Ultravox – ‘Herr X’ / ‘Alles Klar’ | Sold Out


Out of stock

SKU: ES69V Categories: ,


We are celebrating the 40th anniversary of ULTRAVOX’s classic ‘Vienna’ album in the next Electronic Sound and we’ve interviewed all four members of the band – Midge Ure, Billy Currie, Chris Cross and Warren Cann – to get the full inside story. From the split with John Foxx (“We were at each other’s throats for a long time”) to working with Conny Plank at his remote studio in Germany (“There was nothing around us except cows”) to becoming one of the most successful electronic pop groups of all time, this really is a great read.

We have a superb Ultravox seven-inch to accompany this month’s issue as well, a limited edition clear vinyl release that brings together ‘Herr X’ and ‘Alles Klar’, two non-album tracks from the ‘Vienna’ sessions. ‘Herr X’, the German version of ‘Mr X’, first appeared on the ‘Vienna’ 12-inch, while ‘Alles Klar’ was the B-side of the ‘All Stood Still’ single. “We loved B-sides in Ultravox,” notes Chris Cross. “We never wanted to put out anything that was throwaway, but we’d always try something completely different.”

As with all of our seven-inch releases, this record is strictly limited and exclusive to readers of Electronic Sound, so make sure you grab your copy while you can.
