Review about Mott the Hoople songs
teenage rebels | Reviewer: Roderick
    ------ About the song Marionette performed by Mott the Hoople

every generation of teenagers has their share of angst and rebellion and an anthem to go with it
to those older and wiser it may sound like a melodramatic parody

the ending was realistic. anger and trouble should be avoided
if you want to be safe and warm then you have to conform!

had a smoke and dreamt up the name when I was forming the band "Thunderbuckram "in 68, it was a hallucinatory image of a "King Kong style gorilla that spoke to me . dont mess with that stuff anymore ,we cut an LP on the Transatlantic label under producer Gus Dudgeon who produced Elton John, Gus actually offered me the songwriting contract that went to Elton
