Blondie‘s unheard song “I Love You Honey, Give Me a Beer,” was eventually turned into “Go Through It,” which is included on the band’s 1980 album Autoamerican.
According to a press release, Alan Rudolph’s musical comedy Roadie, which starred Meat Loaf and Alice Cooper, may have inspired the 1980 recording of “I Love You Honey, Give Me a Beer.”
The demo will be featured in the upcoming Blondie: Against the Odds 1974-1982 official box set. The band’s first six albums in remastered form are included in the compilation to be released on August 26. A cover of the Doors’ “Moonlight Drive” that had never been heard before was made available by the group last month.
One of the numerous demos taken from Autoamerican’s recording sessions, originally known as Coca-Cola due to its themes of American pop culture and invention, is “I Love You Honey, Give Me a Beer.” Blondie had intended to release the album under this name with just the Coca-Cola logo on the front cover, but difficulties with the company’s licensing prompted the band to give up on the idea.
Meanwhile, Blondie are currently joined by the Damned on the road for their North America summer tour. Guitarist Chris Stein, recently disclosed that he will not be participating in the trek because of a heart condition. While, Glen Matlock, the original Sex Pistols bassist, will be performing with the band during their upcoming series of shows.
