Roxy Music, 1972

Roxy Music, 1972. Paul Thompson, drummer, in the caveman shirt; Bryan Ferry in black; Brian Eno in the gold pants, Phil Manzanera and Graham Simpson (I think); and Andy Mackay in the shiny green leprechaun vampire jacket and oboe. See them perform their debut single Virginia Plain dressed in the above outfits, on UK TV music show Top of the Pops, 1972. And hear the BBC talk about Roxy’s invention of glam and their controversial appearance on the denim-dominated BBC show Old Grey Whistle Test in 1972, which includes video of their performance of Do The Strand on that show. Eno and Mackay’s outfits alone make it worth watching Ladytron and Editions of You. Below, Roxy Music at Massey Hall, Toronto, 1974, having sadly lost Brian Eno, by jlacop.

    Bryan needs to put that cigarette down and eat a couple cheeseburgers or something.

    Check out 801, a group with Eno and Manzanera:

    That 801 tracks sounds very Eno. Who here looks like Riff Raff trying to play Nosferatu. I always thought Herzog based Kinski’s makeup on Bryan.
