Ultravox have today’s almost forgotten track

Ultravox, in their original lineup behind vocalist John Foxx, were cutting edge electronica, but when things didn’t result in positive results internationally, they took advantage of the availability of Midge Ure and began to merge their electronics with great pop, resulting in this, their biggest and greatest hit…Ure maintained a parallel career as a solo artist, and wrote with some interesting people including Bob Geldof on a song we all know called Do They Know It’s Christmas…

 

Greg Simpson

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
