Those of you who listen to our Sonic TALK podcast will know that I recently went to see John Foxx and The Maths  live in Bristol, where Tara Bush was supporting. Frankly, I was blown away and immediately went out and bought his latest release - Interplay.

The thing that really hit me, was the power and purity of the sound and the songs. With Benge (aka Ben Edwards, musical collaborator on Interplay) playing a Simmons SDS V analog drum kit, the sounds were MASSIVE and really made me rethink my opinions of electronic music played live. I became rather evangelical.

Fast forward to London and the first of two gigs at XOYO further into the UK leg of the tour.
We were able to grab a few precious minutes during the sound check with Benge, who gave us a look at some of the gear used to recreate Interplay live, as well as some earlier tunes from the Foxx catalog.

Stay tuned  for a pre-show interview with John  Foxx, Benge and Tara Bush.
