Unknown Pleasures : Cultural Biography of "Roxy Music" Paperback


Roxy Music's mix of Bryan Ferry's sexual posturing and Brian Eno's synthesizer experimentation, along with Stockhausen and Stax, exploded with an energy unlike that of any other pop band -- ensuring an unbroken string of Top 10 albums.

As Roxy Music evolved, their dazzling mix of space suits and 1950s haircuts gave way to lounge-lizard chic, and the band managed to become both a pop icon and a respected musical entity.Eclectic and effervescent, Unknown Pleasures is a celebration of Roxy Music and popular culture in the 1970s.
