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.

    "i think Can and Roxy Music were kindof the pinnacles of post punk" Um. You do realise both bands pre-date punk rock and their artistic excesses were part of the reason why punk rock was created in the first place? Both bands were very influential on the post-punk movement, but claiming they were a part of that scene is ridiculous.

    Romance, class, beauty, funk and badassness all in one band. Roxy Music is the definition of glam rock.

    Too bad '80s' is one of their most popular tags while the majority of their output was made in the 70s.

    Everybody -fan or no fan- should buy The Complete Studio Recordings 1972-1982 box set. Only £40 on Amazon UK at the moment. Every studio album is on there + every B-side/alternative mix/remix on a 2-disc set. All this in SUPERB sound quality, no bad remastering/compression/loudness or whatever. Just FLAT transfers of the original master tapes. So the sound as it was meant to be. A treatment of their catalogue I could only dream of would happen to a lot of other great bands.
