John Foxx - 20th Century the Noise


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 precious 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.
