Analogue Circuit: Live At The Roundhouse is limited to 2000 copies only.
The 3 disc set features the first ever live John Foxx DVD, plus a double album of the show, all in striking new artwork by designer Jonathan Barnbrook. Analogue Circuitbrings to life one of the most lavish and ambitious projects of the artist’s 30 year career – filmed in June 2010 with multiple cameras at one of London’s biggest and most distinctive venues. Rich, powerful analogue synths; Robin Simon on guitar playing early Ultravox material; surreal VJ cut-ups and Barnbrook graphics; a film by I Robot director Alex Proyas, a brilliant opening Metamatic section; songs from the recent classic, Interplay; all of this in a unique, one-off show. Extras include a photo gallery, Jonathan Barnbrook’s films for ‘Interplay‘ and an interview with Future Music just before the band went on stage. This fantastic box set is a John Foxx And The Maths online store exclusive.

Excellent review of Cargo London show on 5 September by The Quietus
”Every day at the Quietus we get sent Korg plug-in Fisher Price cold wave by earnest cheek-sucking young things who dream of being Belgians with a ready access to cheap speed. Their depressing retro minimalism forgets that early synth music was formed out of necessity. With his melodic chops, vivid lyrical imagination, and indecently able collaborators, John Foxx’s electronic maximalism by turn sounds futurist and, perhaps more importantly, glows as a warm human soul . . . At the end, there’s one of those lovely moments when the applause doesn’t stop, and you sense that a lot of people who came here on a retro tip have been moved by something unexpectedly of the moment. “A new kind of man”, indeed.”
The first two albums from John Foxx And The Maths – Interplay and The Shape Of Things – are now available on Limited Edition 180g Heavyweight Vinyl. Both albums are presented in gatefold sleeves, with picture inner bags, which have been designed by Jonathan Barnbrook. You can order your copies HERE
