The Pretenders have a new album out. I think the only actual Pretender involved is Chrissie Hynde. It struck me that the backing band sound very much like Iggy Pop’s for Lust For Life. That band was, essentially, Tin Machine, David Bowie and all.
Not a bad album, in my view. Loving the simplicity, the grunginess and the noisy tub-thumping.
I wondered if any other bands have morphed into another. One other example I could think of was The Meters into Little Feat, or vice versa.
