An introduction to marcbolanmusic

 

MARC BOLAN ~ Poet, songwriter, musician, performer ~ a beautiful creature. We are all affected by different aspects of an artists work - there is more than just words and music. So what it is about Bolan that makes him so important to me and to so many people would only be a personal view

That Bolan was a writer of hit singles is a fact. That they, and the rest of his musical output are classic pieces (well almost all), is a personal belief that I share with many thousands of others

Two decades ago Marc Bolan was probably better known for being a Star - a poster on the wall, than as the serious and respected writer and musician that he is now. As with many such artists, the majority of his catalogue had been sadly overlooked, often overshadowed by fan organisations, record companies and the media's interest in image and those hit singles

Certainly Marc knew about image; he is known as the Boppin' Elf from hippy times, the King of Glam Rock in the times of lurex and glitter and as the self-professed Godfather of Punk when the establishment were still unsure of the importance of the movement. Through all these times he created unique and exhilarating music

Name: Marc Bolan / Alias: Carm Deleff / Occupation: Interior Mental Decorator / Hobby: Snurding / Favourite Disease: The Crawling Snorts / Major Vice: Snorting Quail Eggs / Ambition: To make the transition / Worst Fear: To lose the key to the dark / What will you do it we let you go home?: Come back.

I think Marc Bolan is great. His music is as invigorating and inspirational to me now as it was when I came across Electric Warrior and (hey, this is serious), had my life changed. His writing and poetry enthral and fascinate me still, his skill as an interviewee has, in my opinion, yet to be matched - such humour, eloquence and imagination; his stage performances were energetic, sensual, rock'n'raunch experiences and, on top of all that, he was a groovy looking guy



 

This site is home to all my Bolanic interests - the three record labels I have been involved with, Archive Jive which was the first to release early Bolan material, Barracuda Blue, the first to release interpretations of Bolan songs and Thunderwing Productions Limited, which released material from later in the Bolan catalogue. I have worked on and produced my own fanzines and have republished many of the articles and interviews from them here. Marc Bolan's story is a wonderous thing and as marcbolanmusic.com grows, so the story will be told and illustrated, in pictures, film and music

Music is my passion. Bolan's the Main Man but there's thousands of other Artists and bands that I love - having worked for almost 20 years in Collectors Record shops and Record Fairs and worked with so many musicians, I have had access to most genres of music and had the opportunity to learn about and discuss music with many knowledgeable people. Other Artists and bands will feature on this site because Marc was influenced by and influenced many musicians... before I took my first steps into a record shop, Marc, through his interviews, had led me to explore many soul, blues and rock'n'roll Artists and, of course, Bob Dylan
