No Pretensions

Skin basher Martin Chambers, the late James Honeyman-Scott and Pete Farndon, together with exiled Ohio gal Chrissie Hynde burst onto the late 70's rock scene with equal amounts of Pop propulsion, with hits like "Brass In Pocket," "Stop Your Sobbing" and "Kid", and ballsy fuzzed-out chutzpah ("Precious," "The Wait," and "Mystery Achievement") that punctured Disco's seemingly indefatigable bubble. Half of the original lineup may have fallen by the wayside, but Hynde's will proved too strong to be held down, and rightfully so. Long live the Class Of '79!
