John’s Children :: Desdemona

Mod out. Released in 1967 (and penned by Marc Bolan), this proto T. Rex nugget found itself banned by the BBC due to the lyric, "lift up your skirt and fly," How quaint! A high watermark of the short lived Leatherhead, England art/pop outfit, John's Children, "Desdemona's" eccentric charms continue to refrain. And though Bolan departed shortly thereafter, he would soon rework the group's "Mustang Ford" and "Hot Rod Mamma" for the nascent Tyrannosaurus Rex . . .
