Roxy Music

Roxy Music are an England based art rock group founded in 1971 by art school graduate Bryan Ferry (vocals and keyboards). Other members were Phil Manzanera (guitars), Andy Mackay (saxophone and oboe) and Paul Thompson (drums and percussion). Former members included Brian Eno (synthesizer and "treatments") and Eddie Jobson (synthesizer and violin), who replaced Eno after Roxy Music's second album.

The Sweet

Origins
Sweet's origins go back to 1965, with UK soul band "Wainwright's Gentlemen", which included drummer Mick Tucker and vocalist Ian Gillan. The group were limited to small UK clubs playing a mixture of R&B and psychedelia. Gillan quit in May 1965 to join Episode Six, and, later, Deep Purple. Gillan's eventual replacement was vocalist Brian Connolly. Tucker and Connolly remained with Wainwright's Gentlemen until early 1968.

With a new history on the road ripping apart venues L.U.S.T. have bonded with many Australian touring acts including LORD and the Hell City Glamours.
