Release Date: 09/03/21
Walter Lure, co-frontman in Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers, with his band The Waldos. 1994 album + 4 bonus tracks
Walter Lure, best known as co-frontman and songwriter of the Heartbreakers, also led his own band, The Waldos. Their debut 'Rent Party' was released in 1994. This reissue CD has four bonus tracks, from the 'Crazy Little Baby' 7' of 1991 and two from a 1979 single released by 'The Blessed'.
Sadly, Walter died in August 2020, the last of the 'L.A.M.F.' Heartbreakers. His memoir 'To Hell And Back: My Life In Johnny Thunders' Heartbreakers - In The Words Of The Last Man Standing' will be published by Backbeat in paperback edition on June 1, 2021. Upon the original 'Rent Party' release, AllMusic.com said - 'The long awaited Waldos album proved to be a big success, at least artistically ... the Waldos tear through a set of tunes that are as much fun as a CD can have with its clothes on.'
Walter Lure's guitar-sparring partner in The Waldos in place of Johnny Thunders is Joey Pinter, whose self-titled solo album was released in 2015. The rest of the band is the late Tony Coiro on bass and Jeff West on drums except on the bonus 7' tracks, the late Charlie Sox.
The album features six Walter Lure originals, plus covers of Jerry Nolan, Gary US Bonds, Claudine Clark and Ray Charles songs.
