Ultravox – Hot Club 2/23/79

Th original London new wave band Ultravox with John Foxx as frontman and the main driving force behind the band before Midge Ure took over.

John Foxx: “March 1979 – Island had dropped us, and I was planning to leave because I thought synthesizers were going to change music in the same way that the electric guitar did. Then we were offered a tour of America by Miles Copeland and his brother [Ian] – there was a big audience for British new wave acts at that time. We flew over on the cheap with Laker Airlines and, as there were no luggage restrictions, took all of our instruments and our backline amps. When we got off the plane Miles’s brother was waiting for us with a van and we did six weeks with one day off. People like the artist Jean Michel Basquiat and John Frusciante from the Chili Peppers came to see us. The tour ended in Hollywood at the Whisky A Go-Go. After the last show I just told them all that I had had enough and was leaving, that they could have the name and the band identity. Things were already tense – at the end of long tours everyone is full of adrenalin but very tired – and a minor argument broke out although I can’t remember what it was about. Billy and Chris walked out of the dressing room and Warren stayed hut was really angry, although he didn’t shout, as we weren’t that sort of people. We left the venue in separate cars and I flew back to England on my own the next day. It was a great wrench to leave, but the grey suits were waiting. I wanted to work alone with a tape recorder, drum machine, a synthesizer and get rid of anything that was rock’n’roll. As for their later success with Midge Ure, I have nothing to say about them, as that band has nothing to do with me.”

Philadelphia Punk Gigography 1977-1987

For a few years I was working on this Philly Punk gigography covering the years 1977-1987. I cut off at 1987 because the music diversified so much after that that I thought it would be too much plus, I moved in one direction while others moved in another direction even though all the music could be considered Punk in some form at least. I haven’t been able to finish it because of Covid and the library being closed for a while and also, I wasn’t able to pay for newspapers.com the last several years. Most of what I have listed is from old flyer, fanzines, websites and newspapers. I only did newspaper research for Hot Club and other venues up to summer 1978. So, there is two years of research needed between summer 1978 and 1980. And, then for Omni’s and Ripley’s in the early 1980s. I also added the pre-Punk stuff from Stooges, MC5, New York Dolls, Velvet Underground/Lou Reed, Patti Smith and a few choice others like Hawkwind with Lemmy and Roxy Music that I thought were good influences for Punk.
