Originally posted by Adam: Regarding John Foxx's appearance on 'Synth Britannia', I was wondering if anyone else was wondering, a) Where he was interviewed (Does he own all those synths we saw?) and b) What was the track he was playing?
The studio where John
was interviewed for Synth Britannia
belongs to Benge
- Gary Numan
was also recently interviewed there, about the influence that John Foxx
had on him, for the recent DNA Exhibition
Last year Benge
released an album (which has been discussed over on the Metamatic Forum
) entitled Twenty Systems
. The album has been described by Brian Eno
as A brilliant contribution to the archaeology of electronic music
is (among other things) currently in the midst of writing material with John Foxx
As for the name of the track... it was made up on the spot as a way of demonstrating the particular keyboard that was being played at the time.
