Teenage Rebel of the Week.
We've all been there.
I saw the band, a few weeks after they released this single. Weird and wonderful, they were.
I named one of my guitars this..because it was made in Virginia and it's (not) plain.
Love Roxy when Eno was around....and "Love is the Drug"
makes me grin watching Ferry.... ...
and hearing Eno's little piece.... they carved an interesting niche for themselves RM....
What a wonderful breath of fresh air they were, in a period that was otherwise pretty dismal.
I think by 1981 "the market" had caught up with them. I thought Avalon was such a great album - it never ever occurred to me it would be the last.
They were awesome.
Robert Fripp has a version of 21st century Schitzoid man sung by Brian Ferry , he said it would never be released but was one of his prized posessions , I would die to hear it , i really love Eno's and Manzanara's solo work and all of Avalon , Jealous Guy cover , sirens, etc , such a cool european sound, Ferry is truely original amongst vocalist
Thanks for posting
I absolutely love their first three albums.
They say that music often evokes memories of times you had when you first heard it. Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music is another vivid case of music that transports my mind to another time long ago...
I just never got into them. I kept reading so much about them in Rolling Stone in the 70's and went and bought an album and just hated it. Never played it again. Just not for me.
Thanks for starting this thread. We played lots of Roxy in the '70's. I always appreciated how pliable this music was to play. Very musical, very tolerant of interpretation. Great dance music.
