Los Angeles indie imprint Conspiracy Music announced last week that they’ll be releasing a ’70s glam rock tribute LP on 30 January 2001 titled Rodney Bingenheimer Presents Blockbuster—A 70s Glitter Glam Rock Experience. The collection features new recordings by more than a dozen bands (including some can’t miss collaborations) playing hits and hidden treasures of the era including Gary Glitter’s Rock And Roll (Part 2), Suzi Quatro’s Can The Can, and T-Rex’s Raw Ramp.

Other high points are The Donnas playing The Sweet’s Wig-Wam Bam, OtherStarPeople (featuring Jennifer Finch, ex L7) playing Bowie’s Suffragette City, and Nick Heyward (ex Haircut 100) playing T-Rex’s Hot Love.
