More Than This – The Roxy Music Story

More Than This – The Roxy Music Story

After a break of 25 years, the original members of Roxy Music return to the studio to record new material. With the promise of a new album and with exclusive access to the band members, all the key characters and never before seen footage, this is the definitive Roxy Music Story.

The film traces the musical development of the group from 1972 up to the present day, and we discover how Roxy Music influenced a generation of musicians such as Siouxsie and The Banshees, The Sex Pistols, Duran Duran, Chic, Human League and U2 and why they are still a musical force to be reckoned with today and can still be heard in bands such as Goldfrapp and Franz Ferdinand. Tracks include Virginia Plain, Do The Strand, Street Life, Love Is The Drug, Dance Away, Jealous Guy, and Avalon.

Bryan Ferry, Brian Eno, Phil Manzanera, Andy Mackay, Paul Thomson, Eddie Jobson and Gary Tibbs give exclusive interviews for the programme.

Other contributors include Bono, Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, Siouxsie Sioux, Nile Rodgers of Chic, John Taylor of Duran Duran, Alison Goldfrapp, Martyn Ware of Human League, producers Chris Thomas and Rhett Davies, mix engineer Bob Clearmountain, Artist Tim Head, Journalists Richard Williams and Tim de Lisle, writers Simon Reynolds and Michael Bracewell.
