John Foxx
Burning Car

Metamatic continue their obsession with John Foxx by compiling this collection of incredibly obscure B-sides, singles and rarities, some of which have never been pressed to vinyl before. The songs on Burning Car come from 1980, at the peak of Foxx’s skill in crafting sinister, futurist syn...view item »

John Foxx and Harold Budd
Translucence / Drift Music

The music on this pair of albums from 2003 is all about space, about sounds having the room to expand fully. John Foxx & Harold Budd used piano and ambient electronics to craft Translucence / Drift Music, and the results feel as though the piano is being held in suspended animation by endless tones. Quality ambience...view item »

John Foxx, Harold Budd and Ruben Garcia
Nighthawks

Ruben Garcia was a fellow traveller of Harold Budd’s, devoted to the same minimal, ambient style of piano Budd has perfected. Nighthawks joins the two, along with frequent Budd collaborator John Foxx, for another outing of suspended animation pian...view item »

John Foxx
London Overgrown

Hot on the heels of Metamatic’s reissues of some of John Foxx’s work with Harold Budd, they now present his brand new album, London Overgrown. The concept underpinning it all is indeed a dream of allowing plant life to stretch out its tendrils through the city, and these ideas are represente...view item »

John Foxx
20th Century: The Noise

John Foxx has been in the game since the seventies, when he was a founding member of Ultravox. Then he went solo, which is where this rather grandly-titled compilation 20th Century: The Noise picks up. Seventeen tracks from throughout his career, including some rarities and some of his collaborations wi...view item »

Ghost Harmonic
Codex

Ghost Harmonic combine violin with modular synth processing and modern recording techniques to create soundscapes that I would be inclined to describe as lush. Like a faster-moving Stars of the Lid perhaps? Codex is presented as a CD packaged within a limited edition hardback book, released by Metamatic...view item »

John Foxx & Steve D’agostino
Evidence Of Time Travel

Plenty of futurist vibes are on offer here with this collaborative effort from artists John Foxx and Steve D'agostino, who were commissioned to make 'Evidence of Time Travel', a synth-led piece with mechanical drum machines, for the British Film Institute's 'Sci Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder' festival. 'Evidence of Time Travel' is a collection of ...view item »

John Foxx
B-Movie (Ballardian Video Neuronica)

John Foxx is known for making unabashed synth pop with dark tendencies, but his new record, 'B-Movie (Ballardian Video Neuronica)', is largely instrumental, composed as a soundtrack for a film made between Fox and Karborn, as a tribute to literary type J G Ballard. The record also features contributions from two Foxx familiars, the Maths and Mr....view item »

John Foxx And The Maths
The Shape Of Things

Whilst his solo efforts tend to the more ambient/ethereal, it seems that no matter who Foxx collaborates with, they always manage to make a John Foxx album. This is certainly no exception and has all the proper ingredients - excellent synth sounds, interesting rhythms etc. John Foxx vocals are still the most futuristic, and astonishingly wed to ...view item »

John Foxx And The Maths
Interplay

More serious business coming my way. This time it's a collaboration between John Foxx (Ultravox) and producer Benge (synth power nerd) who are going all out with the analogue synths on 'Interplay'. There's a lot of boring nerd talk in the press release about how the album was recorded and what was used to achieve the desired results but today th...view item »

John Foxx & Louis Gordon
Crash and Burn (Deluxe Edition)

The John Foxx of the first Ultravox! record, of the mid-1970s, and the earlier Tiger Lily recordings, is fully present here; the vocal delivery, the music/arrangements, sound and the lyrics still send chills up this spine. The album's one weak spot is the odd "Ray 1/Ray 2" which sounds like the Silicon Teens all growed up. Why it's on this album...view item »
