New stuff from John Foxx and Blancmange

August 22, 2008 · Posted in Electronic Music 

September 22 we will get a new collection by John Foxx from label Demon/Edsel. “Glimmer: The Best of John Foxx” will be a double-CD with material from his entire career including singles, album tracks, re-works of old Ultravox tracks, new remixes and his ambient “Cathedral Oceans” project. That project is also going to be re-released by the same label in 2009 and 2010.

And they don’t stop there, classic synthpop duo Blancmange will have their albums “Happy Families”, “Mange Tout” and “Believe You Me” released in new, fresh versions. The exact date is not set as of now, but it’s clear that they will all include the 12” mixes and some B-sides. The band is also said to be working on new material.

And of course and old Blancmange video:

Here is the last video from the Blancmange Video 45 VHS. This is Living on the Ceiling. Classic synthpop from a band that disappeared but now is back. Check out their stuff on MySpace. I wonder if they have their own website… should check on that.
