Biography

The feisty ambition of ex-Playboy Bunny Deborah Harry and her mop topped male colleagues has paid off. A quarter of a century after their debut, Blondie are rightly acclaimed as one of the most influential bands of their generation. They also became the most commercially successful act of the entire Punk and New Wave scene. Though it didn’t exactly happen overnight.

Eat To The Beat is the most loved Blondie album among many Blondie fans. Eat To The Beat was the follow up of their millions sold Parallel Lines album. The Parallel Lines singles: Heart Of Glass and Sunday Girl had topped the british charts and then Blondie continued their hits with the #2(UK) single Dreaming and the UK #1 Atomic two real BLONDIE CLASSICS featured on Eat To The Beat. Two more singles where drawn from Eat To The Beat: UK single Union City Blue and the US single The Hardest Part. Furthermore on this album: Slow Motion which easily could have been the fifth major hit on Eat To The Beat, if it wasn't for Call Me (a non album single which was released right after Atomic)hitted the number one spot in the USA and UK. Shayla a beautiful ballad! The reggea tinted Die Young Stay Pretty is Blondie's first attempt in reggea which is georgeous by the way! The title track Eat To The Beat is a country rock song. Accidents Never Happen is a very haunting song which brings you to a fancy meeting in a smaller world! The last two songs on the album: Victor and Living In The Real World are pure punk/new wave, great !!! The only weak track is to my opinion the lullaby Sound-A-Sleep. The bonus tracks are very ok too !! featuring the Johny Cash cover Ring Of Fire and the David Bowie's cover Heroes both performed live as a bonus on Eat To The Beat !! AN AWESOME ALBUM !!! IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT ALREADY: BUY IT !!!!!!

From the minute I heard the first single from this album - which was called "Dreaming" I knew that this album was going to pack a lot more punch than its predecessor "Parallel Lines". Strongest songs on here include the much underrated "Union City Blue", "Slow Motion" which implies itself as Sixties orientated with Phil Spector suggested melodies and lyrics, the title track which would have made a cracking single, the brilliant new wave disco of Atomic I believe was written about a race horse, and the most harrowing track on the album, "Victor" about a fugitive who leaves Debbie Harry devastated and screaming about her impending desolation. The chorus is of course sung well by Debbie, but the song "Victor" carries the group's own brand of pathos into a new direction. It almost goes hand in hand with "Atomic" and its strident nuclear dreams.

The outstanding feature of Eat To The Beat is the immaculate drumming of Clem Burke which makes this album rock like no other Blondie record. The three singles Dreaming, Union City Blue and Atomic are familiar to everyone. But any of the songs here could just as easily have been worldwide hits - the beautiful Shayla, the catchy pop of Slow Motion and sweeping rock of Accidents Never Happen wouldn't be out of place on any Best of Blondie compilation. There are also several classic Blondie new wave thrashes, the best of which are Living In The Real World and the title track. The only hint at what was to come is the cod reggae of Die Young Stay Pretty. Blondie were never this good again, but then neither was anyone else.

Eat to the Beat, is such a power pop album, it amazes me it didn't sell as well as "Parallel Lines". Although the album was a British #1 in 1979. Eat to the Beat is a strong album of Lyrical content and some of the best music scores ever put to Vinyl. Tracks like "Dreaming", "Atomic" and "Shayla" are simply outstanding rock classics. There was 4 single releases off "Eat to the Beat" in 1979-80. "Atomic" #1UK, "Union City Blue" #12 UK, "Dreaming" #2 UK and "The Hardest Part" #84 US. The album was made into a full length video in 1979, the first artist ever to do this. Blondie was most definately an Innovative and Original band. Deborah Harry's vocals on "Dreaming" and "Atomic" are sexy and simply brilliant. Deborah seems vulnerable and child like on songs like "Shayla" and "Union City Blue". Stand out tracks are definately "Atomic", "Dreaming", "Shayla" and the incredible funky "The Hardest Part". Without a doubt, this is a consumers buy, full of hits and great album tracks.

'Eat To The Beat' was Blondie's fourth album, released in 1979, when the band was a household name. It built on their all-consuming rise with four hit singles: the beautiful 'Dreaming', the edgy, cool, rockiness of 'The Hardest Part', 'Union City Blue' is typical Blondie-esque rock, elemental and full of vivid images, and finally, disco-rock classic 'Atomic'.
Without a doubt, changes have been made since the upbeat pop of the previous LP, 'Parallel Lines'. 'Eat To The Beat' is for the main part, pure rock from the word go. Check out 'Victor'- Debbie's primal screams over a powerful guitar riff and thundering drums. Perhaps the only downfall is 'Sound-A-Sleep', which can, quite literally, put you to sleep. That aside, there's no point mentioning standout tracks; every cut is uniquely brilliant.
Bonuses are live performances of 'Die Young Stay Pretty', 'Seven Rooms Of Gloom', David Bowie's 'Heroes' and old country classic 'Ring Of Fire'.
In short, 'Eat To The Beat' is pure fun, high-energy rock tunes, every one made special by this amazing band. This was the first Blondie album I ever bought on CD and, in my opinion, it's every bit as good as 'Parallel Lines' and maybe even surpasses it. Definitely up there with the best.
