Harley Davidson Euro Fest Advert – And Roxy Music New Fan Letter Of Thanks – R&F Magazine – Mai 2018

More of my Belgian clippings shared. An advert for tomorrow’s Minds gig as well as a letter from a reader on their discovery of Roxy Music…running strange parallels with my own recent Roxy epiphany. I do love the cartoon type artwork of the early Roxy band dynamic. Google Translate didn’t do the best work translating the French, but we get the gist of the letter (see translation below).

Anyway…there will be more things on the way. I love sharing these clippings. All part of the service here at Prip’s blog 🙂

In the simple past – Having already heard of the band Roxy Music without listening, I hastened to read the article on the latter. [I assume that means the previous edition of the magazine] In devouring the text I was attracted by the phrase “The most important band of England after the Beatles.” Could it be that I missed such a phenomenon I immediately began to listen to the band’s first album and from the first notes I was dazzled, no doubt this album was one of the most important that rock has known, so I want to thank you for making me discover such a group.

Sounds like me with Ms Deboick (and to some extent, compounded by Sir Kerr, aka The Boy).

Piss Arf Jacko’s “Pubes”!

Michael Jackson’s pubes, more like! Hiding under an alias as you OBVIOUSLY have no taste! Two of the best songs of 1983…and I say this NOT as the Minds fan I am today…but as that 13 year old back in Oz who heard the song on the radio, conjured up such stark imagery with it, and thought it was one of the best things I’d ever heard. Genuinely…the first Simple Minds song I remember really being caught by.

I wasn’t aware of PiL at the time…but This Is Not A Love Song…the right version…is ‘king awesome!

NO TASTE!
