Re-Make/Re-Model: Becoming Roxy Music
Publisher: Da Capo PressFormat: Paperback
In 1972 an English rock band released its first album to instant critical acclaim: “Roxy Music.” Here was a group that looked as though it came not only from another era, but also from another planet-a band in which art, fashion, and music would combine to create, in Bryan Ferry's words, “above all, a state of mind.” Written with the assistance, for the first time, of all those involved, including Bryan Ferry, Brian Eno, Andy Mackay, and Phil Manzanera, "Re-Make/Re-Model" tells how Pop Art, the 1960s underground, and Swinging London were transformed into a unique sound and look-theatrical, arch, literate, clever, sexy, thrilling. In the tradition of Jean Stein and George Plimpton's “Edie,” "Re-Make/Re-Model" is the story of extraordinary individuals and exceptional creativity-and nothing less than the history of an era in music and pop culture.
