mott the hoople

back in 1973-74, dave relethford, ronnie rowe, peter mengler, john wilmshurst and i usedta play air gtr to this song, in spite of the fact that a couple of us could actually play by that time. duh. seeing these guys live convinced me that big rawk shows are bullshit and what's really essential is seeing the musos sweat and feeling the speakers/skins moving yr clothes around. luther james grosvenor aka ariel bender blows a coupla outrageous clams here.

2 things strike me:

1. The absurdity of the overbearing, yet totally invisible, piano player.

2. I gotta get me some thigh-high white leather platform boots.

also also: never heard the expression "blows a coupla outrageous clams" before. The Outrageous Clams sounds like a punk band.
