Quite why it is that the U.K. label best known for bringing Belle and Sebastian to the world named themselves after an upfront, glam rock smash number-one single -- the type of thing seemingly antithetical to the world of indie whimsy -- is a mystery for the gods to figure out. In the meantime, there's the song itself, another smash T. Rex hit, but ironically one that Marc Bolan never approved of for single release and whose appearance caused him to split from his then label to set up a wholly new one under his control. Whatever the reason for his disapproval, it couldn't have been because of quality -- if not quite the totally undeniable "Bang a Gong (Get It On)" in terms of instant classic status, "Jeepster" still kicks with a perfect bite. Recorded and performed in the rough, Sun Studios-inspired rockabilly fashion Bolan loved but with Tony Visconti's production adding the right clarity and punch throughout, "Jeepster" is as pure T. Rex as it gets, from the sex and sass to the descending chords in the chorus, strings along for the ride. Mickey Finn's percussion, emerging just enough from its usual not-really-there status, adds to the chugging feeling the Steve Currie/Bill Legend rhythm section effectively creates, while Bolan pulls out every car/girl comparison in the book and gets away with it. Not to mention the perfectly sensuous and snarling vampiric kiss-off at the end, "And I'm gonna suck ya!"
