From: Al Crawford Date: Fri, 18 Dec 92 14:46:03 GMT Subject: Ultravox Discography Update Message-Id: <9376.9212181446@hoy.dcs.ed.ac.uk> Organisation: The University Of Edinburgh - Department Of Computer Science Ultravox Discography -------------------- This discography purports to list the releases, personnel etc of the group Ultravox from its inception until its demise. At the moment it has a number of gaps. Any help in filling these will be much appreciated. Areas particularly in need of attention are :- 1) Missing formats 2) Track times 3) Foreign (i.e. non UK) releases. At the moment all catalogue numbers are UK unless otherwise indicated. 4) Trivia (ie what the hell has happened to Chris Cross since the split?) We'd like, if possible, to restrict the discography to material that has at some time been freely available. So while this includes all the normal releases and various limited edition bits'n'pieces it doesn't include promo items and DJ-only remixes (eg Razormaid "White China" set). All mail regarding corrections, additions etc should be sent to :- awrc=uvox@dcs.ed.ac.uk Note the `awrc=uvox' username - this'll allow me to get to mail related to the discography more quickly or at least ensure it doesn't get mixed up with my day to day mail. Alternatively, send mail with just the word Ultravox as the subject line. If you've somehow come across this discography in a printed form and don't have access to electronic mail, drop me a line at... Al Crawford 39 Woodside Drive PENICUIK Midlothian EH26 8BQ SCOTLAND ...enclosing an SAE (and an IRC if you're overseas) if you want a reply. Enjoy the discog!

In 1973 he formed Tiger Lily after placing advertisements in the UK music press. The band personnel were as follows :- John Foxx (b. Dennis Leigh) - vocals. Chris Cross (b. Christopher Allen) - bass. Warren Cann - drums. Steve Shears - guitar. Billy Currie - viola and keyboards. They released only one single, a cover of "Ain't Misbehavin'" which was used as the theme music for a porn movie of the same name. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- March 1975 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ain't Misbehavin' 7" Gull ????

Hiroshima Mon Amour 5:11 This album was released by Island as a posthumous compilation of Ultravox' first three albums. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Section III - Ultravox Mk II -------------------------------------------------------------------------- After the departure of John Foxx to pursue a solo career in 1979 and exhausted by a tour of the US, the group faltered on the verge of disbanding. Robin Simon also left (he later toured with Magazine and worked with Foxx), leaving just three members. Billy Currie, through his work with the studio synth-disco group Visage had become acquainted with James `Midge' Ure, ex-Slik and Rich Kids vocalist. Despite some reservations on the part of the existing members of the band, Ure became the new vocalist. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- June 1980 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sleepwalk 7" Chrysalis CHS 2441 Chrysalis 102129-100 [Ger] A. Sleepwalk 3:12 B. Waiting 3:55 This, the first single by the new-look Ultravox, entered the UK singles chart on 5th July 1980. It remained on the chart for a total of 11 weeks and peaked at number 29. It's not known if a video was produced for this single. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- July 1980 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Vienna CD Chrysalis CCD 1296 Chrysalis VS-41296 [US] Ariola 610011 [Ger] Toshiba CD28-1046 [Jap] LP Chrysalis CHR 1296 Chryalis 202701-320 [Ger] Chrysalis/Toshiba EMI WWS-81355 [Jap] MC Chrysalis 402701-352 [Ger] 1.

