John Foxx – London Overgrown – One Week Until Release

LONDON OVERGROWN – OUT NEXT WEEK
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.

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.’

‘It was fairly open,’ says John Foxx, ‘but I guess the underlying intention was we all wanted to see what might happen when a classically trained musician engaged with some of the possibilities a modern recording studio can offer – eg multi-tracking, vast notional spaces, long echoes, looping, retuning, layering, synthesisers, sound effects, vintage and cheap equipment etc. Also we wanted to improvise, since that seldom happens in the classical world. Bach wouldn’t take any student who couldn’t improvise over a given theme but things seem to have gone in reverse since then. Diana was a welcome revelation after all that. She picked up themes immediately and took them off in all directions. Very exhilarating.”

It gave us the opportunity to create something really special and generate income at the same time. Being recognised by our peers makes us very proud. But a special thanks has to go to our wonderful trustee Andy McCluskey for making it all possible in the first place.’

OMD | Dresden Prize


OMD’s appearance at the Dresden prize caused quite a stir.  Not only did the performance of 4 songs rock the normally sedate Semperoper, but the prize recipient the Duke of Kent was moved to stand and clap along, whilst the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and the Bishop of Coventry Chirstopher Cocksworth were both seen to be busting a few moves.

Andy’s speech at the event can be read here.

The Numan RSS feed went screwy and started posting crap.

Deleted it, AND the dodgy posts. Sorted.

Embarassing!





OMD | Statement on Junk Culture reissue


Due to production errors, all formats of the delxue Junk Culture reissue have the wrong tracklist (Wrappup is absent, and All Wrapped Up is erroneously in its place on Disc 2).

Universal have agreed to supply a corrected copy of Disc 2 to anyone who contacts them at mk.customerservices@umusic.com with proof of purchase. 

We apologise for the error and hope that the rest of the reissue is proving enjoyable, particularly the long-awaited unreleased tracks.
