THE LONG BLONDES



First off, THE LONG BLONDES should not be confused with THE LONG WINTERS. THE LONG BLONDES are a new wave-influenced, art-rock collective from Sheffield, England -- home to one of my favorite groups of all time, PULP. Little wonder, then, that former Pulpster STEVE MACKEY served as producer for the THE LONG BLONDES' debut album, SOMEONE TO DRIVE YOU HOME.

Led by sly, not-at-all-shy singer KATE JACKSON -- who I'm pretty sure is NOT the KATE JACKSON who starred on the '70s TV show CHARLIE'S ANGELS -- THE LONG BLONDES have been making positive waves in their home country with their aggressive-yet-poppy, girl-centric brand of rock. Fans of CATATONIA and "LADYKILLERS"-era LUSH should take note.
