Watch T. Rex perform ‘London Boys’

  • ‘London Boys’ - T. Rex (1976)

    Some things, and people, never change

    Marc Bolan’s mod-informed stomper touches on urban life, but is really just a pretty frame for its oft-repeated central refrain of ‘We are the London boys’. A glam terrace anthem if ever there was one, and a clue as to how burly hooligans could reconcile listening to music made by fey wisps in glittery make-up and stack heels.
