John's long-awaited book, The Quiet Man, is due to be published later this year...



For forty years musician, composer and writer John Foxx has been writing stories about the Quiet Man, all of them providing an enigmatic parallel world which Foxx continues to explore in films, songs and photography.

Can't remember whether I've mentioned this before, but these things almost never appear on the news page of John's website. The last new release to be advertised there was the Metamatic 3CD in May 2018. Anyone just looking there would never know about new releases.
