Miles, The History of Rock, 1983
ALTHOUGH THEY WERE one of the most influential bands of the early Seventies, the New York Dolls remain one of the least known. The took up the sleazier inclinations of the Velvet Underground and mixed them with trashy American pop music; in the age of glitter rock they were the glitterati, tottering about the stage on high heels, frequently dressed in drag and forever camping it up to the amusement and delight of their fans. After the Dolls came everything from the Rubes and Kiss in America to the Sex Pistols in London.
