1967 – Marc Bolan placed an ad in Melody Maker in 1967, looking for some bandmates. It read, “Freaky lead guitarist, bass guitarist and drummer wanted for Marc Bolan’s new group. Also any other astral flyers like with cars, amplification and that which never grows in window boxes.” OK. Steve Took and Ben Cartland answered and joined the band. They would release their first album a year later. It’s full title was, My People Were Fair and Had Sky in Their Hair But Now They’re Content to Wear Stars On Their Brows.
