I used to regard Alan Titchmarsh as a bearable TV presenter. Until, that is, he told us that he is a raving monarchist and Tory supporter. I now switch to anything, including "BidUp TV" to avoid the smug so-and-so.
Roxy Music. Wonderful. Got their first album. Know the name of their drummer. Virginia Plain was one of the most superb pop creations ever.
But then I found out that Bryan Ferry's son is a raving hunt supporter (indeed, he works for a hunt). And Bryan Ferry created what has now been voted the most annoying moment in pop music history:
My God, the Nazis knew how to put themselves in the limelight... Leni Riefenstahl's movies, Albert Speer's buildings, the mass parades and the flags - just amazing. Really beautiful.
Bryan Ferry in 'Welt Am Sonntag'
I will never listen to Roxy Music again.
UPDATE: Thank you to Jock Coats and Well-behaved orphan for putting me right. I will continue to listen to the instrumentation on Roxy Music tracks. I had forgotten about Eno. Many apologies, in many ways he was the true genius behind Roxy Music anyway.
