Headline: Ferry finds whole new way to re-release 'The Best of Roxy Music' shock.

"If there was ever a musical icon and a decade destined to come together it is Bryan Ferry and the roaring 20's. The artist - a creative powerhouse, with a dazzling career of endless surprise, delight and innovation; the Decade - a time of turbulent decadence, modernity, mayhem and the era of the bright young things - each driven on by the Thrill Of It All."

Jeepers, that's a bit of a heavy handed way of saying Ferry is now willing to perform his music as an ironic festival support act; possibly supporting The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.

Volume 2 will no doubt also be played out from the speaker of a mobile phone in a toilet and defined as innovation.

Volume 6 Punk

Volume 9 Dubstep

Volume 14 in the style of John Cage's opus 4'33"

Actually while I'm on John Cage, he has a useful quote:
"I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm frightened of the old ones."

And for the sake of balance, I do like what I've heard, but perhaps it's almost not seemly for an artist to do it to their own works this way.
