And so the big strapping lad from a Durham pit village wears some eyeliner and the rest is history. Mr. Ferry always seemed quite comfortable in his glam. More so than say Mick Ronson, I always imagined him telling Bowie, in his Humberside accent, I’ll wear the eyeliner, David, but I draw the line at lipstick, northern men and glam, eh.
I still think Re-Make/Re-Model is one the best opening tracks of any album, with big bald Bry’s synth from the moon. Then, bam, Ladytron, the best track 2 of any album.
