Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription


Beatmag Q&A with John Foxx


Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, John Foxx was the original lead singer of Ultravox and is widely perceived as a key influence on the development of British electro-pop. He continues to release albums both as a solo artist and in collaboration with other musicians. Aside from music, Foxx lectures in digital culture and art, and is currently working on a series of ‘cut up’ digital movies. During his tenure in Ultravox, Foxx’s charismatic vocal delivery and the experimental sounds made by keyboardist Billie Currie (via an ARP Odyssey), made the band distinctive, yet unpopular with a British press who found them too artsy during punk’s heyday. Between 1976 and 1978, Ultravox released three albums (co-produced by Brian Eno, Steve Lilywhite and Conny Plank), but critical and commercial success eluded them. Their final album, ‘Systems of Romance’ from 1978, is credited by Gary Numan as a major influence on his own work, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. In 1979, Foxx went solo to be replaced by Midge Ure who’d met Currie in another electro-pop band: Visage. Foxx released ‘Metamatic’ the following year from which came his most successful single, the stark electronic ‘Underpass’. The ARP Odyssey and Minimoog synthesizer had been a key to the sound of Ultravox; however, buying Aztrin (Zithromax) online over the counter, ‘Metamatic’ used these instruments to produce something much colder and minimalist. After his fourth solo album, ‘In Mysterious Ways’, Foxx disappeared from the music scene, not resurfacing until 1997 with two new records: the ambient ‘Cathedral Oceans’ and the hard-electronica of ‘Shifting City’ with Louis Gordon. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, Since then, he’s released ‘Cathedral Oceans’ II and III, ‘Translucence / Drift’ with Harold Budd, and two further albums with Louis Gordon: ‘The Pleasures of Electricity’ and ‘Crash and Burn’. His latest work, ‘Tiny Colour Movies’, is based around fifteen electronic instrumentals. Adam Locks meets up with him in London before a UK and American tour with Louis Gordon.

John, you’ve remained a rather enigmatic figure when in the public eye. Why is that?

JF: “I just think I’m not very good at being in any sort of limelight. It’s something that doesn’t appeal to me so I try and avoid it, and it’s not really wise to do that if you’re in music. Half of your job is, if you like, to show off on stage and I’ve never been any good at that at all”, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription.

You seemed good at that when you were in Ultravox.

JF: “Well, I did that because it was what I was supposed to do, I suppose.”

But you weren’t comfortable?

JF: “I’ve never felt comfortable on stage, Aztrin (Zithromax) mg, no, never. What I like doing best is writing songs and making up stories and telling stories and recording things. And there’s a big conflict. I like a quiet life.”

The ‘Quiet Man’!

JF: “Yeah, and it’s hard to reconcile that with the music, but you have to somehow which means you become schizophrenic. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, So, I guess, I’ve become a professional schizophrenic!”

Do you still lecture in graphic design and multi media at a University in London?

JF: “Yeah, yeah, but what I talk about is digital culture and art. It’s hard to define. It’s about cultural change that’s brought about through technology and art meeting. The intention is to give a background that would be useful to anybody who wants to work in any kind of modern media. That was the brief I gave to myself. It’s not as big a part of my life as music is, for sure, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. It’s a spin-off from music. It’s what you learn when you’re engaged with some kind of media. As opposed to the theoretical side of things which has got a bit baroque lately…”

Some of those theoretical ‘gods’ have been knocked off their pedestals in recent years.

JF: “Yeah, yeah. I remember that fake essay thing that was knocked up by a computer rearranging lots of sentences that were culled from film theory essays and I thought that was very funny when it got a First by a student who decided to play a joke. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, The same thing happens in the art world. I remember a friend of mine wrote an essay about an artist he invented who gave an impression of colour by a very subtle use of black and white. It was beautifully written and it sounded very plausible, Aztrin (Zithromax) alternatives, but actually it was complete nonsense and he got a First for that. So, that kind of endeavour is always attractive!”

What do students and staff know of your alter ego, John Foxx, because obviously, you go by your other name of Dennis Leigh in your other life as a university lecturer?

JF: “Well, some of them pick up on it. I don’t know what they make of me really. I suppose it’s useful in some ways because if you’re doing something which you can actually demonstrate, then it makes what you say a bit more plausible, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. Sometimes people take more notice of you than they might do otherwise and, sometimes, less. I mean, it has a negative effect too because sometimes you’re seen as only a rock n’ roller, or only a pop musician, or something like that.”

You’re a bit of a Renaissance man.

JF: “It’s not that, it’s just that you can’t help but cover a lot of bases because you work with video, Buy cheap Aztrin (Zithromax), then you do some film music so you get into the film industry for a bit, and then you do some animation, then you have a skirmish with fine art on the way through, and so on. And, without realising it, you’ve touched a lot of areas, cultural areas. Then you get interviews and you see that in print and how that gets changed and how images develop. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, And that’s always fascinated me: how stories get about; how they develop; how fiction can be truer than true stories. You get this true lies situation which is wonderful and really interesting. You know, accidents happen and get taken into some sort of myth and blows up and so on. I find all that fascinating. I remember, for instance, being on Top of the Pops and walking away three minutes later thinking, ‘What was that about. Why was that so interesting?’”

