    Got to read me some J.G. Ballard if his writings were such an inspiration for Metamatic. Love it when different forms of art collide! (Good looking guy back in the day too, Dennis Leigh)

    I just got his 3 Cathedral Oceans albums - very beautiful, ambient music. Very different from his 80's stuff, much more similar to his collaborations with Robin Guthrie and Harold Budd.

    When it comes to Ultravox, I generally prefer Midge Ure's version of the band, but as solo artists John Foxx is definitely superior in my mind. Just great stuff all around, Metamatic in particular is a fantastic album.
