Nation 12's long-lost album, Electrofear is going to be released by Tape Modern Records on the 14th of November.

The album includes John Foxx's collaboration with Tim Simenon, Remember, plus Nation 12's second single, Electrofear. However, most of the material has never been heard before. In total there are seventy-seven minutes of music including vocal-led John Foxx songs such as Shadow Dancing, Your Kisses Burn and She Was, as well as very different versions of Cities of Light and Invisible Women. The album was rescued from obscurity by a John Foxx fan and then restored and mastered at Serendipity. The full track-listing is as follows...

01. Nation 12
02. She Was
03. Shadow Dancing
04. Florian
05. Electrofear
06. Listen to the Drummer
07. Leaving
08. Into the Wonderful
09. Cities of Light 1
10. Your Kisses Burn
11. Remember
12. Concrete / Bulletproof / Invisible
13. Invisible Women
Additional Tracks
14. Electrofear (Alternative Mix)
15. Invisible Women (Electronic Mix)
16. Remember (Sub Dub Mix)

I'll post further details as soon as I find out more myself... laugh

Hi Rob

It's always great to read your announcements. We have here John's lost album which paved way to Shifting City.

So from John's mysterious period we now have:

1985 Album - In Mysterious Ways - John Foxx

1986 Album - Pressure Points - Anne Clark - first 5 tracks of the album produced by John Foxx

1987 Tracks - Stars Return & The Time Machine - Astrea Redux - produced by John Foxx (NB the last tracks recorded at The Garden Studios. Studio sold thereafter. These tracks have been subsequently released in 1999 on the So Very Distant album and in 2001 on the Language album respectively)

1990 Album - Electrofear - Nation 12 aka John Foxx & Tim Simenon

1995 Album - Shifting City - John Foxx & Louis Gordon

1995 Album - Cathedral Oceans 1 - John Foxx


Can anybody add anything else to this mini-discography?

It'll be fantastic to find out more! excited

Cheers!

Chris C wink

FANTASTIC!!
Never been the biggest fan of Nation 12's material but felt that Concrete/Bulletproof/Invisible (which I love) was not a million miles away from that style. It will be very interesting to hear the original concept for this track and the others that we are familiar with.

Your Kisses Burn will be interesting too. Marc Almond wrote a duet for Nico on The Stars We Are album of the same name...

Look ing forward to the sleeve notes too
Is it too much to expect a commentary about this period of John's career?

Thanks for the update Rob!!
smile

And being REALLY pedantic…
How much of Nation 12 was Tim Simenon involved with?
I know he collaborated on the first single "Remember", but after that?

Don't want to dampen anyone's enthusiasm but of all John's many projects over the past 25 years, in my opinion this was perhaps the least interesting.

Whilst I only heard Remember, Listen To The Drummer (the b-side) and Electrofear, it really did sound like a very half-hearted project.
I'm intrigued however by Robin's quote that some of the tracks are “vocal-led”. Does this mean John actually sings, or is it spoken word (Remember was and rarely have I heard John sound more bored)?

Yet for all that, I just know that I'm going to go out and buy a copy – just as I have with anything John has released commercially!

never having heard ANY nation 12 stuff
i'm totally looking forward to this release...
which actually brings up a very basic question:
who ARE tim simenon and louis gordon...?
i'm only aware of them as individuals
who both brought john "out of retirement"
what did they do before/after/otherwise...?
i find it interesting that john's vocal output
since the 80s, has been "collaborative"
that the only things with just HIS name on them
have been instrumental (cathedral oceans)...
not that i'm complaining! :-)
i love BOTH styles
it just seems that it takes someone ELSE
to get him to want to sing...
that if he's left alone to do whatever he likes
he makes instrumental music...
as far as i'm concerned, he can do what he wants
i like it ALL... :-)

I had the game "Gods" on the Atari ST - that had a sample of Into The Wonderful on the intro. John's bit seemed to be singing "aaaaaaah ah ahhhh ahhhh...etc" over a dance track. Only a short-ish looped sample though, no idea what the rest of the track is like or whether he sang anything else.

We have some (fairly ropey, it has to be said) MP3s of the game music, I was thinking of putting it on the site but Rob says it might turn up on the Nation 12 album - so fingers crossed for that. smile

I have a reasonable MP3 of 'into the wonderful' from the Gods game - its ripped from a PC conversion of the Amiga version.

