Did anyone else notice that this clip which rage played last week is slightly different to the version on the self-titled Duran Duran VHS release from 1983? Two versions of this clip - I never knew. The rage version actually has the ending too, the VHS release is truncated.
I recorded it but probably won't keep it as the 1st album re-issue with the rare video's has the full video with the faded out ending!
FABULOUS,.... Hmmmm, Duran Duran, The Human League and John Foxx. Brett, that was like a New Romantic Synth Pop orgasm!
John Foxx is almost forgotten these days except for the hardcore 80's fans like us. Metamatic is one of the classics of the synth/nr genre.
Yes, I saw John Foxx live a few years ago when he came to Melbourne. The show was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! And John was SOOOO nicer! :-) I got him to sign some of my 7"... singles and got photo's with him.
My favourite John Foxx track is 'Touch And Go'. Metamatic is purely GENIUS of the HIGHEST standard!
Metamatic is a great album. Jason, I would have loved to have seen John Foxx. I was hooked as soon as I heard 'Dancing Like A Gun' and 'Endlessly' all those years ago on 'CountDown'. It was great when his back catalogue was released a while ago.
I LUUUURVE Endlessly and Dancing Like A Gun as well. I HAVE the John Foxx vhs from the 80s with all the video's :-) Would you like a copy on dvd?
The video for 'Dancing Like A Gun' is simply SUPERB *+*
The one on the Duran Duran re-issue of the first album does fade out and it doesn't have the black and white scenes with Simon Le Bon walking down the stairs like on the 1983 Duran Duran video compilation...
