Question: Do we really need another Blondie?
Answer: Did we really need the first?
Better Question: Isn't Blondie really just the obvious comparison, and by mentioning them aren't you taking the easy way out?
Answer: Yes, but if I stretched for a "Hives meet Ace of Base in a New York garage" analogy, it'd still amount to the same thing. If it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck, why call it a cross between a swan and a pigeon?