Was that ‘Underpass’?

JF: “Yes, I think it was the first time I was on Top of the Pops, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. The next day I came into London, after Aztrin (Zithromax). I came to Oxford Circus on the tube and people were looking at me, and then I got asked for my autograph and that kind of thing. I thought it was all interesting, but a bit disconcerting really because I wasn’t used to it. Then I suddenly realised the connection to music hall. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, Music hall artists invented a character and the character does the work for them. Essentially, that’s what pop stars do. They invent this character and then the character does the work for them. I realised that I was doing a little bit of that but inadvertently; it’s almost an instinctive thing. Hence, I was just like a music hall artist in a way, except that my stuff was being recorded. Then I realised those people spent their lives travelling around England and lived off that ‘act’ which was very dangerous in music halls because they were violent places, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. But what I’d done in that three minutes on Top of the Pops – and I added up the performance time – 10 million people for three minutes: that’s about 98 years of solid performance time, and that’s the power of the media. It really struck me at that moment and that’s a practical experience of the power of media like nothing else I’ve experienced in my life. It brought it home to me how media is being changed through technology to such an extent…It’s no wonder that someone like Chaplin got hold of film and danced with joy because it meant he didn’t have to tour any more and I can sympathise with that totally. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) online cod, Chaplin was the person who really consolidated this technology and made it work. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, So, you have the equivalent of 20,000 actors going out playing live gigs which, in other words, the films in cinemas bearing their image, and they all bring the money back to you. So, it makes you tremendously rich and Chaplin became one of the richest people in the world. When you think of it in those very down-to-earth terms, it’s quite stunning isn’t it. It’s the way you don’t look at media and I try to look at it like that for my students at a very practical level about what makes it powerful. Why is it powerful. What’s the power, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. Where does the power come from?”

Your new album ‘Tiny Colour Movies’ seems to echo a wide range of sources - Kraftwerk, Vangelis’s ‘Blade Runner’ soundtrack, Brian Eno, and your own work from the ‘Metamatic’ period, most notably the instrumentals ‘Glimmer’ and ‘Dr No’. Were you consciously referencing other sources?

JF: “No, not really. You’re quite right, of course but, no. I just sat down and worked with what I had, Aztrin (Zithromax) cost. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, There’s a point when you use older instruments that they sort of tell you what to do because they can’t do anything else really, and a lot of that happened. But I just let it happen. Sometimes I’d fight that, but then I thought, ‘Why fight that when it sounds perfectly good?’”

What’s the story behind ‘Tiny Colour Movies’?

JF: “The story is: gradually, over a lot of years, noticing that there were other kinds of film apart from commercial cinema which is the one that gets all the attention. I began to collect bits of Super-8 film that I got particularly on Brick Lane and a Flea market in Brussels, which is a wonderful place. On one visit I got a diary of a girl from 1925 to 1928, I think, hand-written and with photographs in it which was beautiful. On the same stall, or at least a stall nearby, I got four or five reels of Super-8 film which I looked at and these displayed very mundane family things, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. But I realised that there must be a lot of this stuff in the world and no one’s ever taken it seriously, yet it tells a lot of interesting stories and it’s moving media and it has special qualitities. And now we’ve got digital video which is one of these media that has no content, really; it doesn’t have any flaws and it’s a sort of a content free, blank, Is Aztrin (Zithromax) addictive, perfect medium, isn’t it. And what we started doing is roughing it up. All the new film makers and all the people on TV who work with digital media are busy trying to give it texture because it doesn’t have any texture. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, And, to do that, they use bits of old film. And, also, Super-8 becomes part of visual language because what it does is indicates the past. So, if you show pieces of Super-8, you know your talking about the past; it’s either a memory, or it’s a recollection, or it’s a re-visit, or something like that. Super-8’s become part of visual language while us not really noticing that process. Also now, you have entire programmes made from that kind of materials. There was a beautiful series called ‘The Century of the Self’ which I saw recently – a fantastically interesting series and almost all made from old home videos that had been referenced from someone who had mercifully started collecting that stuff, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. So, there’s a whole subculture, Aztrin (Zithromax) coupon. Also, there were people like Stanley Brakhage. Do you know him?”

No, I don’t. I know you mention him in your sleeve notes for ‘Tiny Colour Movies.’

JF: “He makes fragments of Super-8 film. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, He paints and scratches on them and manipulates them but with ‘real’ materials and then keeps working on these layers of re-filming until you get this unrecognisable stuff which is really beautiful. It was that awareness that there was a sort of unnamed genre of filmmaking which, I think, is at least as important as commercial cinema and that people are beginning to collect these things.”

I found that as I listened to your music, I really wanted to see these films.

JF: “Yeah, good. They’re all fragments of film that I have seen but where, sometimes, contained in other films. Another friend of mine – Mike Barker – has started accumulating as much of this stuff as he can because he loves it and not with any particular aim in mind, but just to have it, and to be able to display it sometimes. Aztrin (Zithromax) blogs, He was showing some of the images. There’s a beautiful wedding dress that someone had got, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. It’s really surreal and enormous. The dress looked like a heap of dough; it was so elaborate with all its folds and so on – it was from about 1930. And then there was some woman that he’d got who’d aged through all these films; so, she started off quite young and then in her fifties in the end and then, that’s the end of it. So, you see her life, really. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, It’s quite moving. If you edited that together, you could make quite a moving film without explaining anything; you’d just see someone aging. Hence, there are these moments that you get from these little films that I think are worth looking at.”

