John Foxx & The Maths (John Foxx/Benge/Hannah Peel/Serafina Steer) will be playing a one-off gig at Cargo in London on 5 September before their Bestival appearance the following day. These are the only UK appearances scheduled for the rest of this year. They’ll be performing material fromInterplay, The Shape Of Things and a new mini-album Evidence which is also due out in September – along with fresh analogue takes on old Foxx classics. Support is from Tara Busch who will be performing her new electronic sci-fi symphony, I Speak Machine. Also Stephen Mallinder (Ex-Cabaret Voltaire) and Phil Winter will be DJing as Wrangler.
The track ‘Evidence’ was born naturally out of the two artists’ mutual appreciation for one another. Speaking with Artrocker magazine last year, Luis Vasquez from The Soft Moon had this to say of John Foxx’s influence on his own music: ‘Foxx’s Metamatic album is what led me to discover the Arp Odyssey, the most crucial instrument in my collection, and the key synthesizer used in creating my unique sound. So, that album is very important to me and what I do.’ With regard to the collaboration, John Foxx said, ‘The Soft Moon are where minimalism maximises into a new universe of possibilities. It’s an absolute joy for us to work with them.’
‘Evidence’ will be released as a one-sided 7 inch single by Captured tracks on 26 June. It also features on the forthcoming Evidence mini-album by John Foxx & The Maths in early September.
