“I was completely in love with Marc Bolan, from John’s Children to Dandy In The Underworld and everything in between,” writes Banhart. “I remember the feeling of freedom I got from ‘Scenescof’ … ‘I don’t need anyone to dictate all my fun smile your smile and then run’…. That line gave me the courage to carve out a little bit of fantasy in my life back in my late teens.”