So there might be a follow-up to ‘Tiny Colour Movies’ if you are so interested in this genre?

JF: “Yeah, I’ve already written some cold, grey suit music. I like the ‘Quiet Man’, really. Actually, Aztrin (Zithromax) from canada, I started a ‘Quiet Man’ film in 1970, but I couldn’t do anything with it because it was too expensive. I shot it on Super-8 and I thought I’d transfer it to video to edit, but that would have cost me about £20,000 pounds then and I just didn’t have the money.”

I knew you were writing a ‘Quiet Man’ book, but not a film as well.

JF: “Literally it was just this suit that I’d bought in an Oxfam shop and I got some friends of mine to wear it, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. I’d film them in various locations in London. I had the idea of putting it together at some later date. But it wasn’t finished because I gave up with it because it was so expensive to make.”

It’s amazing how that suit triggered all sorts of effects in your life.

JF: “Oh yes, it was really interesting. Then it was a process of wearing that suit and seeing what happens to you after being a punk rocker, or something. It was a very interesting change in how people view you.”

Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, Anonymity, is that what you mean?

JF: “Yes. So, all that led to these other things. Over the years that suit’s made its own sort of story up and that’s what I want to concentrate on for the next project. I’m going to continue to shoot it on Super-8 because now I can digitise that and edit it myself. It’s taken thirty years to get to the point where I can work on the film now.”

So we can expect a film in the not too distant future?

JF: “Yes, there will be some film soon. It will probably take me about a year yet because I’m just shooting at the moment.”

In a recent interview, you made the comment that Kraftwerk’s ‘Neon Lights’ opened up a whole new area for electronic music which is, as yet, still unexplored, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. What did you mean and have you started to investigate this unchartered territory?

JF: “Well, I think artists often do that. Rx free Aztrin (Zithromax), They do a track and you want to hear the follow-up, but they don’t follow it up like the Beatles with ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’. There was that one track and I thought, at the time, ‘Wow, this is the future,’ and then nothing happened. So, that was the end of that. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, It was like a dead end, but an intriguing dead end. Lots of bands do that kind of thing. ‘Neon Lights’ happened to be one of them because Kraftwerk never really tried to do any ballads after that and they never did anything that was almost without percussion. It’s very rhythmic that piece; it’s a very nice electro-ballad with a very simple melody and it’s almost sentimental. It’s a got a romantic, nostalgic, technological sentimentality. I thought that might be the beginning of a new phase, but they never followed that up at all - they just went the opposite way.”

And you’re suggesting that no one followed it up.

JF: “Yes, no one followed it up, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. It’s like a pointer that will be taken up at some point later on by someone else, just like ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ was taken up by people like me and the Chemical Brothers, and people who are interested in drone music or drum loops or chants or that kind of thing, Aztrin (Zithromax) maximum dosage. So, you might have to wait another ten or fifteen years until someone takes that track as being the foundation of their next phase.”

Clearly you have a dedicated fan base, but how difficult has it been to finance various projects, particularly when some of your music is so avant-garde?

JF: “It’s been alright, actually. I’ve always had the philosophy that one project finances the next project and it’s worked out so far. That’s all I can say, really. Sometimes it’s been close!”

Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, Looking back at your three albums with Ultravox – ‘Ultravox!’, ‘Ha. Ha. Ha!’ and ‘Systems of Romance’ – what’s your impression of them now. Do you ever listen to them?

JF: “No, I don’t listen to my old records much.”

Why?

JF: “Well, there’s so much else to get on with. If you spend too much time listening to what you did, you get imprisoned by it and that’s a danger. It’s like believing your own publicity, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. It locks you into a fool’s paradise and you have to avoid that. Aztrin (Zithromax) photos, It seems like someone else did them because it was thirty years ago almost exactly since we started the first one – 1976. What I hear is an idealistic art student who is a bit rebellious and who is bored in London because London didn’t have any scene at all at that time. There was nothing on the streets at all. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, Nothing. Punk rock and that was it. I had a lot of ideas that I wanted to play with and this was the playground – London – in ’76 which is an interestingly dull, grey, grainy place. It drizzled a lot and it hasn’t changed a bit, really!”

‘Systems of Romance’ is often seen as a musical blueprint for Gary Numan who has been very complimentary towards you as a major influence.

JF: “Gary has been very generous about that album. There are lots of other little blueprints in there as well, like Robin [Simons] guitar playing. For me, he’s one of the most important guitarists ever because he simply invented that modern techno guitar style.”

You often say in interviews what an excellent guitarist Robin Simons is, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. Would you like to work with him again?

JF: “Oh yeah. I did work on a couple of albums with him on my solo stuff. There’s still a lot more to do with Robin. There’s a lot more to do with all of them, to be honest because Bill [Billie Currie] was also a real pioneer in the way he used synthesizers and the sounds he got from them with very limited means at that point. He got some of the most powerful sounds that have even been recorded by a synthesizer.”

Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, Billie Currie’s playing on the ARP Odyssey was electrifying. The expressions he produced through that instrument were incredible.

JF: “Yes, he’s a phenomenally good player and he invented all that himself.”

He managed to produce some astonishing acid-like squelches through that ARP.

JF: “Oh yeah, Aztrin (Zithromax) dose, he produced a language that was taken by other areas later on. He blueprinted it.”

He hasn’t really taken any credit for this, has he?

JF: “Never got any credit for it, no and the same with Robin. Robin invented new guitar and everybody’s used that from the Edge onwards. Everybody uses it now. It’s so much part of the language that everyone thinks it’s always been there, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. But that’s a compliment to Robin because everyone assumes that’s how a guitar should sound now, but it didn’t sound like that before Robin got hold of it. Chris [Cross] was also the first to use synthetic bass properly live on stage.”

Was that the Mini-Moog?

JF: “He was the sort of bass player who played very fundamental bass using a synthesizer and do lead lines as well. He was the sort of bass player who played very fundamental bass using a synthesizer, but he also contributed to other parts of the songs too, so he wasn’t just a bass player. And then Warren [Cann] with drum machines. We were the first band using drum machines.”

Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, For example, on the track ‘Hiroshima Mon Amour’.

JF: “Yes. All that was working together at the time ‘Hiroshima’ was the first track which blue printed ‘Systems.’ I wanted to try and follow that song. I wanted to see what we could do with a more mechanical romanticism.”

‘Systems of Romance’ was the album where Ultravox really gelled, Buy generic Aztrin (Zithromax), but why do you think the band received such a negative press at the time. The music press were very hostile to you, weren’t they?

JF: “Yeah. I don’t really know, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. I think punk became a very conservative movement very quickly, so by ’77 it was like talking to a bunch of old Conservatives: they had their rules and that was the way things should be. You couldn’t step outside of that. It was a kind of cultural Stalinism.”

You didn’t really fit into to any of this, did you?

JF: “No, we were sinners. We were unorthodox heretics…”

And, unlike most punk bands, you could play your instruments.

JF: “We weren’t really great musicians, but that wasn’t the premise of the band. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, I think people [in Ultravox] became good in the areas they got hold of and that’s what happened. I think if you make a space, then you have to fill it and that’s what we did. We cleared a space from what we thought was getting dull. We let everything rush by us. I remember taking that decision very deliberately at the end of 1977 thinking, Aztrin (Zithromax) treatment, ‘This is a year old now, this movement, and it’s as dull as ditchwater and it’s still rushing on headlong and it doesn’t know where it’s going, so we’ll let it rush past us. Let’s just stand aside and let it go past us, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. We’ve got a quiet place we can work in and where we can make our music.’ It was real conscious decision and that’s what happened. Of course the whole thing went rushing on and it felt like we’d missed the train and we were there at the station. So, we just decided to set up camp and wait, and that’s what we did.”

After ‘Systems of Romance’ and with regard to ‘Metamatic’, did you float the idea to the other members of the band to make a stripped-down, purely electronic album or did that just happen when you left?

JF: “No, because I didn’t think you could do that with a band. In a way I didn’t need to because you only need a drum machine and a couple of synths and that was it. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, And I realised that because I’d already made some demos. I remember working on ‘Quiet Men’ and realising that I could work like that my self. Also, you can’t keep people waiting around for a year or two while you do something that may or may not work out because, My Aztrin (Zithromax) experience, at that time, it wasn’t sure that anyone would like it. It might have been a complete waste of time. But, I just felt it so strongly. I think it was become of electric guitars, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. I’d seen, when I was a kid, how being able to get cheap electric guitars had made a big difference; suddenly there were a whole lot of bands and that would never have happened if you couldn’t have afforded an electric guitar. Synthesizers had just suddenly got within range; after being fifty thousand pounds, they were suddenly a thousand pounds, or something like that.”

That’s still a lot of money.

JF: “Yes, that was an awful lot of money then, but you could buy a few of them second hand. You could begin to acquire them.”

Is that what you did?

JF: “Yeah, yeah. Hence, you could begin to get them at a reasonable price. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, So, you had these marvellous noise making machines that could make noises like nothing else had ever been able to and I wanted to explore that. It was so frustrating waiting to do it, Aztrin (Zithromax) reviews. I remember having to do that last tour with the band and thinking, ‘I just want to start work on the album and I have to tour.’ I just wanted to get on with it. I knew what I wanted to do.”

‘Metamatic’ seems influenced by British science-fiction, particularly JG Ballard.

