To counter this, he drew from the shock rock style of Iggy Pop ; as Took explained to the NME in "I took my shirt off in the Sunset Strip where we were playing and whipped myself till everybody shut up. With a belt, y'know, a bit of blood and the whole of Los Angeles shuts up. Bolan replaced Took with Mickey Finn , and after one further album renamed the duo T.
Rex , later expanding to a full band again. After being sacked by Bolan, Took formed a prototype version of the Pink Fairies with Twink and Mick Farren , recently ousted from his own band, the Deviants. This band was named in honour of a drinking club of the same name the three had formed earlier that year, along with other leading lights of the underground scene.
Together with Twink's girlfriend Silva Darling, they performed what Farren would later describe as "less of a gig than a protracted harangue" at the University of Manchester in October , which rapidly dissolved into chaos.
Took appeared prominently on Farren's first solo album Mona — The Carnivorous Circus recorded December , released Twink and the other ex-Deviants then formed a new band called the Pink Fairies mark 2 , without Took or Farren.
A month later, Farren dropped out, leaving Took in the role of bandleader for the first time in his career. They recorded three tracks, "Peppermint Flickstick", "Boo! Took and Wallis continued with drummer Dave Bidwell, rehearsing with various bass players and eventually forming an acoustic trio of Took on vocals and guitar, Wallis on acoustic bass and Bidwell on tambourine.
This line-up recorded a set of at least four home demos, "Amanda", "Strange Sister", "Still Yawning Stillborn" and "Beautiful Deceiver", at Wallis's father's home studio in South London , which in the s would be paired with the earlier electric studio session for limited edition vinyl release and later a CD album release in Wallis would later take over the leadership of the Pink Fairies for their Kings of Oblivion LP, substantially transforming the sound and style of the band.
He and Took would work together again at various intervals in , —76 and With Wallis and Bidwell otherwise committed to UFO and Savoy Brown respectively, the acoustic Shagrat was effectively reduced down to just Took himself performing solo on an acoustic guitar, usually sitting on a stool interspersing his songs with jokes and other onstage monologues. In this format, Took made some headway as a live performer. He also performed at various benefit events, including the "Nasty Balls" benefits for the Nasty Tales magazine  whose editors, including Farren, were on trial for obscenity as well as the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament festival at Aldermaston ,   Steve's account of which was reprinted by Charles Shaar Murray in his book Shots From The Hip.
