About the New York Dolls:

This is what you need to know the New York Dolls were the first and the best, and that hasnt changed.

When the Dolls whipped their first long-player on an unsuspecting world in 1973, they were positively terrifying. Next to the Dolls, the other so-called glam boys who clogged the pages of Creem magazine looked like spoiled children who had just toodled home from ballet class. The New York Dolls are just as pretty as they want to be. They walk tall, with or without the platform boots and puffed-up hair. And they can still kick your ass. You better pray for the RocknRoll nurse.

You do. You even put an exclamation mark at the end of your message informing me that they were coming, which means you definitely want to go.

I am one to stand by my use of punctuation. I could have that on my tombstone.

I like the idea of them coming a lot, although I'm not a massve fan.

I did enjoy the film about Arthur Kane, but he'll be too deceased to take part. It'll definitely be an event though!!!!

This is the same night as The Low Anthem. So now that enters my decision tree alongside pondering whether seeing the NYD in 2010 would be a good thing or not....

Get yourself along, they were awesome at Rebellion despite dodgy sound. Lemon Tree stage is going to be seriously tight given how much they move around on stage.

I'm thinking I'll go see The Low Anthem, tbh...

Youd probably be able to catch both depending on number of supports and lateness at Tunnels.

One support. No plans for general lateness. Sorry for hijack, Steven. Carry on.

It was a tough choice, but it's the New York Dolls! (sort of)

But is it really....? To be fair if it wasn't for The Low Anthem curiosity might still have made me go to this one

I know all promoters say this and usually Id try to avoid doing but its worth pointing out tickets are selling very well for this so if your swithering id say to get in early.

Graeme - no worries re hijack - its a shame its same night but only night i could get them.

Like a lot of others ill be trying to do both gigs - but avoiding booze as i have to move flat first thing the next day and will likely be nursing a post Wizard hangover.

Theres a decent documentary on New York music on I-player at the moment which has a fair chunk on the NYDolls in it which i found interesting and quite timely i guess with them currently doing the rounds - you can check it out here:

BBC iPlayer - Once Upon a Time in New York: The Birth of Hip Hop, Disco and Punk

And another one which is all performances of various acts:

BBC iPlayer - New York Rock at the BBC
