GET BACK (ITALY)
"Former Ultravox vocalist and frontman who left the act after three incredible albums, John Foxx went on to a solo career releasing his first self-produced album -- the electronic
(1980) -- in which synthetic atmospheres lulled his metallic futuristic voice. Foxx's second album
(1981) reveals a true genius of the so-called New Wave, already set for the musical revolution of the early eighties. Unlike his solo debut,
is not a pure act of experimentation but tries to collect many influences such as The Velvet Underground, Roxy Music and various apparently incommensurable legacies, tied together by Foxx's majestic lyricism and voice."
NEW RELIGION (UK)
"In their bid to re-discover the obscure early '80s electronic cuts that today's dance music rely so heavily upon, New Religion bring you the 'Vanity Project'! Influential cuts from the pioneers of electronic dance music have been re-mastered and updated, bringing you a 12" series that we hope you will savour. First up is solo artist and one time member of Ultravox, John Foxx with the track 'Mr No.' 'Mr No's' surreal dark soundscape -- originally released in 1980, belies the year that it was made and is just one of many influential tracks from this camp. Previously only available as a limited edition 7" double pack, New Religion presses it on a loud 12" for the first time just for your enjoyment. Paris' man of the moment Joakim brings you the update on the flip. Joakim has been an outstanding producer on the leftfield electronic dance scene, remixing Max Berlin, Chateau Flight and Clashing Egos amongst many others to devastating effect, as well as a string of impressive solo ventures under his belt. Bringing a similar feel to this classic."
