News Cargo Review

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.”
