Restricted to 1000 copies, this limited edition DVD documents a 5 song performance by John Foxx at RTVE’s Madrid TV studio in late 1983 during The Golden Section Tour. Once a good quality tape of the show was located, these tracks were originally intended to be for the recent Metadelic CD. However, in the end that proved to be impossible and John was able to license it directly through Metamatic Records. Clocking in at around 26 minutes, the performance features 5 brilliant versions of songs from The Garden and The Golden Section – definitely the best we’ve ever come across. Karborn authored the DVD. The audio has been remastered by Dallas Simpson @ Dallas Masters. Tracklisting:
Twlight’s Last Gleaming
The Hidden Man
Systems Of Romance
Available from The Official John Foxx Store

In Brief The Belbury Circle is Jim Jupp of Belbury Poly and Jon Brooks of the Advisory Circle, and for this debut collaborative EP on Ghost Box they arejoined by stalwart of British Electronica, John Foxx. The EP Released on 6th September on 10” vinyl, CD and download, the EP features four songs, an instrumental and a remix of the title track Empty Avenues by Pye Corner Audio. Music The music of The Belbury Circle occupies the overlapping territories of Belbury Poly and The Advisory Circle. Foxx’s songs are perfectly framed by haunting pastoral electronics, with perhaps a stronger pop sensibility than previous Ghost Box releases. Brooks and Jupp readily site Foxx as a key influence on their work and as a result his distinctive voice occupies their soundworld effortlessly. Like all Ghost Box records, it comes in Julian House’s elegant and luxurious packaging, with variant covers for the CD and 10” vinyl versions. The 10” also comes with free download codes. TRACK-LISTING… 01. Empty Avenues 02. Almost There 03. The Right Path 04. Suit 05. The Time Of Your Life 06. Empty Avenues, Dark Corners (Pye Corner Audio Mix)

John Foxx and Jori Hulkkonen have collaborated on a new EP, featuring 4 brand new songs, 2 remixes by film-director David Lynch and a radio edit of the exquisite lead track ‘Evangeline’. The other songs – ‘Strictly’, ‘Something Is Coming Down The Avenues’ and ‘Can’t See You Anymore’ – are as dream-like and strange as anything in either artist’s catalogue. For Foxx, the closest reference would be his 1981 album, The Garden but the surrealist feel of the new material is more displaced and dislocated. There’s a strong sense of melancholy, loss, destruction and also romance. Perfect material for David Lynch to reinterpret and re-imagine, quietly stretching out ‘Evangeline’ with the sound of surf, a drum machine heartbeat and the twang of a 50s guitar. It’s a beautiful, evocative remix and a shimmering instrumental version.
According to Hulkkonen the idea was first discussed back in 2010 ‘when John Foxx And The Maths played a live show at the Roundhouse in London with me supporting as a DJ – and I also ended up on stage to play on John’s song, ‘Underpass’.’
Foxx and Hulkkonen had worked together before on two singles, ‘Dislocated’ in 2005 and ‘Never Been Here Before’ two years later, but the pair were keen to try something new. ‘What I wanted to do was try a somewhat deeper way of collaborating,’ says Hulkkonen. ‘Creating an EP where the tracks are linked thematically, emotionally and sonically. Thankfully John agreed. Now, some three years later I’m happy the record is finally done and it indeed carries the elements of mystery and surprise it was intended to have. And the fact that David Lynch is on remix duties further adds to the conundrum that is European Splendour.’
Foxx, who wrote all the lyrics, describes the EP as a ‘Lynchian love story set against the background of a convulsed Europe – where New York is the capital of France, Rome has moved to Manhattan and declared itself a republic, and New Neon Blackpool has outstripped Las Vegas and London as the playground of Sino-Russian oligarchs.’ Adding to the sense of mystery, Foxx goes on to say: ‘it’s based in a Eurozone where dark forces insinuate the cafes, alleyways and penthouses’
Either way, European Splendour is like an internal movie recorded across Europe and featuring a new dream combination of Foxx, Hulkkonen and David Lynch. Theartwork is by Bowie collaborator Jonathan Barnbrook, with the cover featuring a new sculpture by Foxx. Film icon remixes. Musician sculpts. Hulkonnen’s career s as diverse as anyone. This is the world of European Splendour.
John Foxx’s Metadelic album brings together a collection of lush, romantic psychedelic material and was released by Demon Records on 3rd June. This 3 disc set includes a bonus DVD with promo videos and a rare Top Of The Pops appearance by Foxx.
