The site's back online and it's great to be here! And it's great to know a new John Foxx album will be with us so soon!!

I've been a fan of John's music for 5 years now. A friend (who used to know John pre-Ultravox!) recommended his music to me, by coincidence not long before Modern Art came out (followed by the reissues).

I so clearly remember in those early days looking at jpegs of John's unavailable albums and unreleased albums (Metatronic etc) on the internet, and looking at Metamatic.com for the first time.

I remember being fascinated by his album covers and so curious and excited to find out what music was behind those covers.

Five years later I've got all the albums and have the pleasure of knowing so many cool fellow FoxxFans on this forum.

If I had some wine I'd raise a toast!
Here's to John, a new album, a tour and fandom!!
Hurrah!
excited

I challenge everyone to have a pint for every year they've been a Foxx fan. nutjob

Being the sad individual that I am, I'd be the soberest (most sober?) here. laugh :p

I had an original version of Underpass until recently.
It's really thick, heavy vinyl and I can distinctly remember buying it. From a shop when it came out.
So I guess that makes me a Foxx fan of some 26 years standing...

Or lying down, probably! I'm not a great drinker
Hic! wink

Nice thread - here's to the new album!

Hi,

In honesty i can't beat 27 years, but i remember buying a cassette of metamatic in '80, and almost everything since!

The 'old stuff' is real classic foxx, but im sure the new album will be great. smile
