John Foxx formed Ultravox! in 1975, and the band recorded three influential albums for Island (one produced by Brian Eno), before Foxx decided to go solo in 1979.
“Metamatic”, his first solo album, released in early 1980, charted at number 18 in the UK, and was preceded by the classic hit single “Underpass”, included on the album. Also featured is the follow-up hit “No-One Driving”.
The album also includes two further hit singles “Burning Car” and “Miles Away”, and five non-album b-sides, as well as the previously unreleased tracks “To Be With You”, “Cinemascope”, “Young Love”, “Like A Miracle” and “A New Kind Of Man [alternate version]”.
