Glam rock is a style of rock music that developed in the United Kingdom in the early 1970s performed by musicians who wore outrageous costumes, makeup, and hairstyles, particularly platform shoes and glitter. Glam artists drew on diverse sources across music and throwaway pop culture, ranging from bubblegum pop and 1950s rock and roll to cabaret, science fiction, and complex art rock
Before rising to become glam rock’s first true star, Marc Bolan had spent a fair amount of time penning trippy folk songs about unicorns and wizards. That all changed with Electric Warrior. He plugged in, cranked up the volume, and turned in an explosive reinvention of an album that replaced those earlier, mystical folk tunes with meaty power chords, sexual energy and songs about cars. Shortening the name from Tyrannosaurus Rex to T. Rex, Bolan’s band was reborn and rocked hard enough to shatter his jeepster’s windows.
