Biography

London, England (1971 – 1983, 2001 – present)

Roxy Music is a British group which formed in 1971 in London, England. Led throughout by Bryan Ferry (vocals, keyboards), the band attained popular and critical success in Europe and Australia during the 1970s and early 1980s, beginning with their 1972 eponymous debut album. Over its time, the band has been highly influential as leading proponents of the more genre-bending, musically-sophisticated elements of , as well as providing a model for many acts and groups of the early 1980s.

The band’s original lineup consisted of Bryan Ferry (vocals, keyboards), Phil Manzanera (guitar), Andy Mackay (saxophone, oboe), Brian Eno (synthesizer, “treatments”), Graham Simpson (bass) and Paul Thompson (drums, percussion). Simpson left the band in 1972, and Eno left in 1973. After Eno left the band, he was replaced by Eddie Jobson (synthesizer, violin).

Roxy Music were a significant influence on the early English punk movement, as well as providing a model for many “New Wave” acts and the subsequent New Romantic and experimental electronic groups of the early 1980s. Ferry and co-founding member Brian Eno have also had broadly influential solo careers. Brian Eno has emerged as one of the most significant record producers of the late 20th century, with credits including landmark albums by David Bowie, Devo, Talking Heads, The Slits, and U2. Eno is widely credited for coining the term - - and has collaborated with, and/or produced such important artists as Daniel Lanois,Harold Budd, David Byrne, Robert Fripp (King Crimson ), Cluster, Jon Hassell, and Jah Wobble, among many others.

    Кроме того, что Roxy Music - это крестные отцы новой волны, они еще и выпустили потрясающий Avalon, один из главных альбомов новой романтики

    If Neil Young is "the godfather of grunge" then Bryan Ferry is the godfather of new wave. Without RM, Duran Duran et al would not exist.

    So... what's the deal with 'More Than This' being the most listened to track on here, by a long way? I mean, it's a great song... but is it better than 'Mother of Pearl' or 'Psalm' or '2 H.B.' or 'If There Is Something' or 'Out of the Blue' etc?
