Music by John Foxx & Steve D’Agostino.

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.

John Foxx And The Maths remix of OMD’s ‘Dresden’ single:
Foxx has been experimenting with electronics since the 1970s when he worked with the likes of Brian Eno and legendary Krautrock producer Conny Plank in the original line-up of Ultravox, described by Gary Numan as ‘the blueprint for my first two or three albums.’ Jim Kerr remembers early Ultravox gigs as a vital inspiration for Simple Minds, while ’90s innovators Leftfield were influenced by the band’s pioneering mix of punk and electronics. They discussed using Foxx’s ‘cinematic sci-fi vocals’ as one of their collaborations and although this didn’t happen ex-member Paul Daley is currently working on new material with Foxx.
Launching his solo career with the icily minimalist Metamatic (fans include Aphex Twin and Afrika Bambaataa), Foxx has released 26 studio albums to date. In 2011 he returned to his analogue synthesizer roots with the critically acclaimed Interplay – the first album with Benge from The Maths. Their debut was swiftly followed by the more personal-edged The Shape Of Things in 2012 and they’re set to release their latest album Evidence on 25 February 2013. Arguably their darkest so far, the record features collaborations with contemporary artists Matthew Dear, The Soft Moon, Xeno & Oaklander, Tara Busch and Gazelle Twin.
In addition to John Foxx and Benge, the line-up for the English Electric shows will feature Hannah Peel on keyboards and violin.
Expect a set list mixing recent songs ‘Evergreen’, ‘Catwalk’ and ‘Evidence’ with cold gems from Foxx’s solo career including ‘Burning Car’, ‘He’s A Liquid’ and ‘Underpass’.
