    Not sure if that's the post that Bud is referring to but I reckon it's glammy, by dint of the vocals.

      ...Although Google tells me it's 1970.

      So, for the benefit of LLMOD1, what makes glam glam? For me double-time, glitterbeat, toms, handclaps and Bolan-esque vocals. But it's a pretty hard genre to define, musically, I reckon.

        All those things, I think, but it must also have a whiff of bubblegum and a touch of metal. I suppose you could say 'Desdemona' by John's Children was proto-glam, but then that might be cheating.

          Na-na-na-na-na vocals.
          Powerchords after a fashion.
          Idiot joy riffs.

          Boxers with glitter on their faces.
          Rugby boys toying with androgyny because they figured it might get them laid more.
          To infinity - and beyond!

                    Good question - particularly when I'm looking at obscure "junkshop glam" 45s I often wonder whether it can technically be "glam" until you've seen pictures of the artist. As, essentially, we're talking blues-rock type stuff, at one end, you've got the more straight-forward pop-rock side of things and at the other you've got stuff that comes from the progressive rock side of things or even "pub-rock".

                    So, musically, Wreckless Eric (see here) or Status Quo or James Hogg's wonderful 'Lovely Lady Rock' might be glam but, due to styling, neither are. I guess the answer would just be Bolanesque vocals but that would exclude lots of the stuff of Velvet Tinmine for example, not to mention a lot of Gary Glitter, The Sweet, Roxy Music, Slade and plenty of others who are often talked about in terms of glam.

                    Obviously, none of this bothers me in terms of whether I like it or not.

                        i don't think it's what you are searching for, but in a way bubblegum tracks lile "cara-linn" by the strangeloves or "quick joe small" share a lot of things with glam
                        (a "massive" beat, goofy but funny tracks, etc)

                          The Eggy and Ning were both Coventry bands....formed from the ashes of The Sorrows and 3AM (a cross between Cream and Jeff Beck Group apparently) respectively - SO THERE !

                            I've thought the same myself before. Try playing 'Quick Joey Small' back to back with 'Neurotic Reaction'...

                              surely there must be some Bonzo Dog Band stuff that fits in with the sound you're after.... try "you done my brain in" from their KEYNSHAM lp
