Lecture: Debbie Harry & Chris Stein (New York, 2013)
Interview with Debbie Harry & Chris Stein at the Red Bull Music Academy in New York.
Emerging from the New York punk scene, Chris Stein and Deborah Harry took the world by storm with their innovative production, sharp image and tales of urban heart break. As the songwriting partnership at the heart of Blondie, they penned some of the most definitive songs at the turn of the 80’s, mixing spiky guitars, raw synths, and driving drums that enraptured and inspired kids and rebels around the world.
With classic songs like “Hanging On The Telephone”, “Heart Of Glass”, “Rapture”, and “The Tide Is High”, they created their own sound from New York’s melting pot of punk, wave, reggae and hip hop, all shot through with Deborah Harry’s cool soul.
