Marc Bolan And T-Rex - Dandy In The Underworld (LP, Album, RE, Gat). The opening and title song Dandy in the Underworld was a dramatic interpretation of how Bolan viewed his own fall from grace full of regret for wasted youth and cocaine nights. In reality this was the year Marc returned from the dead with a new credibility and a new lease of life. Slimmer healthier and meaner sounding.
Marc Bolan welcomed the advent of punk rock with the biggest smile he'd worn in years. The hippest young gunslingers could go on all night about the influence of the Velvet Underground, the Stooges, and the Ramones, but Bolan knew - and subsequent developments proved - that every single one of them had been nurtured in his arms, growing up with the ineffable stream of brilliant singles he slammed out between 1970-1972, and rehearsing their own. stardom to the soundtrack he supplied. Dandy in the Underworld, released early in 1977, confirmed Bolan's punkoid preeminence. Still retaining its predecessors' demented soul revue edge (most successfully via the yearning "Soul of My Suit") but packed solid with powerful pop (the previous summer's hit "I Love to Boogie" included), Bolan's personal predictions for the punk scene literally exploded out of the grooves.

The Bolan/ . ex story is well known, despite their limited stateside success. From '70 to '73, . ex singles and albums dominated the British charts. extasy (as it was dubbed) was considered the biggest thing to come along since Beatlemania. Even Ringo Starr fell for the hype, and filmed the band in concert at the height of fan hysteria (see the "Born To Boogie" DVD). I miss Marc Bolan, but I'm thrilled he went out on a high note with such a great album. Rock music doesn't get more fun than "Dandy In The Underworld". 24 people found this helpful.
