Nah not really.

David Byrnes wishes he was Bryan Ferry

As I've said on this board before
Roxy Music ushered in everything you know from early 80's uk
from sound to style

the cure, U2, frick any band that even remotely resembles that sound. Pixies, whoever the frick
it's Roxy Music

LINK


but they did it in 75'

Yeah, when spouting off knowledge, perhaps you should know one of the most influential bands of the past 25 years.

U2 and the Pixies sound about as alike as the Velvet Underground and the Rolling Stones. Sure, they both have guitars.

And I like Roxy Music.

love is a drug is umm..practically the same as psycho killer
how can you not hear that?

Don't be embarrassed because I burst your bubble on that call

And
btw
If listening to Roxys greatest hits or having a listen on Pandora is your extent of 'liking' Roxy
then you don't know Roxys

Listen to roxy's Siren album, David Byrne without a doubt listened to that album
1000 times , if not more


Um U2 and all those Bands have their own flavor for sure, but if you can't hear a lineage in music, then you just need to dig a little deeper

You say U2 and the Pixies don't sound alike.

I'd respect you more if you'd said West African Drumming and ELO were different.
those don't sound alike

Why?
this is a music board were people should be exposed as much as possible regardless of your opinion on specific singers
and...

I like both singers, but David Byrne is not nearly as impactful as Bryan Ferry was in the world of music.
I'm sorry, he's just not

I'm sure David Byrne would tell you the same thing.

But the problem with you is you have limited knowledge of Bryan Ferry, where as I have knowledge of both

Oh, I know Roxy Music influenced Talking Heads. But the Heads are far more herky-jerky, have less disco influence and more of a punk influence, and don't have lyrics written by Bryan Ferry. Which is a positive. And Psycho Killer is from their first album, and the Heads sound grew a lot from there, adding a lot of funk and world music to the mix and away from their art-punk roots. Look, Brian Eno produced the Talking Heads, so the Roxy link is pretty obvious.

I have no problems saying Roxy Music influenced the Heads. I do have a problem saying Roxy Music influenced the Pixies and all music in the 80s all that heavily. I think Roxy Music heavily influenced 80s "new wave". I have no problem with that. And while U2 isn't a classic New Wave band, they certainly had strong ties to that scene.

But the Pixies? Hardcore explicitly rejected New Wave and its art school pretensions. Black Francis couldn't play an instrument at all at first, and Joey Santiago pretty much tried to squeal out bizarre sounds. Their experimentation with sound was far more rooted in Mission of Burma and the Minutemen than Roxy Music. If you want to go back to the 70s for the bands that came out of hardcore, there is an influence from T. Rex and the power pop of Big Star.

not everyone jerked off to English rock stars. In fact, one of the big movements of 80s American indie was the explicit rejection of anything European or even art school at all.

U2 and the Pixies don't have a lot in common other than they are both rock bands from the 80s that started outside the mainstream, albeit from entirely different places. U2 is European, anthemic, and heavily reliant on the echo pedal. The Edge is sort of a genius with that thing. The Pixies are a post-hardcore American DIY band which relied very little on musicianship at first, and took the softLOUDsoft formula to its extremes.

I like Roxy Music. they are incredibly influential. So influential there's no reason to make up their influence to things they didn't do. Their legacy is secure without claiming the aftermath of American hardcore.
