John Foxx & The Maths - Interplay

Cold synth masterpiece from the electro-pop pioneer

(Metamatic Records)

Now a real-life silver Foxx, the pushing-60 electro-pop/clash pioneer and former vocalist with Ultravox before Midge Ure made them rubbish might just have found his time.

This retro-future compendium of detached, dystopian analogue-synth ditties enabled with collaborator Ben ‘Benge’ Edwards was originally released in March this year, and while the two extra tracks on this special tour edition don’t really constitute a new album, neither do they take away from the ice-cool, machine-age sexiness of an appositely warm revisitation to a sound designed for serious young men to suck their cheekbones in to while standing on their own in neon-lit nightclubs watching women dance.
