since the djs are sleeping I'll toss one more on the bar-b-q
There were essentially three versions of Roxy Music. The Eno Years '71-'73, which encompassed the first two records Roxy Music and For Your Pleasure--and featured an experimental, avant garde, glam rock group. The second version was the Sophisticated Rocker period '74-'75 during which the band blossomed musically and they released the incredible 3 album run of Stranded, Country Life and Siren, after which the group broke up to pursue solo ventures. In 1979, the band reformed and lastly (also sadly least) became the dance-pop Roxy Music/what would become solo BRIAN FERRY that would be the most successful version of the band. In their defense, this period did produce the lushly beautiful Avalon, and Manifesto has it's moments. Still, the era pales in comparison to the first 5 albums, IMHO.
From Avalon (and obviously lip-synched) 1982
We'll end on their swell cover of John Lennon's "Jealous Guy", a song Bryan Ferry makes his own.
John Lennon was killed 35 years ago yesterday (we're more reactive around here).
If you want a tie in with yesterday's video, I guess both Lennon and Gallagher were pretty big assholes. Does that work?
Here's British wunderkind Jake Bugg with some Holiday cheer.
