John Foxx: Metamatic

A definite cult classic, Metamatic was the debut solo album for the Ultravox co-founder and lead singer. A perfect realisation of Foxx’s influences – his art school beginnings, the new wave and krautrock music that influenced the early years of Ultravox, and the rapid development and refinement of synthesisers and electronic instrumentation.

Often capturing a cold, detached air that would be the undercurrent of the 80s, Metamatic is an album of urban disconnect and influential electronic minimalism.
