Blondie : Nothing is real but the girl

First loves never die, they say, and crikey, did I love [a]Blondie[/a] when I was 13. So yeah, it is heartening to learn that their recent comeback album shifted a million copies in just three weeks and that the band play their first UK arena shows later this month. Only a mean-minded poltroon would begrudge such a spectacular rebirth, but only a cloth-eared android could pretend that 'Nothing Is Real...' is anything more than genetically-modified [a]Blondie[/a] substitute cloned from the leftover DNA of their immortal sex-disco ancestors. First loves never die, they just go a bit mouldy around the edges.
