John Foxx and the Belbury Circle – Empty Avenues and Dark Corners (2014)

Scroll down to content

John Foxx’s latest collaboration is such an uncanny fit that, in a way, it feels strange it hasn’t happened sooner. His new six-track EP Empty Avenues, released as John Foxx And The Belbury Circle, teams him up with Jim Jupp and Jon Brooks – co-owner and recording artist for the English record label Ghost Box respectively. Recording independently as Belbury Poly and The Advisory Circle, Jupp and Brooks have become known for a dreamily nostalgic, faintly eldritch sound influenced by library music and the public information films of the 1970s and 80s – a sensibility which shares much with Foxx’s own songs of quiet, suited Englishmen adrift in time and space.
