"rhododendron is a nice flower"


maybe the greatest rock band of all time and bryan ferry is one of it's greatest most distinctive vocalists. it leaves you asking- why the fuck did jerri hall( the model on most roxy covers) leave him for crappy white blues jerk off mick jagger? this was recorded in the early 70s. these guys were so far ahead of their time it took everyone else over 10 years to catch up. and brian eno has had a profound influence on modern music from devo to elevator music . everyone from concrete blonde to siouxsie love roxy music and so should you. again, another phenominal group that never got their due in america until everyone else was trying to sound like they did back in the day( see ultravox and every other synthy prep boy band that the 80s dredged up). they wrote some of the most intelligent interesting pop songs and over 30 years later remain influential so much so there's barely anyone who can do an acceptable cover of them and get away with it-theyre that good and thus that much harder to cop.
