Because We Can: Roxy Music–Remake/Remodel w/Brian Eno

February 17th, 2009 · 1 Comment

This is a fucking classic we tripped across and had never seen. Check out Brian Eno with the glam look and hair. This is the stuff from which all else of any value evolved through the 70s, punk included. Sorry if some of the people watching this weren’t even born when this performance was recorded.

    You can hear elements of Talking Heads and other “bands to come” but also hear the Bowie/Mott the Hoople influence on them. If I remember my legends correctly, Bowie became Ziggy only after coveting Alice Cooper’s gender-bender success. Eno had a hand in steering Bowie’s career earlier on before the Low/Heroes/Lodger trilogy as well. And all of them were desperately in love with Marc Bolan. Poor thing.
