About New York Dolls ticketsIt's been a long time and a lot of water under the bridge since the New York Dolls trolled the New York underground, cranking out songs about disillusionment and subculture, dressing in glam costumes and makeup and breaking new ground with their punk style that established longstanding trends. New York Dolls first perked up back in 1971 when singer Sylvain Sylvain and drummer Billy Murcia, who had attended school together and played in bands for several years, recruited bassist Johnny Thunders (who quickly learned guitar) and called themselves Dolls. The original New York Dolls, with Sylvain Sylvain off and on (then finally on, permanently), singer David Johansen, Thunders on guitar, bassist Arthur 'Killer' Kane and Murcia, concocted a sound rooted in rhythm and blues and early rock and roll, but laced with post-psychedelic punk, a la The Stooges. Their stage presence, then and now, is raucous and aggressive, though the glam part of their act was left behind with the 1970s. Johansen on stage has always revealed his Mick Jagger influence, though his vocal delivery is much edgier. Whatever the origins of their sound, critics and fans have always agreed, the New York Dolls were creating music in their early days quite unlike anything that had come before them. The New York Dolls' first album, New York Dolls was released in 1973, produced by Todd Rundgren, and established an immediate following for the counter-culture band. They followed that album with Too Much Too Soon in 1974, perhaps channeling their attitude at the time. Drugs and disagreements among band members, and the fact they were dropped by Mercury Records led to the band's breakup. Or, rather, a nearly 30-year hiatus. In 2004, three of the original surviving New York Dolls, Johansen, Sylvain and Kane, were pulled together by singer Morrissey, who had been a fan of the band in the 1970s, for the Meltdown Festival. That led to a new recording on Morrissey's label, and two more albums since. Today's New York Dolls still give a rocking live show, and New York Dolls tickets will give you a glimpse of punk's origins with new material thrown in.
