Wam-bam... Thank You, Glam! This month we're celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Glam Rock's Year Zero: 1972 - a time when bands in enormous platform boots, silver spandex jump suits & glitter eye shadow stomped and clapped their way to the very top of the UK & US pop charts. The large majority of these era-defining songs were penned by UMPG's songwriting team of Nicky Chinn & Mike Chapman, the undisputed heavyweight champions of Glam. If you love brash, wildly theatrical sing-alongs loaded with pure adrenaline and tons of synch potential, you're in for a treat!
