When I was younger, although for some, not quite young enough, me and my friends would play the Groupie/Roadie Game (While sitting in a coffee shop people watching, you would put forward your theory on the clientele and which bands they would groupie/roadie for). One such time, while at university, me and a friend spied our Professor and his wife and decided they could have been both groupie and roadie for Mott the Hoople.
I do like the post-Dudes Mott, they were one of the few shining lights in glam-rock. But, I also like the metal wanabees of the early albums. Although it does have a harder sound than the Post-Dudes period, all the elements are still there, melodic rock, slower piano passages accompanied by Hunter, but what is also there is Mick Ralphs giving it, what for.
Best track name; The Wheel of the Quivering Meat Conception, followed closely by, Death May Be Your Santa Claus
