Letter from Britain: Life's a Gas, I Hope It's Gonna Last — Notes On T. Rex

Simon Frith, Creem, July 1972

ZONK. THIS column is going to be about how things look in and from England. More to the point it's going to be about how things look to me, because although life is pretty shitty, what with Ireland and no jobs and the endless hum of B-52s, I feel fine. In fact I'm having more fun than at any time since Creedence's Green River album.
