Rewind: Blondie “Goldfinger” (live)

Next week we will be attending the Alive! music festival here in Lisbon where acts such as Patrick Wolf, Anna Calvi, These New Puritans and James Blake are playing. One of the headliners are Blondie and, as a huge fan of their records from the 70’s and early 80’s, the expectations are quite high. Time for a little rewind then, this time to present Blondie covering Shirlie Bassey’s James Bond classic Goldfinger. This performance was recorded back in 1977 for legendary german tv show Musikladen and it’s pure perfection: those spooky keyboards, Clem Burke hammering the drums, Debby’s powerful vocal performance (one of the best voices from the last 40 years if you ask this writer), her cool stage presence, it’s all too damn good. Bring on that live show…
