Blondie And The Beast

Paul Morley, New Musical Express, 2 September 1978

DEBBIE HARRY: a few more brisk calculations in the dry equation, and she will be a star. A household name. An object. An illusion. Well designed, well marketed. It's a modern story, of manipulation and desires, of repression and escapism, of cosmetics, the media, sex...and short, sharp pop music/muzak.
