I just bought this Norwegian book called Kunstrock. I haven't read it yet, but it tells stories about Roxy Music, David Bowie's Berlin period and Kraftwerk.

The book cover is very Stranded inspired (remember the inside of the fold-out lp cover?).

If there any news presented in the book, I'll let you know. ... d=14944215

I attended the author Torgrim Eggen`s lecture on Roxy`s first 2 albums called "Roxy Music i begynnelsen" (RM in the beginning) this autumn at Rockheim, Norway`s own museum on rock music, located in Trondheim, where I live. It was his last one of 3 lectures, where the 2 first ones dealt with Bowie and Kraftwerk, which I, however, didn`t attend. He knew his work, of course. Sound and vision went with it. Early Roxy had a special place in his heart, but there where brillant songs in the same vein on the other albums too, according to him. For example "Sentimental Fool", which ended the show. All in all; nicely done.
