Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera talks Uncut through the most fascinating albums of his career in the new issue, out on Monday (July 2).

Manzanera explains just why Roxy Music stood out when he joined them in February 1972, how he secretly worked on Brian Eno’s Here Come The Warm Jets at the same time as Roxy’s Stranded, and how working with David Gilmour and his impeccable sense of tuning was “a challenge”.

On recording Roxy’s second album, For Your Pleasure, Manzanera says: “We were going out on tour in a couple of weeks so it was quite demanding, but we were very excited, and hellbent on looking forward and doing something innovative.”

The guitarist also talks about his work on albums such as John Cale’s Fear, 801’s 801 Live and Quiet Sun’s Mainstream.

The new issue of Uncut (August 2012, Take 183) is out on Monday, July 2.
