When you can work out why pizza is made in a circle, sold in a square box and served in a triangle you'll be able to understand women.

Frankie Vaughan in a hunted house is such a brilliant put down, ditto the James Last tape. In fact its so tongue in cheek I suspect its a wind up and a very good one at that ;)

So many apocryphal stories about Roxy Music - here's another one:


In retrospect, guitarist Phil Manzanera admits he was in the right place at the right time when he joined Roxy Music in 1972. Barely in his 20s, he had previously auditioned for the British art-rock band – which included singer Bryan Ferry, keyboardist Brian Eno, saxophonist Andy Mackay, drummer Paul Thompson and bassist Graham Simpson – but lost out to David O'List, who played with the Nice.

Undeterred, Manzanera stayed close to the band as its roadie. So when O'List departed from the band, the other members didn't have to look far for his replacement.

“It's incredible,” Manzanera tells UCR. "I joined on the first week of February 1972. Our first contract [with E.G. Records] was signed. A month later, we were recording the first album [Roxy Music], and two months later it was out and was No. 4 on the charts. So I came in at the last minute, and boom! I'm so lucky that these guys had faith in me at that point, and here we are 47 years later.”

Davy O'List had quite an interesting career too, There's a short bio I wrote on him, as part of my Farcebook series on British guitarists.
