first solo album which featured “Teenage News” which Morrissey covered when he was in The Nosebleeds. Talking of which Morrissey got the Dolls to reform for his 2004 Meltdown Festival which featured Gary Powell of The Libertines on Drums and he’s back playing with Sylvain in his new line-up. I would expect Sylvain to be playing his current stuff such as the recent “Leaving New York”.
Supporting Sylvains Dolls are “The Duel” Now-Wave Proto Punks from London fronted by femme Tara Rez they will be unleashing their 21st century signature themes of positivity and will also add a touch of glam to the proceedings.The Duel are currently finishing off Album no 5 and about to start a residency at Londons Madame Jo-Jos
Also the night shall be starting off with “The Bears” who will be playing old school punk from their catalogue l can’t workout if this is the same Bears that came out of Watford in the 70s if it is this will make things very interesting indeed