JF: “Yes, I wanted consciously to do that because I’m very interested in this idea of thought experiments; you know, what happens if you take elements. I thought, ‘What would happen to music, popular music, if you took America out of the equation. What would it sound like?’ So, that’s what I tried to do and that was ‘Metamatic’, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. The idea was that you shouldn’t have an American influence in it. That was the whole point of it. It’s European. It looks to Europe rather than America, although there are strains of America in it, but they’re American-European – it’s Bernstein which I’ve always liked. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, I’ve liked some of his scores, some of his modes of writing, because that’s what informed some of the melodies on Metamatic as well as European melodies that I’d heard when I was hitchhiking when I was very young. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) no prescription, You’d stop and have a cup of coffee in a bar and you’d hear this strange music from the jukebox and it was always this minor melody French or German schlager music, or some odd stuff sounding like The Shadows, but European. That’s the kind of music I really picked up on and remembered and tried to reproduce in ‘Metamatic’, but the memory of it rather than the actuality. So, it was a kind of European motorway music that I was trying to make. But at the same time, America is undeniably a big influence because that’s where Hollywood is established.”

Were ‘Touch and Go’ and ‘A Blurred Girl’ from ‘Metamatic’ written with the other members of Ultravox?

JF: “No, I did write the songs. The way it worked with the band was I wrote the songs, usually on a guitar and I’d write the basic chords and the melody and have a rough idea of some of the parts, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. Then I’d go in and whistle the tunes to everybody, and then we’d work on them and people would put things into them, and we’d rearrange things between us and see how it worked. If you had a good drum beat, that would change the songs slightly. Gradually these things would make a shape that satisfied everybody. So, I wrote the basic stuff, order Aztrin (Zithromax) online c.o.d. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, So I’d already started those songs; we’d attempted them, we’d rehearsed them.”

It’d always been a bit of a mystery to me because on the ‘Vienna’ album – the first Ultravox album without you – there’s ‘Mr X’ which is very similar to ‘Touch and Go’.

JF: “Well, Billie contributed to those melodies and some of that was his style, some of that was mine, so it’s a mix of things.”

I saw you and Louis Gordon supporting The Human League in 2003 at the Dome in Brighton. Phil Oakey seems a big fan of ‘Metamatic’ and your more recent work. He said you’re the best support act he has ever had. Do you mind that ‘Metamatic’ is the album most people still associate with you?

JF: “No, not really. At least there is one, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. I think the important thing is, if you’re an artist of any kind, to make something that people do remember. The fact that it might not always necessarily be the best one or the most interesting one almost doesn’t matter. Actually, I don’t have a problem with ‘Metamatic’s’ popularity because I like that album.”

But do you have a favourite album which you’ve written?

JF: “No, I don’t have a favourite one. There are bits of each album which I still listen to and I can still think, Aztrin (Zithromax) price, coupon, ‘Oh, that’s interesting,’ and it surprises me to hear it. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, So, those things are dotted all around. But with regard to ‘Metamatic’, I’m quite happy with that album. It was a very ruthless album. I just decided it was going to be two synths and a drum machine and that’s it.”

In electro-pop circles it’s a revered album.

JF: “I don’t know, but if so, I’m glad it is. That’s about all I can say about it really, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. It was just a decision to make something in a very ruthless basis and kick out everything I knew about making songs and to substitute machines for that and see what happens.”

It’s rather Germanic electronica; the sound is really stripped bare.

JF: “Yeah, yeah. It was a bit scary to do because I do remember after listening to it, thinking I may have gone too far.”

You’ve made three albums with Louis Gordon and a fourth is out in August. Has it got a title yet?

JF: “It’s called ‘Impossible.’”

That partnership with Louis seems very productive and your work together seems to be greeted with great enthusiasm by fans. Will you continue to follow the techno-hard electronic theme from ‘Crash and Burn’ with him?

JF: “Yes, I think so because I think that’s what he does best. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, Actually, that’s not quite true because Louis does lots of things very well and he’s as found of ambient as I am. But when we work together it tends it tends to get like this; well, kjøpe Aztrin (Zithromax) på nett, köpa Aztrin (Zithromax) online, what we call it is ‘electron-rock’ because it’s not dance music and it’s not particularly techno – it’s a sort of electronic-rock that we make.”

Although ‘Sex Video’ from ‘Crash and Burn’ is probably the closest to techno that you and Louis get.

JF: “Yeah, so there are visible edges of all that in and we’re happy that that’s the case because that’s what we are. Louis’s just great to work with because we don’t talk much. We just sort of do things and they work out. You have to know where someone comes from and you have to have a mutual understanding of what you’re about to be able to do that. Indeed, that’s very valuable, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. We can both go into a studio and three weeks later we have an album and we’ve hardly spoken apart from afterwards.”

Is the album finished?

JF: “Yeah, it’s just a matter of editing it down.”

Who is Louis Gordon because I can’t find any information on him?

JF: “He’s a Manchester electronic wiz, really. He’s a sort of punk electronic genius. He was around in Manchester since the 1990s. He was part of that whole Manchester thing around Sankeys which is a sort of derelict industrial zone. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, There was a guy called Crom who used to have a studio there and a guy called Roger who works with New Order. There was a whole group of musicians around there and Louis has always been around that area, but never really consolidated anything, but he didn’t care as long he was making music, he didn’t care what he did. He’s had records out on Transmat, Comprar en línea Aztrin (Zithromax), comprar Aztrin (Zithromax) baratos, the Detroit label, but no-one’s pieced together what’s he’s done. He’s been around a lot.”

I did try and track him.

