    listen to the song -- - sounds pretty glammy to me. stomping drums etc...

    He moved to Herne Bay.
    He tried to start a low-key life by frequenting his local tavern.
    They made it clear he was an undesirable.

    The local rag launched a campaign to have sent back to where paedos like him belong.

    (a "massive" beat, goofy but funny tracks, etc)
    I've thought the same myself before. Try playing 'Quick Joey Small' back to back with 'Neurotic Reaction'...

    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 !

    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.
