Here's a nice one-two, if you're you're at all into Johnny Thunders, the Heartbreakers, or Richard Hell. It's the original Heartbreakers line up, when Richard Hell was still in the band. The clip linked below is the only one I remember seeing of them from that early on, around '75-'76. Johnny Thunders still had his Dolls rats nest thing going on There's also a link to some early demos of the Heartbreakers with Hell, including songs that ended up on Hell's debut album. If you're familiar with all of these guys, you'll want to hassle with the download; if nothing more than to hear "Love Comes In Spurts" and "Blank Generation" with Thunders playing guitar. Juxtapose that with the versions by Hell and the Voidoids' versions, with Robert Quine on guitar. You be the judge. Or don't. It's kind of apples and oranges.