JF: “It’s not possible because he’s done it under lots of different names. There was a band called Digital Justice. They used to make names up all the time, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. So, there’s a whole Manchester-techno and Detroit-techno area and it’s almost impossible to understand. In Manchester we used to listen to these records by a band called Le Car, who has now become ADULT. We discovered that it was a whole label and the whole scene out in Detroit, Chicago, New York and Toronto to a certain extent, that likes that kind of very electronic music. So, there are all kinds of strange links. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, I remember just beginning to get a picture of them, of all these connections. So, Louis’s part of all that. I met him when a friend of mine said, ‘You’ve got to come and see this guy play because he’s really good.’ Louis was playing in Shropshire in a country house.”

Was this a private party?

JF: “Yeah, ordering Aztrin (Zithromax) online. It was a sort of squatters’ country house, a derelict place in which people had set a commune up. It was very tatty. We went in and I just remember this room full of lights and smoke and huge noise, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. When the lights cleared, it was Louis. He was playing by himself with this drum machine, guitar, and a very old synthesizer. He played for about five hours straight and it all sounded wonderful. It was dead simple, but really effective.”

What sort of stuff was he playing at that time?

JF: “It was dance music because he kept a beat going all the way through so people could dance to it – that was the function. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, But during it, he played acoustic guitar, electric guitar, plus synthesizers and sequencers and arpeggios and all kinds of very straightforward stuff, but it all worked and that was the impressive thing about it. He didn’t put a foot wrong in four hours which is pretty hard to do.”

Were you watching him the whole time?!

JF: “Yeah, I was just thinking, ‘This is brilliant,’ and I just wanted to watch because it was so good. I don’t know who was most exhausted by the end of it, Aztrin (Zithromax) dosage, him or us. It was a great experience. Then I got talking to him afterwards and it turned out that ‘Metamatic’ was one of the first records he’d bought and he liked it a lot. So we decided to do some work together, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. We went to Manchester and got in Crom’s studio and did some recording. We did two tracks and they worked out right away so we decided to make an album.”

Bizarre question for you: do you still own a 6-foot Yamaha concert grand piano?

JF: “No, I had one in the studio once. I wish I still owned it. It had to stay with the studio, The Garden, in London. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, I hated leaving it, but it was too big to take away.”

Do you still have a family in Chorley, Lancashire?

JF: “Yeah, yeah. It’s a big family. There are lots of cousins. My mother had seven brothers. Very biblical, isn’t it?!”

Are you a Catholic?

JF: “No. My father’s side of the family is, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. My mother’s side, which I’m closer to, is Protestant, buy Aztrin (Zithromax) without a prescription. They all have lots of kids, so there are lots of us.”

You and Louis are on tour next month. You’ve stated elsewhere that Louis has been the one who likes to tour while you’ve been more reluctant. Was that the case this time round?

JF: “Oh yes, always the case. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, Louis loves it. He loves being on stage, loves playing, loves everything to do with that. Louis loves every aspect of the whole thing, so he’s great to have around. He takes the impetus off me, so I sort of just watch it all happen.”

Are you not happy when you’re on stage. Are you okay when you’re up there?!

JF: “Oh, I’m okay when I’m up there. I’m alright when it’s all going on, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. When we play, that’s all right. Aztrin (Zithromax) images, But it’s the rest of the time – the other 23 or 22 hours that irritate me because I want to be doing more than just sitting in some kind of vehicle travelling somewhere.”

Do you always need to be doing something because that’s the impression I get?

JF: “Yeah. I’m not neurotic about it or anything, it’s just that what I like doing is taking a walk in London and just watch what’s happening around me or daydreaming. I think London is a very good instrument for daydreaming.”

Do you daydream a lot?

JF: “Yes, I think it’s great. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, I figured out that you can make some kind of sense of it because it’s something to do with when you come to a city like London, and you don’t know it, you have to go with associations before it feels comfortable. It’s a blank and you walk around and you feel completely alienated, and then gradually as you walk down the same street five or six times, you begin to get to know things; you begin to make some friends, you go out to familiar places. So, what you’ve done, you’ve sort of programmed yourself and your memory by walking through these places. And, every time you do it, you build up another layer of association so it makes the whole thing richer. So, the more you walk around those streets, the more it becomes a part of you and you become part of it, no prescription Aztrin (Zithromax) online. Gradually, you become comfortable in it by literally programming yourself with the city and I think that’s something to do with what happens, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. When you walk around the city you’re picking up accidents and associations; you know, there’s a bit of memory of someone who looks like someone else, and you pass a familiar place that’s shut down and maybe been replaced by another restaurant, or it might have been a club years ago which is my experience of walking down Wardour Street and seeing where the Marquee was which is now a Conran-owned restaurant. So, with all those kinds of changes, you realise that you’re part of a living organism, you know, I think cities are. As part of it, we’re a cell in that organism, so you gradually programme yourself with it and that’s what daydreaming is. It’s not really daydreaming; it’s sort of acknowledging all the randomness and richness of it and using that to make a mythology of your own which you can use in various ways. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, My mum and dad took me around London when I was about seven and the memories of that really stayed with me. When I walk in certain places I can see certain shop fronts that I know were there when I was a child so it brings a lot of associations.”

Are you familiar with Ian Sinclair’s take on London because what you say reminds me of his work?

