Roxy Music – i anledning af et jubilæum

26. januar 2012

I år er det 40 år siden Roxy Music debuterede med det selvbetitlede, fotomodelbesmykkede album. Gruppen var blevet dannet året før af Bryan Ferry og basisten Graham Simpson og kernen kom til at omfatte Phil Manzanera (gt), Andy Mackay (saxofon m.m.), Paul Thompson (trommer og slagtøj). I starten var den musikalske troldmand Brian Eno også med.

Med det rÃ¥ debutalbum lykkedes det for Roxy Music at skabe en art rock, der bÃ¥de stod til halsen i traditionen (Beatles, halvtredserrock m.m.) og var gennemsyret af samtidens glamrock (Bowie, Reed, Bolan), electronica, punk og new wave. Og det hele blev spundet sammen af en sofistikeret musikalsk tilgang, der matchede forgrundsfigur Bryan Ferrys smag for fotomodeller, dyrt tøj og aftershave – og sørgede for at den musikalske eklekticisme blev ophøjet til stil.

Pladen udkom midt i 1972, og i anledning af 40-Ã¥ret udsendes bandets samlede studioproduktion i en boks med titlen: Roxy Music: The Complete Studio Recordings 1972-1982. Boksen indeholder otte album, 4 DVD’er plus det obligatoriske antal bonusnumre i form af singler, remix m.m. Boksen kommer til april.
