not glam...not punk...i guess its hard rock...one thing is for sure...its a great tune!
Fun! And who else can wear a t-shirt of themselves and get away with it?
Marc Bolin was a force unto himself, for the time
Always like Bolan. I found a video of him playing a festival once with John and Bowie backing him. Couldn't seem to dig it up. But these work
That is Ringo back there.
I always viewed it as glam. Amazing song. Love Bolan. Can’t believe 20th century boy was only a single, most people would’ve loved to kick off an LP with that good of a song.
Not only that, he's playing next to a cardboard cut-out of himself. It's too good to be true.
The 8:30 Wembley concert is a stormer, one of my favorite live performances ever. The boogie was in him, and it got to come out.
Its glam rock, simple as that. Bolan was one of the pioneers, 70s stuff was just so brilliant imo.
It never came any more glam. Glam was made just for Marc Bolan. Marc Bolan was made just for glam.
i was noticing that most people were dressed in street clothes...marc was wearing a gold shirt of some kind and a boa...other than that the glam wasnt very flashy in this video...he was labeled glam and in other videos he was dressed more like it...thats all i meant by not glam
I have a vague recollection of his TV show ( one series, 6 episodes - series two cancelled following his death). Weird mixture of outgoing glam and prog rock and incoming punk. I wonder what would have happened had he lived longer as his glam career would have nose dived.
When I was a student one of our housemates did a runner on the rent and we divided up the belongings she left behind. I got a copy of T Rex Greatest Hits and a sex toy. So, the sound of Marc Bolan evokes a slightly odd set of memories.
Than again, there is this lyrical masterpiece from Mr. Bolan...
i think marc was headed toward punk...as maybe not a player but in some way connected
Most, probably all, of the TV series is on YouTube. Im part way through watching this episode, slightly random stuff. Robin Askwith famous for the Confessions movies singing, bizarre.
