Midge's solo career has never scaled the heights of Ultravox (unless you compare it to U-Vox...).

I find it fantastic that Midge took career advice in 1984 from someone who hadn't had a hit single since 1982, and is not considered either a good solo artist or even a good songwriter. Mind, Sir Bob is/was an opinionated tw*t, so would do you expect? banghead
