Great bands from the past
19 February 2023
I’m quite sure that the masses think that Vienna boys outfit Ultravox led by Casanova
Midge Ure was the band’s original line-up. Wrong. The band formed in 1974 in London named Tiger Lily at first, but became quickly Ultravox! (with exclamation mark) led
by charismatic singer/songwriter John Foxx (in the middle on the cover of their debut album on top) who definitely was a huge Roxy Music fan.
The new wavers’ two LPs (Ultravox! and Ha! Ha! Ha!) had that early
glam and glitter Rpxy-ness and their appetite for sexy, provocative,
and razzle-dazzle pop/rock in look, vision, and music.
Foxx left in 1979 to pursue a solo career. It was then that
Midge Ure took over and the band became a cheesy but
very popular pop group.
Three great Ultravox!John Foxx moments…
