John Foxx and The Maths

John Foxx and The Maths

John Foxx And The Maths will be performing material from their three albums – Interplay (2011), The Shape Of Things (2012) and forthcoming mini-album Evidence (due out in autumn 2012), as well as classic songs from across Foxx’s career.

 

John Foxx will be joined on stage by The Maths: Benge, Serafina Steer and Hannah Peel

 

Electronic pioneer John Foxx formed Ultravox in the 70s and has worked with a wide range of artists including Brian Eno, Krautrock producer Conny Plank, Ladytron, Paul Daley from Leftfield, Cocteau Twins guitarist Robin Guthrie and I, Robot movie director Alex Proyas.

 

The critically acclaimed The Shape Of Things is out now on Metamatic Records:

 

‘Perfect synth pop.’ 5/5 Artrocker (Album of The Month)

 

‘The Shape of Things is consistently absorbing, as good as any of Foxx’s early-80s benchmarks.’ 4/5 Mojo

 

‘Foxx has rediscovered his musical touch. It’s the man who triumphs over the machines.’ Q Magazine

 

‘He has never seemed so relevant, nor sounded so modern, as he does in 2012. The Shape Of Things is, by some margin, Foxx’s best album since Metamatic.’ BBC Online

 

‘The Shape Of Things is an absolute triumph.’ 4/5 FACT Magazine

 

‘More introspective but no less gripping than last year’s Interplay’. 8/10 Vice Magazine

 

‘His most startling, contemporary-sounding music in years.’ The Quietus

 

‘There’s an aroma of Bowie’s seminal Low here. Another great LP from John Foxx.’ 4/5 Record Collector
