“Boots of Chinese Plastic” – The Pretenders


Yet again, I’m catching up on a great song long after its shelf date.  Hipsters may see this as sad.  I, on the other hand, am always ecstatic to find an awesome song, no matter the age. This time, it’s only 5 years years old … and it’s from an old favorite. I heard this amazing, lo-fi, rockin’ song from the Pretenders the other night on Sirius Underground Garage and it sounds tailor-made for that station. This is “Boots of Chinese Plastic,” released in 2008, from their album “Break Up the Concrete.” Chrissie Hynde was 57 when this came out. The lady can still kick ass!