JF: “Yes, it’s the same sort of thing. It’s interesting to read what he’s written about London. Aztrin (Zithromax) from mexico, I haven’t read the whole book, ‘London Orbital’, and I’ve only read bits of it. It’s one of those books I’ve got on my bookshelves to read and I’ve dipped into it and it’s very interesting. I’m anxious to read it and I’ve got some time to do that, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. But, yeah, it’s right, there is a lot of writing to do about this city yet. I remember about fifteen years ago an author saying that London hadn’t been made into a myth land yet; writers hadn’t really made it into a myth land as they had with New York or Los Angeles – you know, you had Raymond Chandler; it had also been done for Paris but no one had done it for London. Then along came Peter Ackroyd who did ‘Hawksmoore’which, effectively, began the same process for London. People like Ian Sinclair are doing the same thing, but with modern associations as well, so it’s great to see that happening because this is a city which is actually very rich and deep and not many people have got into it yet. Ackroyd has to some extent; Sinclair has done the modern work.”

Would you consider writing an instrumental piece for the City of London? Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, JF: “Yeah, I’d like to. That might come.”

You’ve played a range of older Ultravox and John Foxx material in your live sets with Louis. Is there any other material from the past that you might revisit in this tour which we haven’t heard yet?

JF: “Oh yes, Aztrin (Zithromax) pharmacy. We’ve just being doing ‘Slow Motion’ and ‘The Man Who Dies Everyday’ and maybe a couple of others will be in this new set. Louis likes those a lot anyway. He’s the one who wants all that lot, so I just go along with it!”

You seem to be very popular with music journalists and musicians working in the genre of electro-pop, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. For example, Dave Clarke cites you as a major influence. You’ve been approached by several figures in dance music to do various projects, for example, Lee Norris and the single ‘Free Robot’. Can you tell me something about that particular project?

JF: “Well, Lee’s a great guy. He’s a very enthusiastic character and a very capable musician with a lot of strong ideas which I think are really interesting. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, He said let’s do a mix of that and so I said, ‘Okay, let’s swap some tracks and see what comes out of that’ – and that’s what we did. I hadn’t really done that before. I’d worked in the dance genre in the beginning of acid house when I did Nation 12 with Bomb the Bass’s Tim Simenon – the ‘lost’ album.”

I thought the Nation 12 album’s been released.

JF: “Yeah, it’s just out, but that album never got finished so it’s like a snapshot of an album in progress. It’s not the finished article, but it’s interesting to listen to. Aztrin (Zithromax) price, So going back to what I was saying earlier, I’d worked with those kinds of people but things have really moved on a lot since then and people like Lee have come in. I think the Nation 12 thing is interesting because it was when things hadn’t gelled, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. You had a lot of DJs who were trying to shoe-horn into what they did and it didn’t always work. Sometimes it did, sometimes it didn’t. It was a very interesting exercise to try and shoe-horn things together and it gelled a couple of times, and a couple of times it didn’t. By the time we came along, he’d grown up with that stuff, with my stuff and grown up with all the dance genres too. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, So, it was easy for him to put the two together and make it work and I found that fascinating because mixing genres is always very risky and, sometimes, very difficult unless you can do it in an instinctive way, and that’s what he managed to do.”

What are your projects for 2007/2008?

JF: “Well, there’s a thing with cutting up movies which I’m going to do. I’ve realised that you can cut up video in the same way that you can cut up music and, as we know, a whole musical form came out of sampling, a revolution in dance music in itself. Now you can do the same with video, so everything’s up for, what I call, ‘repurposing’ – that’s my self-invented term for it.”

Repurposing?

JF: “Repurposing, Aztrin (Zithromax) brand name. It’s another word for theft, really!”

Or homage?!

JF: “Yes, yes, homage, collage, you name it, but the newer term is repurposing. So, I think repurposing will be the theme of the next generation of film and what will happen is that people will appropriate film and repurpose it according to their own wants. So, in other words, you could take several movies, chop them together and make a new narrative and use them live on stage with music which is partly what I intend to do, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. I’ve already made a short film which is about thirty minutes and it’s called ‘Man Made of Shadows’ and it’s a cut-up of several different movies with a voice-over that makes another narrative for all those moments in the film. I think they’ll be a lot more of that. So, I think music and video will get much more integrated. People are already beginning to do VJing which is the same thing and video mash-ups which is another interesting manifestation of the same idea. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, I think it’ll get more serious and interesting. Also, the other interesting thing is virals which are those short movies which people fire at each other through the internet. Japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal, Virals are 30-second or less movies. Some of them are moments of violence or pornography or other fascinating things that they like to fire at each other during the day. It’s developing into a whole little world of virals, everything from the very nasty and slap-happy sort of video (which I detest), but they do point to a new use of video and film.”

So you’re going to explore this area?

JF: “Yeah, but I’m not going to go around slapping people, but I have begun to design 30-second video squirts that you can fire around and I think that’s completely fascinating. There’s a whole mythology around who shoots these things and why, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. I’ve detected one or two serious presences there who are actually making imitation movies – agencies make these things to do advertising and there a few who are the equivalent of Banksy who are in there making videos that are like Banksy videos and firing them around which are imitations of the imitations. So, there’s a whole world, a whole subculture which will emerge quite strongly. What it means is that those people who are getting good film-making skills, and they’re subverting another medium which is always a good start in life, they’ll produce something very interesting, just as Banksy’s emerging as a serious artist because he is a serious artist.”

