Glam rock royalty comes in many forms, and this next entry into our EXHUMED spotlight series focuses on one Trevor White, a UK phenomenon of sorts who spent quite a few years emblazoned in several of the finest glam rock bands, and a true lightning rod of power pop royalty.
Just because you create one of the best, most important works of art in your field, doesn't mean the mass idiocy She Still Loves Me (Acoustic) - SOJA* - Strength To Survive popular culture will be savvy enough to notice.
An obvious theory as to it's lack of chart success would be jealousy from Bowie, Bolan and Gary Glitter, but even the B-side, the tumultuous "Movin' in the Right Direction" gets down just as Trevor White - Crazy Kidsknocking down the "single-sided glam single" theory in one shot.
Two luscious lightning bolts of tough glam crunch on one 7" platter, what more can you really ask for? Thankfully our friends at Just Add Water Records have resuscitated this single and remastered it even louder and cleaner, making this an essential grab for anyone in the know.
So now it's 40 years later and it's still "Crazy Kids" rings loud and true, a powerful blast of glam rock crunch, seeping with hooks and fleshy melody that you just can't wash off, a near perfect piece of rock'n roll blastitude ready to bring any party on earth to it's knees within seconds. Victim of Time.
