No other female fronted band has ever beaten Blondie with their string of hits and run of success. Blondie had six UK number one singles, two UK number one albums and six top ten albums, and Heart Of Glass alone sold over a million copies! Few acts can match their 20 year span of number one hits.
Blondie emerged as the great pop icons of the late '70s new wave punk scene by defying easy categorisation. They scored their first major hits with reggae, rock/disco and hip-hop songs. They wrote great rock hooks and brilliant ironic lyrics. They had the hippest clothes and the coolest hair, blonde bombshell Debbie went from the pages of Punk magazine to being on the cover of just about every mainstream publication on the news stands! 2008 was the 30th Anniversary of the fantastic album Parallel Lines and saw Blondie performing a world tour including major UK sold out dates. Again, 2010 saw them coming back to the UK again on tour.
Cardiff based Atomic Blondie, formed in 2006 are hotly tipped as one of the UK's leading Blondie tribute bands. Our Debz see's 2014 as her 10th year of impersonating Blonde-Icon Debbie Harry. They have performed all over the UK and Europe and has also had the pleasure of featuring on tour with the legendary Slade and Roy Wood on a regular basis, plus performances with Showaddywaddy, Dr & The Medics, Katrina & The Waves, Alvin Stardust and Bad Manners! Our Debz has also had the pleasure of performing for top musician and member of Yes Rick Wakeman plus an event for the cast of BBC 1's Eastenders (to name a few!).
The Band consists of dedicated professional musicians all with years of experience.
May 2010 saw them play Europes biggest tribute festival where they were the only female fronted tribute to play the main stage over the three day event - this followed with them appearing in The Sun newspaper on the coverage of the event. From November 2010 to present Atomic Blondie's photo is also being used in major tabloid newspapers for advertising of a major hotel chain (including The Daily Mail and Express).
