The Sex Pistols vrs. Richard Hell and The Voidoids...?
The big difference is The Voidoids were talented and experienced musicians. They were a truly great band.
And Richard, and the others well., Ivan and Quinn could actually write and construct great songs., with great lryics.
I do believe that MacLaren wanted the Pistols to write a "Blank Generation" type song., he was all bussiness,. he wanted a PUNK Monkees, he wanted to put together something he could sell besides his clothes., maybe he was frustrated from KILLING the NY Dolls. I think he fancied himself the Brian Epstien of PUNK
The Pistols don't seem too Bay City., werent they some bubble-gum pussy band?
I like that Thunders wrote in response to the whole Pistols 'thing' "Little London Boys", even though he did befriend and later play with some of them
As for Blank Generation, I dont think its at all about New York., and anyway I hate to break it to anyone that dosen't know this Richard didnt really come up with the song by himself,
He sorta "borrowed" some of it from a movie from the 50s called "Beat Generation" a movie about beatkniks and it had a title song and some of the words went "I belong to the beat generation and I can do what I want', something like that, the song, the original one, is in a documentry about life post war in the 50s in America based on
a book written by David Halberstien. But only that part when he gets into I was saying let (get?) me outta here ect thats all Richard.
But its not about NY.., but I'm not Richard ask him what its about, why do you think its about NY?
The Pistols so borrowed from The Voidoids. Wea
ther you prefer one to another is a personale thing I guess
but the Pistols abilities and almost everything are a joke next to The Voidoids. The Voidoids were a really great band, really dissapointing when they broke up.
Okay whos gonna yell at me now..go ahead..,
And believe it or not I did like "never Mind the Bollocks" but I cant play that to often,
But who cares what I say.,