It's not bad - very much like something from 'Shifting City'. It would be interesting to hear the studio version.

I have been coming back to the site over the past few days and can't believe that there aren't more postings on this topic!!!! Thanks to Pete & Andreas, I have copies of the singles, as well as 'listen to the drummer' and they are amazing - ol' chisel cheeks definately taught the acid housers a thing or two! But to hear that there are early versions of CBI, Invisible women, and another Cities of Light!!!! I feel this album is a more important relase than CO3!
I have looked on t'internet and asked at HMV, no info on release. HMV believe it will be internet only as Tape Modern are a small label, who release small artists -SMALL ARTISTS!! I almost grabbed the shop assistant by the lapels and explained to him that this could be one of the most important releases of the decade!! Nation 12's album will be the missing link between early 90's electro and influences will echo throughout modern day music - The Killers, Kaiser Chiefs, Goldfrapp to name but a few.
(Sorry, I think i've enthused enough - I am well excited!!)
Christmas comes a month early!
Also, could someone clear up a point - Is 'Listen to the drummer' a sample as I've heard the 'Hear the drummer get wicked' line before, or did I just hear it as an original? And, surely now John MUST release a single from this to get radio airtime!
Cheers

Hi Craig
It's a long time since I've heard from you. Hope you are well. I can fully understand your excitement because I'm excited as well. How much other stuff is hidden away?
I enjoyed reading your comments. I haven't tryed to search for this album yet. If anyone finds it for sale please post it here. Yes I agree with you Craig, John is no SMALL artist. banghead

I also heard "Hear the drummer get wicked" used before on something else. Anyone any info on this?
Regards
Peter

Scarcely a week would go by when I wouldn't receive an E-Mail asking something about Nation 12. And now that this album is about to be released... silence.

Hi Peter and Andreas, has been quite a long time since our last communiques. Pete, I did do a cassette of some of the '85 Radio session revisited from a few months ago but haven't had time to sift through it. Maybe I'll just send you the tape, what do you think? Been very busy with work - packaging and graphics wait for no man. Sorry, going off topic...I agree, we're all in shock. To describe the excitement for this is perhaps too difficult to describe in words. 'Listen to the drummer' was on the playlist at my wedding - although got substituted for 'Endlessly', Exotour version at the last minute.
Roll on Nov 14th (if we can get copies on that day - might have to camp out at Tape Modern HQ!)
Cheers

Rob
shocked

....too shocked to react. This is one of John's major unreleased works. Never imagined this one would ever be released.

1)Rob is this tracklisting the final one? Cerise mentioned that it may include a few surprises. Perhaps as a limited edition

2)Are all the tracks of both 12"s represented here?

There must be hundreds of tracks that John has recorded awaiting final production. :rolleyes: My other wishes are:

1) The Quiet Man Album
2) Urban Motets
3) The Bed Soundtrack
4) The Linking Pieces for the Identification of a Woman and other similar scores for other films during that period,if any
5) The follow up electronic album to Metamatic incl. 20th Century, Burning Car, My Face, Miles away and 6 others. This was shelved for The Garden
6) 1979 demos of Metamatic tracks and other unreleased tracks + the Young Love and A New kind of Man single versions...and of course Like A Miracle!
7)The In The Glow Project
8)In Mysterious Ways outtakes
9)The music he created for Gods and other computer games
10) The Golden Section Tour final concert
11) Cathedral Oceans Live (St Chad's Shrewsbury)including Sanctus Sanctus and Tantum Ergo
12) His work with Karl Bartos
13)Crash and Burn Tour including My Sex 2003 version. La Scala probably got the best reviews!

Sidetracking now, can anybody else add to this list?

Happy memory jogging !!

Chris C laugh

Hopefully the nation 12 CD will sell well and this may prompt John to reconsider releasing some of the projects Chris as just mentioned.
wink wink
The Bed soundtrack has been doing the circuit as a boot. CO live (and I'm only guessing) was originally recorded by a fan attending the concert with a cassette recorder and I'm very grateful he did record it for us die hard fans. laugh laugh laugh

Yes, I agree with everyone else, was stunned into silence by the news. Didn't think this stuff would ever see the light of day - didn't know some of those tracks even existed!

So, in short: I can't wait! excited

Oh, and can anyone shed any more light on the shelved electronic follow-up to Metamatic that Chris C mentioned? Now's that's something I would dearly love to hear.