All Stood Still 4:23 Chris Cross - Bass synthesizers, vocals Midge Ure - Lead vocals, guitars, synthesizers Warren Cann - Drums, electronics, percussion, vocals Billy Currie - synthesizers, piano, violin, viola Produced by Ultravox and Conny Plank. Recorded at RAK (London). Mixed at Conny's Studio (near Koln). The album entered the UK album chart on 19th July 1980. It remained in the chart for a full 72 weeks and peaked at number 3. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- September 1980 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Passing Strangers 7" Chrysalis CHS 2457 Chrysalis 102508-100 [Ger] 12" Chrysalis CHS 12 2457 7" A. Passing Strangers 3:49 B. Face To Face (Live) 5:58 12" A. Passing Strangers 3:49 B. Face To Face (Live) 5:58 B. The Kings Lead Hat (Live) 3:59 After the success of the previous single, "Passing Strangers" was something of a flop. It entered the UK singles chart on 18th October 1980 but remained on it for only 4 weeks, peaking at number 57. The video for this single is an excellent example of early 80s new romantic video style. It features the group (clad in European grey) menacing (or at least appearing to menace) a couple, he clad in a suit and made up in true new romantic style, she made up and pale. They run around a deserted factory and an urban wasteland and eventually sink up to their necks in quicksand. Whatever. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- January 1981 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Vienna 7" Chrysalis CHS 2481 12" Chrysalis CHS 12 2481 Chrysalis 600352 [Ger] 7" A. Vienna 4:37 B. Passionate Reply 4:29 12" A. Vienna 4:38 B. Passionate Reply 4:20 B. Herr X 5:50 The most successful Ultravox single of them all, "Vienna" entered the UK singles chart on 17th January 1981 and remained there for 14 weeks. It peaked at number 2, being kept from the number 1 slot by Joe Dolce's "Shaddap You Face". Yep, it was kept off the top by a novelty record by a one-hit wonder who has never been heard of since. The track "Herr X" on the 12" is a German language version of Mr X from the album. The video remains one of Ultravox's best, and attempts to portray the grandeur and decadence of 1930s Vienna. Largely shot in Vienna, it's got lots of mist-filled streets, a masqued ball and fits the song perfectly. It must've cost a small fortune to make and remains to this day one of the best music videos I've ever seen. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- March 1981 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Slow Motion EP Island WIP 6691 2*7" Island DWIP 6691 EP A. Slow Motion 3:27 A. Quiet Men 4:12 B. Hiroshima Mon Amour 5:11 2*7" A. Slow Motion 3:27 B. Dislocation ?:?? C. Quiet Men 4:12 D. Hiroshima Mon Amour 5:11 Another posthumous release from Island, this time in an attempt to cash in on the success of Ultravox' second incarnation. It entered the UK charts on 28th March 1981 and remained there for 4 weeks, peaking at number 33. It's not known if Island's raiding of the archives extended to putting together some sort of video for this. This is an Ultravox Mk I release but is placed in this section to maintain chronological consistency. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- May 1981 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- All Stood Still 7" Chrysalis CHS 2522 12" Chrysalis CHS 12 2522 Chrysalis 600386-213 [Ger] 7" A. All Stood Still 5:04 B. Alles Klar 4:56 12" A. All Stood Still 5:04 B. Alles Klar 4:56 B. Keep Torqe-ing 6:21 Note that the extra track on the 12" was mislabelled as "Keep Talking." "All Stood Still" entered the UK singles chart on 6th June 1981. It lasted for 10 weeks and reached number 8. A video does exist for this although it has been omitted from the video of _The Collection_ for some reason. Anyone care to attempt to describe it? -------------------------------------------------------------------------- August 1981 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Thin Wall 7" Chrysalis CHS 2540 Chrysalis 103494-100 [Ger] 12" Chrysalis CHS 12 2540 7" A. The Thin Wall 4:26 B. I Never Wanted To Begin 3:32 12" A. The Thin Wall ?:?? B. I Never Wanted To Begin ?:?? Entering the UK singles chart on 22nd August 1981, "The Thin Wall" remained on the chart for 8 weeks and peaked at number 14. Rather an odd video that exemplifies some of the weird videos that were around at the beginning of the 80s. Highlights include Ure running down a corridor with latex walls through which arms are trying to grab him, Ure drowning in a car filled with water and several swimmers half buried on a beach. At least this one seems to have a theme - insanity. Some nice video technique too. