  1. Hammered Satin, The Flytraps, Mute SwansRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 1, 2016 | LA Weekly

    L.A.'s Hammered Satin are a band from an alternate universe where John Lydon never moved past selling acid at Hawkwind shows, and where punk and post-punk didn't happen 'til T. Rex was damn good and ready to leave the spotlight. That means a universe full of fabulous outfits, of course, but that also means Heavy Metal Kids, The Jook and Milk 'N' Cookies would've been all over the charts - which would've made Hammered Satin a lot easier to explain to a 2016 L.A. that might look at these guys and think, "Are we doing hair metal again?" No, man - we're doing hard-edged, '70s-style, teenage discotheque crunchers, crushers and stompers, just like Marc Bolan would've wanted.

With Bolan's special ingredient of Rock-a-Boogie songs throughout the 1970s including 'Telegram Sam' and 'Jeepster' he was able to obtain what would be yet another Top 20 record later in 1976 that has since become one of the most memorable and everlasting signature tunes, 'I Love to Boogie'.
