Ultravox - BBC Radio 1 Live in Concert (1992) Retail CD
Not many bands can boast a music business icon like Eno as producer on their debut album (not even U2!) but Ultravox! pulled it off in 1976. Indeed, Eno flew back from production sessions with Bowie in Berlin to work on this, so enthused was he with what they were doing. Punk was at its height at the time and the early Ultravox! - as typified here - were both inside and outside it; taking its energy but fusing it with the artier Roxy/Bowie influence of a few years before and even looking out to what might be on the horizon. Outstanding tracks: debut single Dangerous Rhythm with its subtle reggaemore… lilt and edgy lyric, Slip Away, the arty I Want To Be A Machine (from a "difficult" time when John Foxx wanted to dispense with all emotions, making working on this album and life generally very awkward with his colleagues and friends) and the brilliant My Sex. I saw Foxx live a couple of years ago and he did a superb rendition. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up throughout and I looked around to see a room of blokes my age - mortgages, kids, beer bellies and all - almost weeping at the sheer intensity of the song. An amazing moment.If you want to find out where the long road to Vienna and commercial success started, check this out.
