Music Minute: “My Only Love” by Roxy Music

These guys are legends, and their music echoes like the voice of a lost memory. Dreams, and fantasy, illusion, and grandeur – these are all summoned by their music. Formed in 1971, Roxy Music lives on today as one of the most popular bands there have ever been, and were even honoured by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the “Immortal” in a list of their 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

We’d have to go ahead, and add them to our Best-Dressed Artists of All Time list with their wild nod to the past injected with the blinding buzz of Glam Rock England. We included a few pictures of these Idols, and were hoping the song be a great way to settle down into the night.

And what do you know? Looks like foil metallics and leopard print are right on their way back, so watch out! Also green suits, mysteriously enough . . .

Hope you enjoy.

{STYLE-WISE} Do it Right! Vintage Dress the Part – Kurt Cobain’s “Heart Shaped Box”

She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak . . . 

This past September marked the 20th Anniversary of Nirvana’s stellar, and ultimately last, music video “Heart Shaped Box”. Directed by Anton Corbijn, the video is a surreal and disturbing vision of death and disease. It is a colourful combination of the familiar and the insane which make this video a great one.

  • KURT COBAIN: “Actually, “Heart-Shaped Box’ might’ve been one of my pieces of poems. I know a lot of the words to that song are from poems. It’s just another of those songs that are pretty much wordplay. I didn’t have any specific idea.”

  • Melody Maker: So they’re not intended to mean anything?

  • KURT COBAIN: “No. And the pieces of poetry are taken from poems that don’t usually have meaning in the first place. They were cut-ups themselves. And often I’ll have to obscure the pieces I take to make them fit in the song, so they’re not even true pieces of poem. But this is the first record where I’ve written at least a couple of songs thematically. Scentless Apprentice’ is one, and ‘Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle’ is about her, (Frances Farmer) about the way she was exploited in her life.”

  • So there ya have it kids. I know Courtney wants the world to think “Heart Shaped Box” was about her vag but according to Kurt Cobain, it wasn’t.

Not only are the visuals striking (same goes to the enchanting lyrics), so is the fashion, which represents the epitome of Grunge style at its most wild and excessive.

While we often think of Kurt Cobain in his signature wooly cardigans, and almost Grandpa gone bad style; here Cobain has embraced his rockstar qualities and ventures to a more glam version of the Grunge style that even veers into the world of high fashion.

His iconic metallic silver button down shirt he wears throughout the video (overtop a signature Cobain black and white stripe shirt) was in fact provided by the equally iconic Jean Paul Gaultier, who dressed the band for the video. Gaultier was at the height of his unique take of Grunge style that was overtaking the industry throughout the late 80s and early 90s, so this combination of the two (Gaultier & Cobain) is nothing except magical.

Since this tidbit had been revealed to us during the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit a few years ago in Montreal, the idea of this sort of piece has been branded in our memory as a must-have stand out piece for our closet. It took many years, but we found one, and every time it is adorned within an outfit it is a bonafide hit.

We thought we might never find another one, but alas, our luck has been on high as of late, and we found perhaps even a better representation of this high fashion glam grunge ideal of a metallic silver foil shirt in a remarkable piece by Marc Alan that is straight out of the period and looking for a new home!

Check it out, and maybe it’s for you. The right one will come along. They always do . . .
