Hot Shot Presents Ultravox! John Foxx V. Midge Ure says
One band! Two singers! Two different sounds!
The early days of the band fronted by John Foxx, showed strong art rock leanings adding a touch of punk influence, with their first three LPs. Foxx, along with keyboardist, Billy Currie, drummer, Warren Cann, bassist, Chris Cross, and guitarist Stevie Shields forged a unique sound, which found it's zenith on the 2nd LP, 1977's 'Ha!-Ha!-Ha!' LP. Shields left to be replaced by Robin Simon, but after their third LP, 1979's 'Systems of Romance', Foxx left to pursue a unique synth pop solo career.
During the downtime, Currie began working as part of the New Romantic studio supergroup, Visage. where he met Midge Ure late of pretty boy glam band, Slik, and Glan Matlock's post-Sex Pistols band, The Rich Kids, which also featured Blitz Club DJ and Visage main stay, Rusty Eagan. Ure went with Currie to Ultravox as their new guitarist/vocalist, and with a new member, a new sound also emerged, one they were perfecting in Visage, the New Romantic sound. Their image had a very 1920's Art Nouveau approach, and a huge hit with the synthpop classic "Vienna", their success continued until they called it a day in 1985.

This night expect to hear songs from both Ultravox eras, plus Midge Ure's other bands and projects, such as Slik, Visage, and The Rich Kids, as well as tracks from John Foxx's synth classic 'Metamatic'!

All this along with lots of late 70s/early 80s post-punk records all night long, and it's FREE!!!
