Gone But Not Forgotten – ULTRAVOX! (Original Line-Up With JOHN FOXX)
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…
