Thanks for posting, Robertron, although perhaps the writer's style doesn't make for particularly easy reading (I know it has been said that you won't find many thick Roxy fans, but I think some writers can be prone to over-intellectualising their music, rather than just enjoying it).

At the risk of being nominated for the Queen's Award For Pedantry, there are a couple of factual errors there; most notably, Marilyn Cole had graced the cover of Stranded, but had no involvement with Country Life.

As for the band's US record labels, the debut LP and Virginia Plain were released on Reprise, before their successors (FYP and Do The Strand, rather than Pyjamarama) were issued by the "parent" company Warner Bros.; subsequent albums (until Avalon, which was back on Warners) appeared on the ATCO subsidiary, rather than the main Atlantic label.

The Village Voice of the 1970s was a wondrous centerpiece of New York City Culture, especially for hipsters under 30 (or maybe even 40 or 50 or 60...)

I never lived in NYC, but every time I visited the VV was a must read!

Andy Warhol's Interview magazine was also a good read in those days (before AW started schmoozing with the Reagan crowd in the 80s). I'd be interested in reading anything that might have appeared in Interview related to BF or Roxy.

Thanks for posting Robertron!!
