Believe it or not, I've been visiting this site for about 4 years. Been an Ultravox fan (hate the word "fan", makes me sound like a Brossette!) since I heared Sleepwalk in 1980 (I was 14 then!!).
Trying desparately to get my daughter, Rhiannon, to enjoy Ultravox but she's 4 years old and prefers the Tweenies, though I haven't given up yet!
If Monument etc. can get the Voxgate up and running for next March I'd definitely be up for it. Haven't posted too much as I've always felt a bit intimidated - I love listening to the music, RIE especially (brings back some great memories), but having very limited musical ability (Grade 2 rockschool Bass - but trying), can't get too involved in some of the more in-depth conversations.
Anyway, I look forward to contributing a bit more in future.

Hey Taff, welcome aboard. No need to feel intimidated - we're all the same in here. No cliques, no gangs - loads of different people with at least 1 thing (ultravox) in common. Post as often or as little as you like, matey. smile

Welcome, Taff, and have fun. Don't let lack of musical ability put you off. I can barely operate a CD player, let alone a musical instument, and that's not proven to be an impediment so far.

Hi Taff,

Welcome! I too was 14 when Sleepwalk came out and like you have never looked back. As regards to your daughter, now is the best time cos i know from my teenagers that the time between age 4 and 11 when they'll just follow your musical taste. Unfortunately all you hear in my house is McFly and Kelly Clarkson.

My now 7 yr old daughter could recite the chorus's to both Hymn and DWTIME word perfectly at the age of 4.

Vin (H/S)

All i can tell you is she's a blonde teenager but her music isn't that bad, certainly not as bad as Ms Spiers. (fearing a backlash from Britney fans).

Risking all credibility; i would posit that Girls Aloud are about the best of this ilk ! And as they all over 20 now, no moral probs. LOL
