John Foxx’s B-Movie (Ballardian Video Neuronica) was recorded and assembled for a cut-up movie by Foxx and Karborn inspired by the ideas and work of British writer JG Ballard. Screened as part of Brighton’s Cine-City festival in late 2012, the pair presented ‘a film and sound seance manifesting J G Ballard neurones. Mobilised by ultracolour and inframusic, anatomised hallucinogenetics and proximity psychopathagens.’
The album features two collaborations – ‘Geometry, Collision And Coincidence’ with Benge and ‘Disaster Series’ was recorded with another long-term associate, Steve D’Agostino. All the music is exclusive to this soundtrack except ‘The Other Side’ is an extract from the forthcoming Electricity & Ghosts album (due for release in 2015), which just happened to fit with the visuals. The soundtrack runs as a continuous piece of music in the first part of B-Movie including effects and links that relate to the film.
The second half of the album features all the individual tracks plus ‘Dashboard Melt’ which Foxx recorded for the project but in the end didn’t use. Jonathan Barnbrook’s stunning artwork for the album features images created by Karborn.

Music by John Foxx & Steve D’Agostino.
Images by Karborn. Design by Barnbrook.
Evidence of Time Travel is a unique investigation of the terrors and pleasures of temporal displacement. A sinister sonic architecture of drum-machine-music and analogue synthesizers.
Opens with ‘The Forbidden Experiment’, as surveillance TV glitches and the ghostly, ripped-up multi-temporal universe of Evidence of Time Travel infiltrates the labyrinth of dark electronica.
Span forty years in a moment . . . ultimate time transfusion . . . skin crackles, a rhapsody in flames… witness images of torn, ruthless smiles through the crashed distortion; try to recall the future memory of a figure lost on a distant shore.

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

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)
