Here's Looking at You Kid
Do you fancy some early Roxy Music? Yup, thought so. Here are a couple of songs from their eponymous debut album from way back in 1972.
43 years ago FFS. And without Roxy there would almost certainly have been no Franz Ferdinand or Sparks and therefore no FFS.
An art school band and pretty radically different from most of those who had gone before.
Whereas Bryan Ferry wrote all the tracks it is very much a Roxy Music record as opposed to a Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music album. That would come later.
Contributions from the other members, Graham Simpson, Andy Mackay. Eno, Paul Thompson and Phil Manzanera are also very much to the fore.
If this has whetted your appetite for some early Roxy pop across to Walter's place for a German TV concert from 1973.
