BLONDIE HAVE MORE FUN

DEBBIE HARRY AND CHRIS STEIN FIRST TOPPED THE UK CHARTS IN 1978 AND, DESPITE SOME SETBACKS, THEIR GROUP BLONDIE HAVE REMAINED RELEVANT FOR ALMOST 40 YEARS. AND NOW THEY ARE BACK WITH A NEW ALBUM

STYLING: NICK BYAM

There aren’t many bands — especially ones who trade so heavily in the art of cool — that can rustle up a relevant-sounding album 40 years after they irst dominated every chart (and gay danceloor) on the planet. But that’s exactly what Blondie have done.

Debbie Harry and Chris Stein, aged 71 and 67 respectively, swagger into Attitude’s photoshoot in East London buoyed up by a cache of potential new hits, written by the likes of Charlie XCX and Sia. And we can’t help noticing that they give off a distinct air of WDGAF (we don’t give a fuck).

And why should they? The words “legend” and “icon” are chucked around so freely these days that they’ve lost their impact, but in the presence of Blondie it’s hard not to be affected by their thrilling sense of cool. Sure, I’ve had lots of giggles interviewing Katy Perry and Ariana Grande, but there is something truly epic about watching Debbie Harry devastate a room full of hardened media professionals.
