By Fans Demand – FERAL FIVE Get It On!

29 January 2022

London’s electronic duo FERAL FIVE pay
homage to the late great glam rock icon
MARC BOLAN and T.REX with their new
cover of the classic GET IT ON.

FF: “Featuring both Ferals on vocals, this stomping version saw a fans-only sneak
peek to celebrate finishing their album. They soon had requests for a full release,
which the band dutifully obliged. Talk about ‘Bang A Gong’, this track has dirty synths,
floating fuzz guitar, heavy bass and beats (including cymbals and gongs of course).
Crank up the generator and set your speakers to overload, this song is more than
electric, it’s a mesmeric fully Feralised electronic smash!

The duo’s version is a repetitive banging gong going on and on.
Glam and glitter electro for the dancefloor lit by a rotating, shiny
disco ball.

Let’s dance, take a chance, understand me
You’re dirty, sweet and you’re my girl…

T.REX – Glam Rock Stomper ‘GET IT ON’ Came Out 50 Years Ago Today

Top singles from the past…

2 July 2021

This day 50 years ago, on 2 July 1971 the late great Marc Bolan‘s
glam rock band T. REX released GET IT ON, one of their 24 Karat
knockout hits.

Bolan revealed later that he took the main riff from Chuck Berry‘s hit
Little Queenie. In the US the track was renamed ‘Bang a Gong (Get It On)
to avoid confusion with a song of the same name by a combo called Chase.

Let’s groove it on…
