Not a lot to say about this one, it’s quite self explanatory.
Flares, long hair, massive quantities of illicit substances and many, many guitars, leavened with as much self-indulgence as required.
Without even initially realising it, some of my favourite ever songs fit neatly into this genre, by artists such as Bowie, the Stones, Lou, Iggy and the Stooges, the Who, Alice Cooper and Heart, to name a few off the top of my head.
To start off, here’s a shout out to the Hollyweirdo otherwise known as the Amber one, she of the mighty recent defamation imbroglio. Iggy and the Stooges said it best, back in 1973 from their epic LP “Raw Power”.
Bizarrely, the opening track “Search and destroy” another stone cold rock classic, popped up in 1996 as the soundtrack to the official Nike ad for the Atlanta Olympics. If I can find the video it will be posted in the comments.
The second intro song is this absolute banger, courtesy of that legendary student of the history of American Socialism, Alice Cooper (see Wayne’s World for the reference).
Enjoy Cats, break out those Gibbos and Strats!
