SUNDAY 12 AUGUST
Hot off the back a stonking performance at this June’s prestigious IW Festival and bringing some upbeat “Glitter Rock” to the JUT80s line up, we’re pleased to announce that the fabulous T.Rextasy will be joining us on the Sunday afternoon of this year’s big Summer throwback party.
An iconic glam rock star from the 70s, Marc Bolan’s hits including I Love To Boogie, 20th Century Boy, Ride A White Swan, Metal Guru, Jeepster, Get It On, Hot Love, and Children of the Revolution were sampled on countless TV commercials and covered by so many artists in the 1980s. In the 90s Marc’s music was used as the soundtrack to the Billy Elliot movie and other Hollywood blockbusters.
If their stardom didn’t last their influence did, and T. Rex’s dirty but playful attitude and Bolan’s sense of style and rock star moves subsequently showed their influence in metal, punk, new wave, and alternative rock; in fact it’s all but impossible to imagine the ’80s new romantic scene existing without Bolan’s influence.
T.Rextasy always put on a fantastic show and are the closest you’ll ever get to Marc Bolan and T. Rex.
They are now accepted as the world’s only official live tribute band dedicated to Marc Bolan and T. Rex, and the only band endorsed and approved by Marc Bolan’s family, estate, original ex-members of T. Rex, and Bolan’s catalogue management. The band is consistently described by many as ‘legendary’ and ‘beyond the boundaries of tribute’.
