St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Missouri, March 1, 1883  

A new word has been coined. It is d-u-d-e or d-o-o-d. The spelling does not seem to be distinctly settled yet, but custom will soon regulate it.

A dude cannot be old; he must be young, and to be properly termed a dude he should be one of a certain class who affect the Metropolitan theaters. The dude is from 19 to 28 years of age, wears trousers of extreme tightness, is hollow-chester, effeminate in his ways, apes the English and distinguishes himself among his fellowmen as a lover of actresses.

They are offensive, because they blow cigarette smoke in the ladies’ faces and monopolize the bar between the acts.

Lyrics :

Attend the tale of Maxwell Roth,
He sought the footlights like a moth,
His sense of timing never off until,
He opted to collaborate,
With a hooded reprobate,
The Blighter and Assassin made a deadly double bill.

Jokes, Jokes, Jokes,
Make ‘em laugh until they choke,
Fairly slay them in the aisles,
Maidens fair and Princes charming.
Thrills, Thrills, Thrills,
Dashing feet and bloody spills,
And I guarantee you’ll never see the ending coming.

The curtain rose the scene was set,
They danced a murderous duet,
And much deserving blood was let up to,
The scene wherein they disagreed
on who should live and who should bleed,
And Maxwell Roth he then received,
A very bad review!

Jokes, Jokes, Jokes,
And there’s daggers and there’s cloaks,
But behind the scenes the leading players differ on the plot.
Laugh, Laugh, Laugh,
At the dandy’s new red scarf,
Now eight shows a week to Beelzebub is his eternal lot.

Jokes, jokes, jokes,
Make 'em laugh until they choke,
Fairly slay them in the aisles,
Maidens fair and Princes charming.
Thrills, Thrills, Thrills,
Dashing feet and bloody spills,
And I guarantee you’ll never see the ending coming!

Forty years ago this night, March 10, 1977, T. Rex played Newcastle City Hall supported by The Damned. A fan smuggled in a small portable cassette recorder and taped the concert. He was only six rows from the front of the stage and the band was quite loud. So this recording may not be of the highest sound quality but there is no denying the energy of Marc Bolan and T. Rex on what was to be their last tour of the UK. Fans all said Marc put on a great show, looked really happy and it came across in his joyous performance. He played new songs from the Dandy In The Underworld album as well as the old classics, opening with Debora and later, a punked up version of Jeepster which set the place on fire! Of course, none could know at the time this would be the final concert performance of Marc Bolan and T. Rex before his untimely death.
