Thin Wall

One of my all-time favorite bands, Ultravox, with a fine specimen of early-1980s New Wave:

I thought I was just about the only human being in this country that even knew who Ultravox is/was!!!

I have a bunch of their music loaded on my iPod. When I play it my kids look at me like I have gone nuts....... but I adore them anyway.

I just did a search on YouTube and found the Vienna video. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_X1fw1cE6eY&search=ultravox) If only I had this in 1981 I never would have watched MTV.

I can't believe this, but YouTube has Hiroshima Mon Amour! (not a "video" per se, but a Live performance, but still!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuaj66KQ9HY&search=ultravox

I just watched Reap the Wild Wind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nW3IokMijTw&search=ultravox)Can you believe that?

You just totally made my day!! This has brought a lot of happy memories back to me and a nice smile on my face (right before I go yell at my kids to go to bed).

Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!

So glad you enjoyed it! I have tons of obscure Ultravox stuff from the John Foxx era on vinyl. I'll try to post some album covers and maybe some mp3 samples in the near future.

Thanks for commenting.
