AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Meet Hector Davis, a forty-year-old town planner who loves his wife and teenaged daughter. He enjoys listening to Kiss, Gary Glitter and T-Rex. He also occasionally likes to strip down for a ‘rub-and-tug’ at the local ‘massage’ parlour.

Life’s pretty cruisy for Hector.

Until one day, whilst enjoying one of his ‘massages’, the parlour is raided by police and Hector snatches up his clothing, fleeing naked to a nearby park. He shelters behind some shrubs, but is discovered and filmed on a mobile phone by two schoolgirls. To his astonishment, he is rescued by the very embodiment of one of his idols, Marc Bolan, the late singer with T-Rex.

As Hector’s marriage falls apart in the wake of the mobile phone footage, he is erroneously accused of taking a bribe and forced to stand aside from his job.

Hector has to deal with the emotional fall-out of these upheavals, being supported by a colourful cast including his oafish best mate, his sister who just wants to get married to her partner (another woman), his new friend Kat, a rambunctious Doberman, Seventies tribute artists, and his new landlord-cum-benefactor, the world’s most accurate Marc Bolan impersonator.

Silver Studs and Sabre Teeth is a compelling, rollicking, rollercoaster tale of one man’s journey from the ordinary to the extraordinary with much drama and mischief on the way.
