Glam rock (also known as glitter rock), is a style of rock and roll music, which initially surfaced in the post-Hippie early 1970s.
In America, glam rock was most prominently represented by the proto-punk New York Dolls, whose Rolling Stones-influenced rock and roll was matched by their frilly yet macho 'dandified street gang' look.
In the late 1970s, glam rock was a major influence upon the punk rock movement in the United Kingdom; bands such as the Sex Pistols, The Damned (with whom Marc Bolan toured during 1977) and Siouxsie And The Banshees conspicuously referenced glam in both image and sound.

 CD Baby: ABBY TRAVIS: GlitterMouth - from rockandrollmark
Abby Travis' new album Glitter Mouth is a beautiful and intriguing collection of mostly original songs by an artist who effortlessly combines new wave rock with the classic sensibilities of a Classical Hollywood chanteuse.
While I admittedly prefer Abby's So Far Away as it appeared on her previous album, the new version is quite compelling too, even with the uptempo sound and sound effects that might not give the newer version an instantly emotional appeal as the earlier version, but it's still pleasing.
For anyone who loves beautiful music with an edge, Abby Travis' Glitter Mouth will leave you with a desire for more, and a spirit lifted into the realms of the ethereal.
