Reviews Review Policy. Flag as inappropriate. See more. Stiv Bators. The previous reviewer noted, correctly, this is not the lurching buzzsaw guitar slinger Thunders. This is akin to the second NY Dolls album pop kulcher mashup. David Johansen wasn't the only Doll with encyclopedic knowledge of pop tunes from back in the day.
So if you're craving Johnny's raucous excess and careening off the rails riffing, stop reading and look elsewhere. He became notorious for all the wrong reasons. She has that Shangrilas catch in the back of the throat so necessary to deliver "He Cried," an over-the-top teenage angst fest. Their voices sound so good together. Patti inspires Johnny to actually sing.
It's not his usual whining sneer. He really cuts loose here. This is not Manhattan music. These are songs from a simpler time. Maybe Johnny was nostalgic for lost innocence? Copy Cats can sit proudly next to So Alone as something Johnny could've been proud of. Two albums with the Dolls; one with the Heartbreakers; three solo studio albums; a gazillion bootlegs from live shows ranging from spectacular to shambolic. A legendary dope fiend. Limitless unrealized potential.
Johnny, I Was Born To Cry - Johnny Thunders & Patti Palladin - Copy Cats loved you. This is an affectionate album from of cover tunes that Johnny and his co-star, Patti Palladin from the group Snatch, pull off with style. A warm, wonderfully-executed set from start to finish, and a totally unexpected turn in the Johnny Thunders saga.
While these covers showcase the various talents and complex emotions of the year-old Johnny Thunders, who had by this time experienced more than his fair share of I Was Born To Cry - Johnny Thunders & Patti Palladin - Copy Cats ups and downs, John Genzale, the cocky Italian kid from Queens, can be heard too It all adds up to classic Johnny Thunders: the slightly soused black-clad crooner with the sneer on his lip and the heart on his sleeve. There is so much joy in this cd, and it is almost reassuring to know that Johnny Thunders could still reach that emotion in the late 80's.
At the time of recording, the poor man had loved and lost big time. And even if he was more notorious than Keef, Thunders delivered an authentic and polished Küss Die Hand Schöne Frau - Erste Allgemeine Verunsicherung* - Best Of EAV that even the Stones would have loved to phone in from France at the time.
The collaboration with Patti Palladin is perfect, innocently romantic and street sexy at the same I Was Born To Cry - Johnny Thunders & Patti Palladin - Copy Cats. I hope she loved him. These two - Johnny and Patti, have the I Was Born To Cry - Johnny Thunders & Patti Palladin - Copy Cats of the others, while creating something entirely original. Maybe this was as close as Thunders ever got to that New Orleans dream band he was finally ready to assemble on the eve of his death.
Because here, in this cd, lies that swamp rock sound with a cherry on top and a smile on the side. Perhaps Thunders was the last of a rock breed, able like Elvis to terrify your parents one day, and then turn around and sing a ballad that made them Kangen - Inul Daratista - Separuh Nafas twice the next.
