‘These Boots are Made for Walking’ by Nancy Sintatra is definitely one of those songs that has truly stood the test of time. A feminist anthem that many have covered before. Now London based Healthy Junkies have released their own version as their latest single. They initally played this cover version back in 2018 at a LA gig. Back then, Vicky Hamilton former manager of Guns and Roses expressed interest in releasing the song, but it’s only now they have decided to release it.
This version is filled with punk attitude and grit. I feel like this is the modern update of this classic song that we needed. The video has been filmed in LA and simply oozes rock n roll.
Healthy Junkies are working on their sixth album, which is set for release late in 2023.
Healthy Junkies have gigs coming up on these dates:
3rd August- Rebellion festival in Blackpool
12th August- The Black Heart, Camden
1st September- their own curated festival- Punk and Roll Rendezvous Festival, London
5th Oct- with The Ramonas, Birmingham
‘These Boots are Made for Walking’ is out now and available via their Bandcamp
