20th Century: The Noise CD Album
Release Date: 24/07/2015
Metamatic Records’ first major compilation of John Foxx material is the first part of a double release spanning thirty-five years as a solo artist. John Foxx – 20th Century: The Noise covers the years from his debut single ‘Underpass’ in January 1980 to the rest of the last century, up to his ‘comeback’ albums with Louis Gordon, Shifting City and Subterranean Omnidelic Exotour in 1997 and 1998. There’s also a rare Cathedral Oceans gem, ‘Splendour’ which has only ever been available on a rare album by various artists entitled Orphée and the album includes an unreleased instrumental track from the vaults, ‘Musique Electron’ – a melodic idea Foxx has had ‘for decades’. The Metamatic material is taken from the new 2014 master which is based on a new set of 1979 analogue tapes found in John’s archive.

Ghost Harmonic are solo violinist Diana Yukawa, electronic pioneer John Foxx and his collaborator in John Foxx And The Maths – Benge. They’ve been working at Benge’s MemeTune Studios in Shoreditch, London over the last couple of years, creating the Ghost Harmonic sound – a combination of the purity of Diana Yukawa’s violin with the complexity and textured noise of analogue machinery. As Benge puts it, ‘there is something very satisfying about combining Diana’s beautiful 17th Century violin with a subsonic tone-blast from a Moog Modular.’

John Foxx - London Overgrown
Release Date: 30/03/2015
”For over thirty years I’ve been writing about, filming, photographing and exploring a city. Assembling a travelogue of an invisible place that may be found across any street.
Even though we may live in the same physical space, we all carry our own vastly different maps of it – from personal routes, shortcuts to the connections with accumulated memories, associations and experiences. Our own maps of our own city.” John Foxx

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.
