Ladytron; a Roxy Music tale and Babylon Berlin

I have been on the Roxy Music trail for a few days now since making this playlist. No hits on this list just extremely enticing and perplexing tracks from one of my favourite bands. Almost everything from the majestic Roxy Music 1, For your pleasure I found the title track to be the most perplexing and least obvious. I love Serenade from Stranded and most of if not all of Siren…remember; no hits

Now I find out that Bryan Ferry has contributed 13 songs to the new blockbuster German period drama ‘Babylon Berlin’ on Netflix. Just tonight on episode 8 I heard ‘Bitters End’ from the first Roxy album but treated in an authentic 1920s jazz way.

We are up to episode 9 out of 12 and it is fantastic viewing. lizzi is loving the little historical insights I’m giving her to the time in 1929 Germany and the Weimar Republic
