Unknown Pleasures : Cultural Biography of "Roxy Music" Paperback / softback


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.