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- September 1981 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rage In Eden LP Chrysalis CDL 1338 Chrysalis CHR 1338 Chrysalis 203958-320 [Ger] Chrysalis/Toshiba EMI WWS-81444 [Jap] MC Chrysalis 403958-352 [Ger] CD Chrysalis CPCD 1338 Chrysalis CCD 1338 Chrysalis VK-41338 [US] Ariola 253958 [Ger] 1. The Voice 6:01 2. We Stand Alone 5:38 3. Rage In Eden 4:12 4. I Remember (Death In The 4:59 Afternoon) 5. The Thin Wall 5:41 6. Stranger Within 7:21 7. Accent On Youth 4:44 8. The Ascent 2:19 9. Your Name (Has Slipped My Mind 4:31 Again) Produced by Ultravox. Co-produced and engineered by Conny Plank. Recorded and mixed at Conny's Studio, Koeln, West Germany. Entered the UK album chart on 19th September 1981. In a 23 week run on the chart it reached a peak position of number 4. There exist two different covers for this album - one is a simple, two-dimensional geometric representation of a `face' in two colours (maroon and gold?), the other (later) cover is a painting of the aforementioned `face' set in a 3 dimensional geometric landscape. The later cover is far more common than the earlier which may only have been used on the initial pressings of the LP and cassette. Anyone know the full details? Later LPs (in the UK at least) and the compact disc feature the second cover. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- October 1981 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Voice 7" Chrysalis CHS 2559 12" Chrysalis CHS 12 2559 7" A. The Voice 5:59 B. Paths And Angles 4:22 12" A. The Voice 5:59 A. Paths And Angles 4:22 B. Private Lives (live) 4:51 B. All Stood Still (live) 4:18 Entered UK singles chart 7th November 1981. Peaked at number 16 during a 12 week stay. The video is one that I personally find a little dull. Various people (Cann as reporter, for example) see a blinding white light (a revelation?) and wander off, eventually meeting together. Also features women in flowing robes waving their arms about. Anyone care to try and explain it in more detail? -------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1981 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- New Europeans LP Chrysalis/Toshiba EMI WWS-81465 [Jap] 1. The Voice 4:24 2. I Never Wanted To Begin 3:31 3. Paths And Angles 4:21 4. Passionate Reply 4:17 5. All Stood Still (live) 4:19 6. Private Lives (live) 4:52 7. Herr X 5:50 8. Alles Klar 4:55 9. Waiting 3:50 10. New Europeans 4:02 Japan only release with cover art almost identical to that of the second version of the _Rage In Eden_ cover. It includes a brief history of the band (in Japanese) and a very dodgy lyric sheet. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1982 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Direct Hits Cass Telstar STAC2226 ?. Reap The Wild Wind ?:?? Compilation. Only the Ultravox track is listed. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- September 1982 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Reap The Wild Wind 7" Chrysalis CHS 2639 12" Chrysalis CHS 12 2639 7" A. Reap The Wild Wind 3:45 B. Hosanna (In Excelsis Deo) 4:20 12" A. Reap The Wild Wind 4:45 B. Hosanna (In Excelsis Deo) 4:16 Entered the UK singles chart on 25th September 1982. Peaked at number 12, 9 weeks on the chart. The "Reap The Wild Wind" video was unusual in accompanying the 12" extended version rather than the 7" version. The video features the group building a monument on a clifftop interspersed with b&w footage of planes. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- October 1982 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Quartet LP Chrysalis CDL 1394 Chrysalis/Toshiba EMI WWS-81355 [Jap] CD Chrysalis CCD 1394 Chrysalis VK-41394 [US] Ariola 610010 [Ger] 1.

