Mick Ronson: Slaughter On 10th Avenue; Roxy Music: Stranded

Michael Gross, Circus, December 1973

AND WHEN THE kids had killed the man they had to break up the band... almost. Now that the glitter thunder is over, perhaps it'll be easier to look at some bands without worrying about images. To look at Roxy Music without Eno and to look at the Spiders from Mars without Ziggy would both have seemed pointless a year ago. Now it's necessary. Ladies and gentleman, the second generation of glitter!! How do they fare?
