Proxy Music - Yes!
Thanks to my pal, Gary W, for turning me on to this...the best cover version I've heard since Tropic of Cancer did "Upside Down." It's new UK band Proxy Music. I'm guessing they're mostly a Roxy tribute band, or maybe thats how they started? Anyway, on June 4 they have an excellent single coming out which is a reworking of "Lucky Number" by Lene Lovich. And yes, it sounds like Roxy Music playing it. The b-side is a more faithful version of Eno's "Baby's On Fire."
