The New York Dolls Get Back On The Bike After Three Decades

The singer David Johansen spoke with Time Off magazine about the three long decades since that passed before the release of their new album ‘One Day It Will Please Us To Remember Even This’. “Playing in this band is kind of like falling off a bicycle – you never forget how to do it, you just kind of jump in and do it,” Johansen laughed. “There’s a film that these guys made about Arthur called New York Doll, and there’s a scene there about the first day we got back together and we just start playing, and the chemistry’s already there. We didn’t have to go anywhere because we were already there. So as far as making the record was concerned, the best kind of headspace to come from was ‘Let’s just be who we fu**ing are, and let’s play the fu**ing music that we fu**ing play, and if people don’t like it – fu** ’em!’.” The article at has since been removed.
