Mick Ronson: Slaughter On 10th Avenue (RCA APLI-0353); Roxy Music: Stranded (Atco SD 7045)

Michael Gross, Crawdaddy!, July 1974

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 gentlemen, the second generation of glitter!! How do they fare?
