It's been a long, strange trip for glam art-rockers and Picnic headliners Roxy Music. In an exclusive interview ahead of their long-awaited return to Ireland they talk about taking tea with Salvador Dali, being 'shafted' by Jethro Tull and gush about their love for Godspeed You Black Emperor.
Anyone who doubts Roxy Music's ability to deliver the goods 40 years down the line is advised to Google the band's recent two-song set on the final Friday Night With Jonathan Ross show. It's not so much that 'Virginia Plain' and 'Love Is The Drug' haven't dated – they still, against all odds, sound positively extra-terrestrial.
