Roxy Music

Roxy Music were one of the most influential, innovative and interesting bands ever. They were also one of the most barmy. Bryan Ferry's quivering, off kilter operatic vocals warbled and wobbled all over the place around the mad guitars, sax and stuff of {hil Manzanera & Andy Mackay. And when they released their eponymous first album they also had Brian Eno, avatar of all things ambient, in their ranks, making more strange noises on improbable instruments. This is obviously a fabulous record. Songs like the gently epic Sea Breezes will wash your soul clean, Ladytron is fab, foxy and groovy and Bitters End is just the sound of a brilliantly barking mad band. Virgin Records have reissued five of Roxy Music's best records (there's this one, For Your Pleasure, Country Life, Stranded and Siren); all you have to do is go out there and collect the set.
