Hello all Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music fans. Wanted to let you know of new posts on roxymusicsongs.com

'Do the Strand' is analyzed and comes out a darker song than its infectious beat suggests. A welcome entry into the masterpiece For Your Pleasure.

Hi Kevin,

excellent stuff, thank you very much!

Btw I just found this article here claiming that theSex Pistols originally wanted to go by the name "The Strand":

Quote:
But they never went by the band's very earliest name, which was an homage to the glam band that inspired group that influenced the punk rockers.

"We got our original name — The Strand — from 'Do the Strand', the first track on the second Roxy Music album," Jones wrote. And we have to wonder if he's pulling our leg since it's hard to imagine the snarling Sex Pistols enjoying the tender crooning of Bryan Ferry.

The last sentence is :roll: but nevermind. I've always wondered if the famous "No Future" slogan was actually inspired by Mother of Pearl.
