BEYOND THE RUST BELT:THE MARC BOLAN SHOW

Marc Bolan was the enigmatic and flamboyant leader of 70s glam rock powerhouse, T. Rex. He died in a tragic car accident while sitting in the passenger seat of a friend’s Mini 1275GT. The year was 1977; punk was just exploding. The same year as his death was a television program titled “Marc” which found Bolan hosting a variety of bands from Hawkwind to The Jam to obscure and forgettable British one hit wonders. He performed numbers with T. Rex and strtutted his stuff for the world to see. Unfortunately only six episodes aired due to his untimely death. This post is a celebration of Bolam’s life. The show is an awesome pop culture time capsule. We at the Hammer hope you are pleased with the footage.
