Album Review

In 2000, writer Nina Antonia penned a fine "official biography" about Johnny Thunders, In Cold Blood. And as a bonus, a ten-track CD came along with the book, and included mainly alternate mixes of favorites that listeners all know and love from the L.A.M.F. album, as well as a few live tracks and an interview from the early '80s. If you already own the L.A.M.F. album, there's not a very big difference in the versions here — as evident on "Pirate Love," "One Track Mind," and "Born to Lose." Live takes of the heroin anthem "Chinese Rocks" and a cover of "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone" are also featured, while the six-and-half-minute interview portion doesn't offer any great insight (Thunders appears standoffish and keeps a pretty tight lip throughout), and was included in video form on the 2001 DVD Dead or Alive. In the context that In Cold Blood is a CD included with the purchase of the book, it's a nice little freebie. But on its own, most Thunders devotees will be long familiar with this material.