Sorry to disappoint everyone, but the follow-up to Metamatic WAS The Garden. There wasn't a shelved electronic album...

Thought so. Thanks Rob!
That list seems to me to include a lot of stuff that was just ramblings and 'working material' all of which either lead up to an existing piece of music, or was shelved in favour of something else John was happier with.
All artists have sketch books and thoughts - that's part of the organic nature of their work. Doesn't mean it should be released into the public domain. While its 'interesting' from a fan's point of view to hear, artist's have to bear in mind their 'public image' and credibility which in John's case is flawless.

And as far as I'm aware, The Bed soundtrack never happened and anything that was 'recorded' is part of the "metamatic demos" bootleg that goes around from time to time, which we all have anyway?

What ARE the Mysterious Ways outtakes...? confused2

Did John ever actually work with Karl Bartos?

Sorry to rant guys, but hmmm I think we should spend more time appreciating what we HAVE from John rather than speculating as to what may never be.

Rob[/b]
Rob thanks for confirming that. wink

However, we all know that John was on a songwriting high during 1979 and 1980 and must have recorded a great deal of tracks, completed and uncompleted. I feel, as I always feel John's work very deeply, that there was enough material to assemble an electronic album in November 1980. The 5 jingles from From Brussels with Love were the last in this genre. He only needed to add 6 tracks to 20th Century, Burning Car, My Face and Miles Away. Fusion/Fission and Dancing like a Gun, later appearing in The Garden, were probably 2 of them.

It looks like what I'm looking for has already been in the pipeline since 2000 Metamatica. I'm happy to settle for that. laugh

Go for it John !.....Chris one step at a time! wink

I can't wait for the Nation 12 album, especially as I've never heard either of the singles. It's the missing link between John's Virgin albums and his 90's releases.

As soon as the album becomes available can someone PLEASE let us know where we can get it from.

Thanks,

Andy

For me it was hard to get into this stuff too, but after some listenings... I got into. Surely this is another kind of John's music but not bad for my opinion. The other single "Remember" comes nearer to the Shifting City stuff . Electrofear is pure Techno /House music. Very nice deep bass beats... But I agree with you; it is a question of the taste. I like it. wink

For those interested, I will be posting a CD Single version of Electrofear on eBay shortly. Slightly mercenary advertising it here by an new Ipod is calling. It has a high reserve on it, sorry.... but Photo Ipods don't come cheap.

The CD has three mixes so at least one won't be on the Nation 12 album. Can't tell which, as the album has one version just called "Alternative Version" which could mean anything.

I'm not sure (at this stage) that they want to be named - depends what's said in the accompanying artwork. Why is it so important?

I understand from some interview with John that there was a lot of red tape that prevented a release of an album at that time. Presumably this was cut somehow, or disintegrated with the years?? I presume this IS an official release, or at least semi-official ... not that it matters too much. wink Some of it will no doubt sound dated (I mean old skool) but what the heck.

Btw, "Hear the Drummer, Get Wicked" was a hit for Chad Jackson (UK, no. 3) in June 1990. laugh

...telling me the same old story!LMAO lmao

Only joking! I do like this track from TDPT.

The Nation 12 album should be appreciated and seen in the context of the music scene of them days. The Acid House scene which incidentally coincided with John's disappearance from the musical world in 1987. The planned Nation 12 album was about to come out the year Acid House was beginning to sizzle out. Therefore, there was not much enthusiasm from anyone!

Anyhow, this is an album that should be in any fan's collection. It'll be surely in mine as soon as Rob gives us the details.

If anyone is interested FullFill Records (I think it is Steve Malins company), has put 200 copies of the new Nation 12 - Electrofear CD on ebay.co.uk. Priced at £11.99 + £1.50 UK shipping he is promising that they will be shipped on the 5th November. He is also stating that this is a limited edition of 500 although that may just been the first 500 before it goes in to the shops in December.

Even if you don't buy a copy from ebay the auction is worth a visit as it looks like it contains the sleeve notes which are quite extensive.

Alas I am not yet in a position to buy this album, but sleeve notes or not, I now have some much needed an info about this period.
The whole Lee Bowery thing made such a difference to SO many people now and we get much more of an idea what Nation 12 were all about.

Roll on December and this getting in the shops.
There is no mention that it will be in a different format by then…
