#111 - Avalon - Roxy Music

Opération Séduction 13: Mouchoir de Monsieur

Mouchoir de Monsieur means a “gentleman’s handkerchief,” a masculine accessory which has today atrophied into the ignoble “pocket square.” During the Belle Époque before WWI, elegant men would offer their perfumed hankies to the ladies who strolled on their arms down the boulevards of Paris. 2,530 more words

Easy Listening

The Bryan Ferry & Roxy Music Album By Album Thread

“For the last ten years I have had a dismal output of work,” Ferry would confess to the Times in 1993. “It’s because I got very self-conscious about bringing out a new album, conscious of what I was trying to beat and determined to write my masterpiece… the first problem was that the technology got more and more sophisticated so my opportunities expanded and the possibilities became endless.” The new album was originally to be called Horoscope, and initially Ferry was upbeat about the prospects of releasing it quite quickly after the relative failure of Bete Noire. 172 more words
