John Foxx
Metamatic (Deluxe)

John Foxx left Ultravox to be replaced as singer by Midge Ure. Metamatic, originally released in 1980, was his first solo effort. Whilst sticking with electronic music, Foxx eschwed the soft synth convention of Ultravox to create a harder-edged, less commercial sound. This 3-CD reissue comes in a clamshell case with 6 art cards and a 40 page booklet. For the uninitiated, fans of Gary Numan et al should check this out.

John Foxx and The Maths
The Machine

This is a specially composed soundtrack for an adaptation of EM Forster's short story The Machine Stops which explores our increasingly complex relationship with technology. This eerie and evocative score was composed by electronic music veteran John Foxx working along side Benge. Artwork is by the people responsible for the sleeve design on David Bowie's Blackstar and The Next Day albums. 

He's A Liquid

Extremely limited vinyl 12” compilation from Metamatic records. This EP collects various covers of songs from John Foxx’x Metamatic album, all by artists he loved. The tunes on He’s A Liquid are diverse, but they’re all indebted to Foxx’s abrasive and melancholic approach to synth-pop.