The Song (We Go) 3:57 All tracks composed by Ultravox. Produced by George Martin. Engineered by Geoff Emerick. Assisted by Jon Jacobs. Recorded at Air Studios. _Quartet_ entered the UK album charts on the 23rd October 1982. It remained on the charts for 30 weeks and peaked at number 6. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- November 1982 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hymn EP Chrysalis/Toshiba EMI WWS-50137 [Jap] 1. Reap The Wild Wind (Extended ?:?? Version) 2. We Came To Dance (Extended ?:?? Version) 3. Monument 3:16 4. Hymn 5:46 5. The Thin Wall (Live) 5:54 6. Rage In Eden ?:?? Japan-only mini-LP. Further details sought. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hymn 7" Chrysalis CHS 2657 Chrysalis 104934-100 [Ger] 12" Chrysalis CHS 12 2657 7" A. Hymn 4:25 B. Monument 3:17 12" A. Hymn 5:46 B. Monument 3:16 B. The Thin Wall (Live) 5:54 "Hymn" entered the UK singles chart on 27th November 1982. It remained on the chart for 11 weeks and peaked at number 11. The video for "Hymn" was particularly clever and showed Cann (the film fan), Currie (the political activist), Cross (the office junior) and Ure (the struggling musician) being given their hearts desire after signing their souls away to a mysterious figure with glowing eyes. So Cann becomes a film star, Currie becomes a major political figure, Cross becomes head of a major company and Ure becomes a pop star. Then the satanic figure comes to collect his side of the bargain... The moral? Never trust anyone with glowing eyes. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- March 1983 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Visions In Blue 7" Chrysalis CHS 2676 12" Chrysalis CHS 12 2676 7" A. Visions In Blue ?:?? B. Break Your Back ?:?? 12" A. Visions In Blue ?:?? B. Break Your Back ?:?? B. Reap The Wild Wind (Live) ?:?? "Visions In Blue" charted on 19th March 1983. It remained on the chart for 6 weeks and peaked at number 15. "Shock. Horror. Ultravox in porno video scandal!" Well, not exactly, but I'd wager this video was never shown on Top Of The Pops. Soft focus shots of a nude woman being washed, plus a dance sequence with two female dancers (one dressed as a man) and breasts popping out of clothing all over the place. Arty rather than sleazy though. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- May 1983 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- We Came To Dance 7" Chrysalis VOX 1 7" [P] Chrysalis VOXP 1 12" Chrysalis VOXX 1 7" A. We Came To Dance 4:07 B. Overlook 4:00 7" A. We Came To Dance 4:10 B. Break Your Back 3:26 12" A. We Came To Dance (Extended 7:58 Version) B. Overlook 4:00 Note that some copies of the 7" had a different B-side ("Break Your Back" in place of "Overlook"). "We Came To Dance" entered the UK singles chart on the 4th June 1983. It remained on the chart for 7 weeks and reached a peak position of number 18. The video had a Chinese theme and alternated between shots of the group in a set hung with Chinese revolutionary art and a story about forbidden love in revolutionary China in which the two young lovers solve their quandary by leaping off a cliff together. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Monument - The Soundtrack LP Chrysalis UCX 1452 Chrysalis 205849-270 [Ger] Chrysalis 205849-AE210 [Fra] MC Chrysalis 405849-300 [Ger] Chrysalis 405849-AE410 [Fra] CD Chrysalis CCD 1452 Ariola 255849 [Ger] VHS Chrysalis CV1M 10 1. Monument 3:15 2. Reap The Wild Wind 4:10 3. The Voice 6:52 4. Vienna 5:22 5. Mine For Life 4:38 6. Hymn 5:37 Concert sound production by John Hudson. All tracks recorded live at Hammersmith Odeon, December 1982. Entered the UK album chart on the 22nd October 1983. It reached a peak position of number 9 and remained on the chart for 15 weeks. _Monument_ was a live album/video of the December 1982 concert at the Hammersmith Odeon. Despite the credits above (taken from the sleeve notes), "Monument" appears to be the studio version used as the B-side of the "Hymn" single. It doesn't feature in the concert itself but is used as backing music during an introduction on the video that describes the design of the stage sets and the recording of _Quartet_. The video itself isn't outstanding. Aside from its shortness, it spoils the concert feel by interspersing shots from the videos for most songs with the live footage. The one highspot surrounds the extended version of "The Voice", with the Warren Cann drum solo from "The Song (We Go)" spliced onto the end and the rest of the band each playing a single electronic drum pad. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1984 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now This Is Music LP ADEH 162 [Neth] MC ADEHC 162 [Neth] ?.

