Blank Generation (40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

Richard Hell & The Voidoids

Blank Generation (40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) Default Title

Rhino/Warner Bros. -  [2LP] (booklet, previously unreleased tracks, limited to 2500, indie-retail exclusive)

Consistently heralded as one of the most influential punk albums of all time, Richard Hell & The Voidoid's ''Blank Generation'' celebrates its 40th anniversary this year with a 2CD and 2LP deluxe release for Black Friday, Record Store Day. Along with the Ramones, Television, Blondie and Talking Heads, Richard Hell and his band (Robert Quine - later of Television - Ivan Julian and Marc ''Marky Ramone'' Bell ) came to define the early New York ''first wave'' punk scene. The song ''Blank Generation'' became a slogan and an anthem and later was appropriated by the Sex Pistols for their track, ''Pretty Vacant.'' Both groundbreakingly literate and criminally neglected by most critics when it first came out, the music sounds as fresh and abrasive today as when it was first released. With participation from Richard Hell, the album will be remastered and packaged as it was originally released in 1977 (unlike subsequent reissues) with a second disc of previously unreleased tracks including alternate studio versions, out of print singles and rare bootleg live tracks from their first appearance at CBGBs. The booklet will contain additional photos (the iconic cover was shot by Richard's ex-girlfriend, CBGB's ''house'' photographer Roberta Bayley) with memorabilia and liners from Richard.
