The HEARTBREAKERS – ” The Yonkers Demo’s “

Posted: September 19, 2022 in MUSIC

The Heartbreakers, were also known as Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers, An American punk rock band, formed in New York City in May, 1975. The band spearheaded the first wave of punk rock. The first recordings from the hugely influential New York born garage punk band The Heartbreakers who would live on as the support band behind ex-NY Doll Johnny Thunders!.

These are the only recordings featuring the lineup of Richard Hell, Johnny Thunders, Walter Lure and Jerry Nolan!

A definitive collection focused on Richard Hell’s brief time with the Heartbreakers. We’ve never had this demo set released in its entirely before, and there’s a few “new” tracks to me in the live material, too. Sound quality is so-so, but the energy is palpable throughout. The CD version includes rare live tracks from the band’s early years performing at legendary New York venues CBGBs and Mothers!, Includes full liner notes from Dave Thompson!

Originally released August 9th, 2019
