The Pretenders – “Boots of Chinese Plastic”

Illusion fills my head like an empty can
spent a million lifetimes loving the same man

So, Chrissie Hynde is a Yeah Yeah Yeahs wannabe?

Fucking hell … Chrissie Hynde could be, and maybe is, the granny of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs !

This is an amazing punk pop classic from granny Chrissie and the band!

It’s The Pretenders’ wonderful “Boots of Chinese Plastic”, which kicks off their great new comeback album, “Break Up the Concrete”!

We’ve always liked The Pretenders! But we fucking love this!

They sound so reinvigorated! So fucking real! So crucial!

“Boots of Chinese Plastic” is Dylan’s wonderful “Tombstone Blues” wrung through the wringer. And then some!

Of course the title “Boots of Chinese Plastic” is a tribute to and/or piss-take on Dylan’s classic “Boots of Spanish Leather” !

The music is a punked up “Tombstone Blues”, while the lyrics are, let’s say “influenced“, by Bob’s most recent original meisterwerk , 2006’s sublime “Modern Times“! (You could also say “ripped off”! …. but I won’t! … oops, maybe I did!)

Anyway, it’s excellent! We fucking love it!

Check a great Dylan performance of “Boots of Spanish Leather” here!

1,2,3,4 Nam Myoho Renge Kyo Buddha please
can you help a little peasant that’s begging on her knees
illusion fills my head like an empty can
spent a million lifetimes loving the same man

Whoa! Every drop that run through the vein
always makes it’s way back to the heart again
and by the way you look fantastic
in your boots of chinese plastic

Hare Krishna, Hare Rama too,
Govinda I am still in love with you
I see you in the birds and in the trees
that’s why they call me Krishna Mayee

Whoa! Every drop that run through the vein
always makes it’s way back to the heart again
and by the way you look fantastic
in your boots of chinese plastic

Hofra told us we should tolerate
the people and the things that make me wanna hate
oh have a little mixed mercy on me,
this seasoned beauty in this human pageantry
Jesus Christ came down here as a living man
if he can live a life of virtue then I hope I can
unto others as you would have a turn
back here and repeat until you learn, learn, learn

Whoa! Every drop that run through the vein
always makes it’s way back to the heart again
every dog that lived his life on a chain
knows what it’s like WAITING FOR NOTHING!

and by the way you look fantastic
in your boots of chinese plastic

The title of “Boots of Chinese Plastic,” which leads off the Pretenders’ new album, “Break Up the Concrete” (Shangri-La), alludes to Bob Dylan’s “Boots of Spanish Leather,” but the song’s propulsive rhythm and surreal lyrics mark it as a close cousin to another Dylan song, “Tombstone Blues.” In just over two and a half minutes, the lead singer and songwriter, Chrissie Hynde, touches on everything from reincarnation to the global marketplace to the difficulties of ethical living. The next song, “The Nothing Maker,” supplies some yin to go with the yang: it’s a ballad about a lover whose greatest asset seems to be his lack of creative ambitions, sung with a dreaminess that may be concealing a deeper venom.

“Break Up the Concrete” is the first album of new material from the Pretenders since “Loose Screw,” in 2002, and while that record found the band going for a seductive reggae vibe, this time the charge is straightforward roots rock. For years, the Pretenders have been a band in name only, consisting of a bunch of young hired hands doing the bidding of Hynde and, usually, the founding drummer, Martin Chambers. This time, Chambers is absent, though his replacement—the session veteran Jim Keltner—is a great deal more than capable. That’s true of the entire band, in fact: the English guitarist James Walbourne, the pedal-steel player Eric Heywood, and the bassist Nick Wilkinson. The punky “Don’t Cut Your Hair” blasts first and asks questions later; “Almost Perfect” steals along with a lovely tiptoe movement.

The band’s enthusiasm is easy to understand; Hynde has written a superb set of songs here. Her persona is largely the same as it was on the band’s 1979 début, which is to say that it is tough and smart and confident and questioning and vulgar and philosophical and energetic and weary all at once. The songs gain immediacy through direct address (“Don’t Cut Your Hair,” “You Didn’t Have To,” “Rosalee”), and the exceptions tend to be irresistible pop songs like “Love’s a Mystery,” in which Hynde employs a slightly elevated class of moon-June-spoon rhymes (morning/warning, mystery/history), but with the added benefit of context, sensibility, wisdom, and her nearly undiminished upper register. The title song, a rough sequel to “My City Was Gone,” is an environmental anthem that doesn’t see conservation as passive, or even particularly nonviolent: Hynde’s idea of caring for the planet involves destroying what’s been built by industry, with impunity (“thwack it, crack it, lineback it / break up the concrete”), and chronicling the assault with a Bo Diddley beat.
