To the Strand.

Roxy notes:

Out this month from independent publisher Chicago Review, The Thrill of It All: The Story of Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music, by David Buckley, author of The Complete Guide to the Music of David Bowie. This week's Publishers Weekly review calls it "alternately page-turning, tedious and gossipy."

Beaten to the punch and due in June, Both Ends Burning: The Complete Roxy Music, by Jonathan Rigby, author of a Christopher Lee bio and English Gothic: A Century of Horror Cinema.

Also in June, Roxy Music plays the Isle of Wight festival. A publishing rule of thumb appears to be coalescing, that with the reunion tour comes the book(s).
