Biography

From their earliest steps, Roxy left a massive footprint on British popular culture. They were formed in 1971 by Ferry, Mackay and Brian Eno, the axis completed with Manzanera's official arrival early next year, by which time the music press was buzzing. Their self-titled debut album in the summer of '72 - declared by many then and ever since as the best first album ever - cleared the path for a saunter into the UK top five by the ravishingly stylish first single "Virginia Plain".

From their earliest steps, Roxy left a massive footprint on British popular culture. They were formed in 1971 by Ferry, Mackay and Brian Eno, the axis completed with Manzanera's official arrival early next year, by which time the music press was buzzing. Their self-titled debut album in the summer of '72 - declared by many then and ever since as the best first album ever - cleared the path for a saunter into the UK top five by the ravishingly stylish first single "Virginia Plain". Before the year ended, Roxy had completed their opening tours of both the UK and US. For once, fans in the industry and in the real world were unanimous: here was a triumph of style AND substance.

Almost everything that happened chez Roxy during the next decade, and seven more studio albums, has become part of the fabric of rock history, from rule-trashing singles like "Pyjamarama", "Street Life" and "Love Is The Drug" to Bryan's ever-influential wardrobe and those legendary album covers. Three times they topped the album charts during their active lifetime, with 1973's "Stranded", 1980's "Flesh and Blood" and their last studio album "Avalon", and it wasn't long before the compilation album "Street Life" raced to No.1 in 1986 and stayed there five weeks. The more recent remastered reappearance of the entire Roxy catalogue, and the rapturous reviews it engendered, confirmed that the legacy had only appreciated with time. Ferry's 1999 solo album "As Time Goes By" gained significant recognition with a Grammy 2001 nomination.

For all the imitators and admirers, no one has ever successfully cloned the unique and unknowable combination of elements that comprised Roxy Music. Three decades later take your partners: it's time, again, to...do the strand.
