ALDERMASTON FREE PEACE FESTIVAL
SHOTS FROM THE HIP
Charles Shaar Murray
'It's really strange,' he said. 'Little girls come up to me and touch me and squeal and run away. The other day at the Aldermaston gig, all these little girls started screaming "Marc Bolan, Marc Bolan" at me, so I screamed back "Steve Took, Steve Took" till they went away.'
He has one or two memories of his one American tour with Tyrannosaurus Rex. 'We were staying at the Chelsea in New York and Marc didn't like it. He kept running his finger under shelves and going "Oh! Grubby!" and so we had to move to this big fuckin' hotel where they kept staring at us all the time. So I said to June, Marc's wife, that I didn't want to be a part of no fuckin' freak show. She said "I like to be surrounded by nice things."' Took puts a world of scorn into the word ''nice'.
