Rex continued to record up until the sudden death of frontman Marc Bolan in 1977. Even though they regrettably influenced a lot of cheesy hair metal bands, the ballsy yet flamboyant glam rock of T. Rex has been cited as an influence by everyone from Paul Weller, Kate Bush and the Pixies to My Chemical Romance, Ty Segall and Sunflower Bean. The legacy of T. Rex has long been cemented, whether it be their seductive, theatrical classic-rock sound or Bolan’s gender-bending fashion that fused hippie and glam with his long curls, glittered cheeks, feather boas and zany, brightly colored clothing. This entire non-album track is great, but those first 15 seconds or so are just glorious and slightly sinister-Visconti’s cinematic strings and Bolan’s fiery Yeah. The song also contains one of Bolan’s funniest lyrics, also about his spooky love of automobiles ( I drive a Rolls-Royce, ’Cause it’s good for my voice ).
