Mes Amis,
Over the years many artists have sighted Ferry/Roxy as a huge influence : Nile Rogers, Siouxie and the Banshees, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Radiohead, Scissor Sisters, Talking Heads, Goldfapp, and Pulp to name but a few.
Ironically, many of the aforementioned are either retired or disbanded but happily W2 has long thought that Ferry’s musical heir is from the next generation and is well and truly in our midsts.
It is, of course, that incredibly talented artist from the city where they call you ‘Love’. W2 is talking about Sheffield’s very own Alex Turner.
The parallels between Turner and Ferry are multiple.
Both are from the North. Both are renowned for their lyricism ranging from kitchen sink realism to surrealist wordplay.
Both are stylish frontmen in a successful band whilst simultaneously persuing successful side projects.
Just listen to his 2022 album ‘The Car’ and you will know what W2 means. It’s a tremendous fusion of Baroque Pop and Art Rock that is shot thru’ with Jazz influences. Vraiment tres Ferryesque .
What thinketh you learned Roxologists. Is the heir within our midsts ?
