  • T Rex

    Originally a folk-rock duo formed as Tyrannosaurus Rex in 1960s London, T. Rex went on to spearhead the glam rock movement of the ’70s. “T. Rexstacy” swept England as frontman Marc Bolan rose to the height of rock superstardom – high heels, top hats, feather boas, and all. The group, which shortened its name but expanded to a full band, enjoyed four number one singles in the U.K.: “Hot Love,” “Get It On” (retitled “Bang a Gong (Get It On)” in the U.S.), “Telegram Sam,” and “Metal Guru.” Though the band’s success began to decline in 1975, T. Rex maintained a devoted following until Bolan’s death in 1977. In addition to glam rock, T. Rex has proved influential to hard rock, punk, new wave, and alternative rock. Likewise, the band’s fat guitar riffs, primal grooves, pop aesthetic, and purposely trashy rock ‘n’ roll style has proved awesome on vinyl.
