AngelHeaded Hipster

Nick Cave, Joan Jett, Kesha, Father John Misty and U2 are just some of the artists who have contributed to a new album celebrating the music of Marc Bolan and T.Rex which was initiated by Hal Willner before his untimely death earlier this month.

AngelHeaded Hipster was conceived by Willner after he, ‘became immersed in this artist by listening to everything, talking to Bolan experts and fans, researching his reviews and interviews’.

“And I found that Bolan was hardly ever talked about as a ‘composer’,” Willner had said. “It was all about what a great rocker he was, how innovative he was, how David Bowie took his essence and Bolan was in his shadow.”

“But I put him in the same pantheon as other composers that I’ve explored before. So, the concept for the album became to show Bolan as a composer with our typical cast of artists from different worlds that one rarely sees in the same place.”