OK, so there are all of those projects. Will there be another album with Louis Gordon?

JF: “Oh yes, I’ll continue to work with Louis, where to buy Aztrin (Zithromax). Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, I’ve just begun to work on some stuff with Harold Budd. There’s some stuff with Robin Guthrie out of the Cocteau Twins. We’ve just finished an album. There’s an album with two of the people I worked with on that concert that I did with Harold in Brighton, one of them is Steve Jansen from the band Japan. Steve is a seriously good percussionist and drummer, very inventive guy, one of the best which came out of British rock. It’s been great working with him, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. We worked on some gong percussion things which sound unlikely until I saw him performing one of the pieces, and he made this beautiful improvisation with a gong – it’s a great piece of music and the frequencies which are available from that kind of instrument are phenomenal; really deep gut-wrenching bass that came out of that.”

So what are you are Steve Jansen doing together.

JF: “We’ve recorded a lot of sounds that Steve made using different kinds of percussion, different kinds of gong and I’m going to work with them because I can sing to them because they’re all pitched. I know I can sing to these sounds because I tried it as he was playing and I know it’ll work. So, what I’ve got to do now is put a voice to it and also some very minimal instrumentation, very minimal because I want what he’s doing do be the focus of it.”

Will there be a fourth ‘Cathedral Oceans’?

JF: “No, that might be it for ‘Cathedral Oceans’. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, Three albums just about covers what I wanted to do with it. We’ve just done a surround sound version of the last one and a DVD with visuals.”

Haven’t you done some exhibition work connected with Cathedral Oceans.

JF: “Yes, I’m going to continue to do that too because I’ve finally got it into the shape that I wanted it to be in. I’m also going to start doing performances with it.”

Performances where?

JF: “In public spaces. I think we’re going to do one at the ICA next March. What’s going to happen is that we’re going to project ‘Cathedral Oceans’ on a couple of screens if possible, so that different images will be playing at different times and we’ll loop the whole thing so it just keeps on moving with one soundtrack – so that will be working on automatic, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. Then in the evening they’ll be a performance where I’m going to work with the French film ‘Last Year at Marienbad’. I love that film. It’s an interesting film because it coincides with a lot of things I’d like to do musically. We’ll see whether it works or not. I think I’ll do that at that ICA show.”

Has anyone else approached you from the dance music scene for a project? Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, JF: “A lot of people want to do some work. I did some stuff with Jori Hulkkonen and that worked out really well. I enjoyed working with him. I’m not that knowledgeable about that area. The thing I’m most familiar with is what we’re going to do in America which is work with that group of bands which are a sort of modern dance electronic; it’s not really dance, it’s an electronic scene that does the same thing as we would do, which is a kind of mutated electron-rock, and oddly enough, there’s a great deal of common understanding. So, we’re going to do some work together this September, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. I’m also going to do some tracks and see how they work out with Vincent Gallo (as in the film ‘Buffalo 66’).”

From the mid-1980s you had a period where you disappeared off the music scene for quite a while and now, since you’ve been back, you haven’t stopped.

JF: “Yes, I don’t know why that is particularly. I think things have changed. Now it’s a lot broader, isn’t it. There’s a whole scene in the arts and music.”

Pop music wasn’t in a great way in 1985 at the time you left. Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, JF: No, no, that’s one of the reasons I went away. I thought I’d rather do something visual.”

Where did you go?

JF: “I went to Italy for a while and enjoyed myself because it’s a great country. I went to Rome to work on a Antonioni film, ‘Identification of a Woman’ in 1983 which is a very haphazard existence, but very interesting. It was a great experience. Also Rome was great.”

I’m surprised you haven’t done more film music because what you write is so suited to that medium. Obviously you are applying music to film, but not commercial film.

JF: “I think a lot of commercial cinema is a very locked form and doesn’t allow much new stuff into it, but I think it will change; things are beginning to open up, Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription. So, I think what Vincent [Gallo] wants to do is do something which might work with film, although we don’t know yet; it’s very non-specific what we’re going to do. We want to keep it that way and I like him as a film director because I like ‘Buffalo 66’ a lot. It’s a great film. I like that sort of film making attitude. I think more of that will happen.”

You mean guerrilla film making? Buy Aztrin (Zithromax) Without Prescription, JF: “Yes, exactly. It’s a very interesting way to work and working outside of Hollywood is interesting, but working inside of Hollywood would be interesting too.”

Would you ever contemplate touring America with Louis?

JF: “Yes, we’re going to do that. We’re going to do some gigs in America in November. As far as I know, we’re playing in New York, Detroit, Chicago, Toronto, maybe a couple of other places around there. My music seems to work either in the rustbelt or high-techno places. Detroit’s a bit both; it’s like Manchester with machine guns!”

John Foxx’s new album ‘Tiny Colour Movies’ is out August 7th on Metamatic. Ultravox’s first three albums, remastered and expanded, are out now.
