Rehearsals for October UK Tour

John Foxx And The Maths : UK Tour…

John Foxx And The Maths will be touring the UK during October. They will be performing material from their new album Interplay as well as classic songs from early Ultravox and John’s solo career.

Interplay is a collaboration between Foxx and electronic composer and synthesizer collector, Benge (Ben Edwards). The latter is best known for his 2008 album Twenty Systems, which was described by Brian Eno as a ‘Brilliant contribution to the archaeology of electronic music.’ Moody and atmospheric, but also full of songs that are actually more ‘pop’ than avant garde, Interplay pulls various strands of electronic music together – from early 80′s electro to 70′s Krautrock. One track, ‘Watching A Building On Fire’ features Mira Aroyo from Ladytron, who also came up with the original synth riff.

John will be joined on-stage on the Interplay Tour by…

Benge – Keyboards, Percussion
Serafina Steer – Keyboards, Bass
Hannah Peel – Keyboards, Violin

Tara Busch will be supporting at all of these shows, except for London (on the 27th) and Holmfirth (on the 28th), where the support will be Xeno & Oaklander. Also, Gazellle Twin is a guest on the 25th (XOYO London) and The Neat on the 27th (XOYO London).

John Foxx And The Maths will also be playing at The Unsound Festival in Poland on Saturday the 15th of October.

The Festival has a theme this year which is Future Shock, as in the 1970 book by Alvin Toffler. That book is a cautionary vision of the future (from a very 1970 perspective) warning against ‘too much change in too short a period of time’. In 1972 a fantastic documentary was made based on the book, featuring a doomy Orson Welles and music by Gil Melle. Meanwhile other artists performing at the Unsound Festival include electronic pioneers Morton Subotnik and Chris & Cosey.
