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."

So I'm guessing in the tradition of 'Roxy, that this covergirl is actually a TV or TS? It COULD look so...or does it? So is this ironic? New to yew? Or just a chance to revisity andedu-tain those NOT in the know. Don't get me wrong, at 60 years I'm a big fan of 70s glam-new wave. Hmmm....maybe Peteski summed it up and I'm wasting my time and breath?

Hey Duncan - Your comment about her being a TS or TV might be right...it never crossed my mind. I think Peteski summed it up though...he usually does!
