NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #335 ~ 12-31-22]

Pictured: The New York Dolls.

Melody Maker’s Roy Hollingworth pinpointed the Dolls’ delinquency as a form of truancy from meaning: ‘No messages. No instructions through song! Nothing to think about. Nothing to admire.’ The Dolls were Utterly Without Redeeming Social Value, to borrow the title of a 1967 low-budget movie. Their flip attitude to anything to do with causes or consciousness can be seen in a concert clip of the band in LA.. Johansen mentions the tour’s next stop is San Francisco, where, he notes mockingly, ‘people are into social reform’. When the Dolls arrive in ’Frisco and play their gig at The Matrix, he introduces ‘Private World’ and describes it as influenced by Cuban rumba. Recalling reading about Castro’s takeover of Cuba in newspapers as a child, Johansen jests about how ‘before those horrible Communists took over, they used to gamble and swing. Now all they do is build hospitals and work on the farm – and how boring is that.’
