100 indie points available for saying talking heads
Roxy only really have 3 I've really heard
I'll pick the Velvet Underground anyway
considering how all the indie kids like Eno and other vaguely related 70s english artrock (like Robert Wyatt, and ... other stuff), I don't think they give Roxy Music anywhere near the #RESPECT they deserve
all of them eh
The bit at 2.38 when Bryan moves from mic to keyboard is as cool as fuck. Byrne always reminded me of the kid at school who tried really hard to act weird & arty but could never pull it off. Very "WE ARE WEIRD!" as Bernard Sumner once put it.
favorite child. Impossible.
Both bands were game-changingly awesome and then turned to shit. These days I only really enjoy the first three TH albums, while I can listen to the first five RM albums quite happily. Plus I think RM have a sort of x-factor that TH lack, look at some of their old clips from 1971-72 and they really are like creatures from another planet. So Roxy Music it is.
Damn fine as TH are, RM are my favourite band of all time (bar, possibly, the stooges). Bryan Ferry is massively underrated as a songwriter. I know its partly his own fault for being maddeningly mediocre for the last 35-ish years but his peak, whilst short, was better than anyone else the UK has produced.
but i've listened to a bit of the first roxy music album which has some fine tunes on the first half, especially 2hb - a totemic 70s song in my book.
so on those shaky groups and on the basis that i don't really care for indie points, roxy music.
there was a real rush on them up top
There is a SECRET message hidden at the end of this post. FUCK YE! lmao
