RoxyMania! Re-Turned/Re-Tuned

Leave a comment

February 21, 2013 by admin

Back in January 2010, Alfred Soto and I embarked on a multi-part, many-hours discussion of Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music. Well, three years and two Bryan Ferry projects later, we’re back at it, this time joined by fellow music writer (and Roxy/Ferry enthusiast) Ned Raggett. The three of us spend most of the following 85-minute podcast (spliced into three sections) chatting about The Jazz Age, the newly released CD containing Roxy and Ferry covers, performed not by Bryan Ferry (who appears to be but a spectral presence overlooking the entire thing) but rather, by an entity called The Bryan Ferry Orchestra. As well, we take a couple brief detours into Ferry’s 2010 solo album, Olympia. Unremarkably, we lack not for banter.

Thanks, Alfred and Ned–I’m sure we’ll meet again.
