Sylvain Sylvain of legendary New York Dolls fame is playing a solo acoustic show at Hare & Hounds on Wednesday 24th July.

Sylvain is one of the creative members of the truly trend setting inspirational band of the seventies, The New York Dolls. Their visual style influenced the sound and the look of many new wave and 1980s-era glam metal groups, and they were at pinnacle the local New York scene that later spawned The Ramones, Blondie, Television and Talking Heads.

The band was influenced by vintage rhythm and blues the early Rolling Stones, classic American girl group songs, and protopunk bands such as the MC5 and The Stooges, as well as glam rockers such as Marc Bolan. In synthesizing this wide variety of influences they created something which critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote “doesn’t really sound like anything that came before it. It’s hard rock with a self-conscious wit, a celebration of camp and kitsch that retains a menacing, malevolent edge.”

After splitting in 1975 Sylvain went onto record solo albums and write songs for David Johanson solo albums. Then in 2004 Morrissey asked them to play Meltdown Festival in London and the band reformed for more shows including the O2 Wireless Festival and Lounge on the Farm in the UK in 2008.

Now Sylvain Sylvain is going back out on the road with his version of the New York Dolls. He will be playing classic Dolls tunes as well as his own new material including the latest single ‘Leaving New York’.
