Marc Bolan on Metal Guru: “”Is a festival of life song. I relate ‘Metal Guru’ to all Gods around. I believe in a God, but I have no religion. With ‘Metal Guru’, it’s like someone special, it must be a Godhead. I thought how God would be, he’d be all alone without a telephone. I don’t answer the phone any more. I have codes where people ring me at certain times.” Metal Guru was the inspiration for a musical homage in The Smiths’ Panic.

A Collection of Great Dance Songs

This anthology includes Money released in 1973 and a tape loop of jingling cash register sounds and coins. “Money interested me enormously,” Roger Waters remarked on the twentieth anniversary of Dark Side. “I remember thinking, ‘Well, this is it and I have to decide whether I’m really a socialist or not.’ I’m still keen on a general welfare society, but I became a capitalist. You have to accept it. I remember coveting a Bentley like crazy. The only way to get something like that was through rock or the football pools. I very much wanted all that material stuff.”
