Inspired by completing this today (where Ferry gets much more of a roasting than is strictly necessary) and tuning into this from Mick over at Raiding The Vinyl Archive – I’m on a right ol’ Roxy buzz.
So how about the overlooked and underplayed great ‘ lost‘ single ‘Pyjamarama’ – apparantley the band never rated it and even Eno claimed ‘ Do The Strand’ should have been released instead. Nonsense I say! ‘Pyjamarama’ is perfect pop – all fizz and glitter, like Motown gone glam, and conforms to Paul Morley’s theory that all pop songs are truly great if…
“you can imagine them being sung by Elvis”.
And a Roxy refresher (like anyone who’s read this far needs it!!)
How great they were…
Roxy Music – ‘Ladytron'(1973)
And still are….
Roxy Music – ‘Remake/Remodel'(2001)
