BOOTLEG BLONDIE is the official Debbie Harry & Blondie tribute band, the only Blondie tribute to play the legendary CBGBs in New York City and unique in that not only have they had the honor to be thanked on Blondie’s 11th studio album ‘Pollinator’, but also toured the UK in 2019 with one of Blondie’s founding members, legendary drummer Clem Burke, to celebrate 40 years since the release of Blondie’s iconic album Parallel Lines!. This was a whirlwind of sell out shows, radio, press interviews and fab reviews, we drove nearly 3,000 miles and played to over 4,000 people! On a day off during our tour with Clem Burke, Andy and Clem wrote a song. They went into a studio in south London and recorded the song ‘Enigma Soho Au Go Go’. Debbie put down some vocals and the single was released in April of that year both online and on vinyl by Pop-Up Music. Awesome! Bootleg Blondie can be seen at all the major venues and festivals around the UK and Europe, having played the Isle Of Wight Festival, the 100 Club, the Hammersmith Palais and the Electric Ballroom in London, Eric’s in Liverpool and have played with amongst others The Undertones, Slade, Bad Manners, The Beat, Heaven 17, Toyah, Hazel O’Connor, Visage, Bananarama, Altered Images, Howard Jones, Chas and Dave, Tony Hadley, Debbie Harris and the boys have met the REAL Blondie many times, Debbie Harry wished us good luck with our show for our gig at CBGB and when Clem Burke heard that we were making a replica of his Premier drum kit, he arranged to meet and sign our bass drum skin which we use at all of our shows. ‘During the 2010 Blondie tour of the UK we took Clem out for a trip around London in our tour bus, he signed that too!!!!’
