Artist: Roxy Music Track: "Do the Strand" Album: For Your Pleasure Listen
The first concert I ever went to was a reunion show of Roxy Music at Cleveland Music Hall, which makes me super cool. Why? Because when most were trying to convince their parents to escort them to see New Kids on the Block, my dad and I were hip to the music of the most fascinating glam group in rock history -- an inimitable collective that blended art rock, mainstream classic melodies and the sleek, shiny productions values that glam once was before guitarists looking for a good reason to wear ruby lipstick co-opted the genre.
Here's an awesome review of a great album.
