This 'ere website:

http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/2463/foxxnews.html

says that JF did a session for OGWT (Underpass & Blurred Girl) in 1980 - is this true? I have never heard of or seen this performance anywhere.

I think it is true going by memory, but it may of been filmed and never broadcast, or screened once.
If it does exist, then apart from the audio, who knows where the video could be....

With all the Foxx/Foxxvox video that's come to light, I would have thought if this existed and was broadcast, it would have shown up by now to be honest. Maybe the Mighty Rob, Oracle of All Things Foxx will be able to answer (next time he pops in)... wink

Oooh fascinatin!!

What else does your memory tell you of this, newvox?

News to me as well when I read it, but there are things on the internet that aren't always accurate, apparently.

I'd love to know more...

That site was one of the early Foxx sites and prob hasn't been updated in about 8 years. John Marques Carramao...whatever happened to him I wonder... bemused

I did hear of 'blurred girl' being as a live track years ago, as i dont have it i can only go by memory.
Rob will probably know for sure if it exists, and as almost always the rarest items come into existance from people in other 'areas'.

The only appearance Ultravox made (at least with John) was when they sang Slow Motion and Hiroshima Mon Amour. You can at least see the latter on Youtube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCt-ZOrd7vY

If you look in the background as it palys you will notice the OGWT logo.

I have been going to 'the garden' site every few months for the past three years and ive never noticed any updates.
There are several people including myself who have been looking for (video) orig or copys of this performance, if in existance.
This is one of many items on a list of very rare video footage, but i will continue to wait for this one too.
Im pleased that its been brought to the forums notice though, as it helps with a more general interest search. And sometimes even very rare items are found this way.

I wasn't really looking for the video itself.
Just some indication/evidence that it the performance occurred.
Same with all bootlegs etc - more interestin to me is the dates and setlists than a copy of the thing.

Doesn't OGWT have an archive website somewhere?

Theres no official list in mind, or even one artist. Headache example - we have been looking four years now for film of numans warriors tour in '83 (apart from the four minutes cine film)
Thats a good example in this case as we know it may have never existed either.

It would be nice if someone who knows John could just ask or email him, soon. Hint! Hint!

I myself am looking for the Algerian Bald Eagle Hamster...if anyone ever comes across one...

John Marques Carramao. Now that is a name that makes me laugh. His site was ok in a sort of over-written sense. I just had a look. His 'The Carramao Stratospheres" website is offline. Bummer. I assume he had to get a real job like the rest of us.

I dont want to use the word business, but i dont exactly sit around searching for things on my own all day. There are groups of people that do more than web searches, and at this moment (or decade) we dont have the OGWT hard copys or even just Birdsong friendly data. <img border="0" alt="[Shake head]" title="" src="graemlins/shakehead.gif" />

If your out there John, please send your first post in.... PLEASE!! laugh

So these groups of people are looking for things over a period of years...but its impossible to write down on here even a few of the things they're looking for...as presumably you don't know. As if you DID know the things they're looking for you'd be able to write them down for Martin (assuming you wanted to).

Got it. Totally understand. Clear. As. A. Bell.

There's a line in 'Good Morning Vietnam', explaining what the NCO is in need of. If Anyone remembers it, you'll get my drift.
Flip, when you said you'd eat your house, did you mean it cos have you moved (weren't your posts from MK?)
Cheers

Flip:I dont mean to get serious (either), but it is business and its not for me to talk of Phil.
The people and list im talking of was 35% my work, so yes i do know whats on it!!
If anything turns up i will and DO pass things on to forum members, although it may not look that way. Again its not for me to talk of, thats the point of PMs. I think its best to have the facts and sometimes even the items before posting about them.

May i just say before the questions start....
I have nothing to do with US government excited

Point one: I dont talk about PMs as its other peoples business and if they think the same way as me then they would not of told you the lies your suggesting. I have the PMs as proof that everythings ok.

Point two: Im not the one making a big thing out of nothing every five minutes. As this is more pointless than any music. Just wait and see what happens about the OGWT stuff like the rest of us. :rolleyes:

Point 1 - I don't tell lies. And I don't see why the people who contacted me would either. But you carry on suggesting you know things others don't if it makes you feel better.

Point 2 - the only big thing I'm making anything out of is you not backing up things you claim knowledge of. The less detail you give out the more you can claim "I knew this was on the cards" later. :rolleyes:

Morning Flip :rolleyes:

Point one: I never said you were lying, i said you were spreading the lies of people that contact me through PMs etc.
See once again you do not understand anything.

Point two: I did give one item on that list i.e. the numan one, your turn. So in public give one name of a person that i have been in contact with who is lying about me. Then i will talk to the rumour maker, instead of wasting time with the rumour spreader :rolleyes:

Well you've sent me a PM but as you've said pretty much the same thing in public here I'll respond to this.

Why would I want to name anybody when they came to me (as a Moderator) in confidence? Why would they come to me and tell lies about you? confused

Believe me or not, I don't care; members of the forum can (and do) make their own minds up about you from your posts, as I have. Carry on with the petty insults though if you want, if it makes you feel better. smile

We're all beginning to misunderstand each other, and who might have said what to whom isn't relevant in open discussion.

Thanks Mr Squiddy for the reference to the OGWT appearances.
As a great man once said, further details will be posted as soon as I find anything out...
