AngelHeaded Hipster + Recorded Q&A


AngelHeaded Hipster + Recorded Q&A

Friday 06 October 2023


AngelHeaded Hipster tells the story of Marc Bolan’s rise to fame as the lead singer of the legendary T-Rex.

In 2022 a group of artists and musicians came together to re-record a collection of Bolan’s classic tracks – including well-known classics like Get It On, 20th Century Boy and Cosmic Dancer.

The film features contributions from Nick Cave, David Bowie, U2, Elton John, Ringo Starr, Joan Jett, Father John Misty, Beth Orton, Billy Idol and many more, all on hand to celebrate Bolan’s work in interviews and/or performances.

These combine with archival footage to trace his life story from his teenage years digging through Carnaby Street dustbins with Bowie to his tragic death at the age of 29.

This documentary creates an exuberant and thoughtful examination of a true original: a glam rock pioneer, gender-bending free spirit and explorer of punk and soul music.

We celebrate Bolan’s life from his teenage years digging through Carnaby Street dustbins with David Bowie, to his stellar music career and last relationship with Gloria Jones, all through a new, unique creative lens.

An exclusive recorded Q&A with the director Ethan Silverman, Producer Bill Curbishley and special guest Rolan Bolan will be screened at the end of documentary.
