T. Rex Dandy In The Underworld on Limited Edition 180g Import LP
One of the most popular British bands of their time, T. Rex spearheaded the glam-rock movement, a genre owing everything to its quintessential superstar, Marc Bolan. Driven by simple grooves, effortless hooks, trippy vocals, and fat guitars, their music was infused both with hippie spirituality and raw sexuality.
Demon Records is thrilled to announce the monumental reissue series of the T.Rex catalog - from 1972's The Slider through to 1977 swan song Dandy & The Underworld - on heavyweight 180-g vinyl. The reissue series also includes the records Tanx, Zinc Alloy, Futuristic Dragon and Bolan's Zip Gun, all lovingly restored to the original sleeve replications (di-cut & gatefold sleeves included where required) and cut from the latest digital remasters.
Energized by the punk rock sound then sweeping London, Bolan put together a new-look T. Rex for what would be his final release, 1977's Dandy In The Underworld. Featuring a gutsier, R&B based sound, though with Bolan's trademark lyricism still much in evidence, as well as the infectious revivalism of his 1976 hit, "I Love To Boogie," Dandy returned Bolan and Co. to the limelight. This re-emergence was cruelly curtailed when pop's most distinctive, and in so many ways influential superstar of the '70s was killed in a car crash in Barnes, London, on September 16, 1977.
