pick a favourite artsy pop/rock band of these two giants of inovative pop, both band wrote the rules pop bands and producers use today

I prefer 10CC (art rock) somewhat above Roxy Music (fashion rock).

Roxy. For me, I've never considered Roxy pop. Art/glam rock yes. 10cc, art/prog pop.

There's rather too much method behind the madness -- deliberately humorous -- to be really insane (in a literal sense), but I do know what you mean ;) and it's fun stuff (I, on the hand, am rather more insane).  I wonder if another rather crazy, or tongue-in-cheek band, the Cardiacs were influenced by 10cc (as well as other humorous ones).  Thanks for the clip.  I didn't really know 10cc and just found out what the spunky  band name references).  I used to like Roxy Music's debut.  I won't vote due to lack of familairity with 10cc, but will be looking into the band.

more crazy music Shocked
 
 
and also 10cc knows how to make a epic song, thye are the poppy equivlent of Gentle Giant
 
also Eric Stewart is the most underrated singer/guitarist in rock, this comes from a Roger Hodgson fan Tongue,  Erics singing voice is really good, and his guitar technique and guitar (Gibson les paul Shocked,) is stunning

Roxy Music always had strong prog credentials with Davy O'List,John Wetton and Eddie Jobson in their line up at one time or another.''Viva! Roxy Music'' is one of my favourite live albums.
10CC were a very clever pop band. Quite fond of them especially thanks to Rubber Bullets which seemed very important to me at the time.
Sparks were the other clever pop band of the time.This Town Aint Big Enough For The Both Of Us another brilliant art pop/rock hit from that time.

yup, 10CC no match (i'd have included Queen in this poll as well)
 
 
Actually there are only two roxy album¨s worth hearing... the first two with Eno... the rest is insipid pop with a crooner boy ahead of the band.

I voted for 10cc, because of the talents and inventive nature of the band members and what they produced; but Roxy had far more style and the bravery to challenge the mainstream of their time, so it was a difficult choice.

Roxy Music. They've always seemed more interesting to me than 10cc, I guess.

Certainly more intense with a darker edge. 10CC were more light hearted although they were very welcome.
