Forever Now

The P-Furs release their third album on September 25, 1982 …

It’s produced by Todd Rundgren who also shows up as guest musician on a number of tracks.

Parallel Lines

Musically, Blondie were hopelessly horrible when we first began rehearsing for Parallel Lines, and in terms of my attitude they didn’t know what had hit them. I basically went in there like Adolf Hitler and said, ‘You are going to make a great record, and that means you’re going to start playing better.'”

Mike Chapman, in an interview for Sound on Sound, recalling Blondie’s initial musical inexperience

Blondie releases their US-breakthrough album — and their most successful album — on September 23, 1978. It’s #140 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
