Windswept2: The venue held about 200 and that particular night it was about two-thirds full. Nobody had heard of Roxy and expectations were non existent. The crowd were regulars who would have been there anyway.
All of that made the show all the more spectacular and when they struck up it was truly like being transported to a different planet.
The music just made so much sense and there costumes totally added to the whole cinematic effect. Even Andy's codpiece looked good !
They were clearly rehearsed to death and W2 remembers immediately thinking this is the future and the past rolled into one. Ferry and Mackay were particularly spectacular. The crowd were completely intoxicated by the Roxy cocktail from the get go.
I know that feeling. I have experienced it at least 3 times at concerts. Unfortunately not at Roxy/Ferry-gigs, since I have always known everything inside out. It's a feeling that's good for your soul.
Once was at a concert with this guy, and this is a snippet from that particular gig. Maybe some of you will get an idea of what it was like. Out of this world.
A good example and as you doubtless know ‘The Feather Boa’ also made a contribution to Heat !
It’s interesting the way people watch or don’t watch gigs these days (those bloody phones).
Happily, back in the day, you often saw a band with little or no prior experience of their music. Quite often bands toured extensively before they had a record deal.
W2 remembers well being in ‘The Kirk’ one night in ‘67 and seeing Hendrix without having a clue as to who he was.
He struck up with ‘Wild Thing’ that was not particularly well received but things went wild when he got into his own stuff.
