Well...once more then!

take a look at: www.John.Foxx.de.vu

YouŽll find a forum, a guestbook, infoŽs on John Foxx and the Ultravox! island years. ThereŽs also a gallery, a discography, news... and so on.

Have fun!

Btw: I got all the pictures from the internet as I donŽt have a digicam or a scanner or whatsoever, nor did I visit any concerts to show my own pics. The pictures have no copyright but if you find a picture which is yours: please let me know and within a reasonable time IŽll delete it or put your name under it. IŽll also be happy about some new stuff which youŽd like to see at that page.

Spectrum music have an excellent cd compilation of Foxx era Ultravox, at budget price. I guess many of you will already have this stuff, but thought i'd mention it anyway.

Cheers,

You've hit on the crux ! I love "Cross Fade". When i was a naive and uneducated 16 year old (when it came out) i used to wonder what the hell it was about. Decided it must be about filming? Amazing track; i also liked "Dislocation" - another experimental b-side.

"Dislocation" is on Systems Of Romance. wink Great song! Definitely one in a style that John Foxx would follow early in his solo career. It also doesn't make it surprising that songs like "He's A Liquid" and "Touch & Go" would have originated during Foxx' time in Ultravox. Although, in a way, I'm glad he took them and recorded them for himself, because I never really liked much how they sounded live with Ultravox in 1979... (Don't hurt me!!) shock

"Cross Fade" took a bit of getting used to, having only somewhat recently heard it. It's still not one of my favourite Ultravox tracks, but it's pretty good. smile

"cross fade" could be about mixin' one source of audio / video material into another one - like deejays nowadays do it , when they use a so-called "crossfader" @ their mixer !!! wink

anyway ... a very "advanced" songtitle back then !!! laugh

Hey all!....Whirly here!....
I know I'll be sent to the new "Music Pugatory", but can someone email me ane MP3 of the Tiger Lily song "Monkey Jive"?
It's the only Foxx/Ultravox song I don't have a digital copy of. That would be totally "Surf Cool....man!"
ha ha ha..................ha ha ha

Sorry - i first had "Dislocation" as b side of "Slow Motion" here in UK. But it is indeed on "S.O.R." ! It has what appears to be a first appearance of the so-called Metal Beat in the style of percussion. Must admit i was greatly taken with the whole weirdness of John Foxx and stuck with him over the years.

I worked backwards. Discovered John himself first, then his era in Ultravox(!). I haven't looked back on either since. lurve

Hehe. Even Foxx obsessives can get it wrong sometimes.... "S.O.R." it is! Anyhow; it's great to see he has so many fans on this website. The man's a genius.

It took a slight left turn about halfway down, but I have to compliment on your site (swiftly getting back on topic...).
