Does anyone have a copy of this Ultravox spin-off project issued in 1983?

I have it somewhere, will have a look (only mp3 though). Meanwhile - here's the "Bloodied Sword Theme" that I've done quite some time ago (back in 2012 actually), trying to cafefully edit the musical bits out of that mess :D

Prepare for shock - it's not what most people can expect from members of Ultravox!

I was more in shock to learn that Chris Cross is into house. I am familiair with this kind of albums. Like f.e. the album The Lady Or The Tiger? of Toyah and Robert Fripp.

i have it somewhere too.

i'ts very boring.
it's just spoken word over some musical themes.

there's hardly anything thats ultravox like at all.

it's an experimental recording.

Well, John Foxx is too - somehow he sees it as a continuation of a hard electronic sound of "Metamatic" and the like. He has a broad imagination for sure! Also, Kenny Hyslop, who's credited with percussion on this album, was a DJ in the 1990s. The one who strongly opposed to house and other inventions was Midge Ure himself, who even didn't want dance remixes of his songs released.

By the way, here's long-promised Bloodied Sword - enjoy if you can :D
