Album Review

In 1997, the 20th anniversary of Marc Bolan's death, former bandmate Mickey Finn put together a loose aggregation of fellow ex-T. Rex-ers to play at one of the tribute concerts that were held that sad season. Fair enough. But it was difficult to shake the cynicism from your hair when a fresh version of that band then went out to greet the greatest-hits circuit with only two actual T. Rex veterans (Finn and latter-day sideman Paul Fenton) on board, and even harder to comprehend the group's continued existence once Finn, too, had passed away. Yet here they are, still going strong, a T. Rex tribute band in everything but name. Fifteen slabs of primal Bolan boogie roll across the disc, and maybe if you're really not paying attention, vocalist Rob Benson does pull off a passable impression of the late master.

Should be illegal calling a tribute T-Rex

Rubbish, I'm sure the tribute band are very good but they are not T Rex and should use a different name, at least I tunes should be listing them as a tribute.

t rex my a**e!

great tune desecrated - what a rip off!

This is not Marc Bolan's T.REX - this is a tribute act masquerading as the great T.REX - lacks the soul of the original and why buy imitation when you can download the real thing

I have no problem with tribute bands recording and releasing great material either in tribute to the original artist or indeed their own version/ take on it - what I detest is the use of the name T-REX which has been done deliberately to confuse less well informed listners or people new to the music. As to the group playing with Marc and Mickey - Marc Bolan died in 1977 and there may be a session musician hitting a few drums? and Mickey died in 2002 although he did form his own tribute band T-Rex a celebration of Marc and Mickey which perhaps this is the remenants of? All the same release the music - just don't deliberately confuse people by pretending to be something you are not!

Biography

Formed: 1967

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s

Initially a British folk-rock combo called Tyrannosaurus Rex, T. Rex was the primary force in glam rock, thanks to the creative direction of guitarist/vocalist Marc Bolan (born Marc Feld). Bolan created a deliberately trashy form of rock & roll that was proud of its own disposability. T. Rex's music borrowed the underlying sexuality of early rock & roll, adding dirty, simple grooves and fat distorted guitars, as well as an overarching folky/hippie spirituality that always came through the...
