T. Rex - "Electric Warrior" (1971)



Marc Bolan's fever infused swagger on stage as leader of T. Rex helped bring to bear the glittery glam side of fellow Brit rockers David Bowie and Mick Jagger. Rock & Roll was already sexually charged, but Bolan's amped up style and flirtatious voice reshaped the rock archetype in a way that was heard decades later in the music of Prince and Beck. The crunchy guitar licks and lip curling grooves forged a sound that rippled well past their time, seeding the last decades raw rock resurgence in bands like The White Stripes, The Strokes, and The Vines. Be sure to grab the mirror ball and feather boas for this slinky dance bash. -- Chris Baginski
