Video Clip of The Week: BØRNS,”Electric Love”



Greetings Glam Rockers! Let us imagine for a few minutes that is it still the early to mid-Seventies, and that the radio airwaves are alive with the sounds of new songs by Queen, ELP and the original band called Alice Cooper. Those were the days. If you remember that time as well as I do, you will agree that there is so much to love about this week’s video clip, “Electric Love” by the new American act, BØRNS, including an androgynous male vocalist, go-go girls in glow-in-the-dark, fringed outfits, flashing neon, psychedelic mandalas and a stone groove that just will not stop kicking ass.  Is it possible that BØRNS (AKA Garrett Borns) is the reincarnation of the late Marc Bolan? Yes, yes it is. Watch for the 2-Minute mark, when BØRNS actually transforms into the cover of the T Rex‘s Electric Warrior. I shit you not.

If you dig MGMT and Tame Impala this song will ring your bell a few times. Thanks in abundance to Geoffrey for turning me on to this artist and the accompanying resplendent video. Rock is Dead, They Say. Long Live Rock! Enjoy!

T Rex “Get It On” Goes to #1!

On This Date, July 25th in 1971: T. Rex reached the #1 position on the UK singles charts with the song “Get It On” (from the album Electric Warrior, which is awesome). The group’s second #1 single spent four weeks at the top. “Get It On” is better known by the title “Bang a Gong” here in the US, because we are such fucking prudes when it comes to sex. Jeez.