Remained on the chart for 6 weeks and peaked at number 27. The video was the debut of the new Ultravox "Scottish fishermen" look, with Ure sporting designer stubble and a woolly hat, Cann sporting designer stubble and Chris Cross looking like something the cat dragged in. The video features the group leaping about and playing their instruments amongst some standing stones, interspersed with brief glimpses of their older videos. How did they plug everything in? -------------------------------------------------------------------------- March 1984 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dancing With Tears In My Eyes 7" [C] Chrysalis UV 1 12" Chrysalis UVX 1 Chrysalis 601322-213 [Ger] Chrysalis 601322-AE180 [Fra] Chrysalis CS-42783 [Can] 7" A.

It re-entered the chart for a single week at number 74 in the week beginning 4th August 1984. The video centres around an accident at a nuclear power plant. Security guard Warren Cann and scientist Chris Cross are sitting around dozing when alarms etc go off. Ordinary bloke Ure is driving home when he hears the news and fights to get home to family in the ensuing chaos (in which priest Currie is doing his bit to help out). Ure gets home, tucks in the kiddies and gets physical with Mrs Ure until they are blown to bits by the nuclear explosion. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Lament LP Chrysalis CDL 1459 Chrysalis 206175-620 [Ger] Chrysalis 206175-AE660 [Fra] MC Chrysalis 406175-652 [Ger] Chrysalis 406175-AE560 [Fra] CD Chrysalis CCD 1459 Chrysalis VK-41459 [US] Ariola 610151 [Ger] Toshiba CP35-3139 [Jap] LP 1.

Remained in the charts for 6 weeks and peaked at number 22. Re-entered the chart for 1 week at number 73 on 25th August 1984. The video continued the Scottish theme begun with "One Small Day". The band head off to a wee Scottish island and proceed to get off with the local ladies. Time comes for them to leave and many tears are shed etc but Ure changes his mind and stays behind with his bonnie highland lassie. Awwww, isn't that nice? -------------------------------------------------------------------------- September 1984 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Heart Of The Country 7" Chrysalis ?

Man Of Two World's (Instr) 4:31 Entered the UK singles chart on the 20th October 1984. Peaked at number 12 in a chart run lasting 9 weeks. The video for "Love's Great Adventure" is one of the best they ever did. Ure waiting for girlfriend (is this the same person as Ure's wife in the "Dancing With Tears In My Eyes" video?) starts daydreaming. The ensuing daydream features a pause for Ure to get his breath back, Warren Cann as another explorer, Currie as a priest and Cross as some sort of jungle wild man. An entertaining video in which Ure gets the girl and everyone lives happily ever after. An adventure film condensed into three minutes. "White China (Live)" recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon in June, 1984. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Collection LP Chrysalis UTVD1 Chrysalis 206584-620 [Ger] Chrysalis 206584-AE280 [Fra] Chrysalis FV-41490 [US] MC Chrysalis 406584-652 [Ger] Chrysalis 406584-AE480 [Fra] CD Chrysalis CCD 1490 Chrysalis VK-41490 [US] Ariola 610390 [Ger] Toshiba CP32-5359 [Jap] VHS Chrysalis CV1M 14 LP, CD 1.

Exactly what these pressures were isn't too clear (I've yet to see an interview say exactly what the problem was) but it seems to be the case that Cann didn't like the direction the group was taking (more or less turning into Midge Ure's backing band) and there were also differences over the musical direction of the band. After the departure of Cann, no regular drummer was found although Mark Brzezicki (of Big Country) more or less filled this role on _U-Vox_.

Although the band never officially disbanded, it became clear as time went by that they were not going to reform. Billy Currie put together a new group called U-Vox consisting of himself, early Ultravox guitarist Robin Simon and a vocalist (name unknown) but was forced by fan pressure to stop using the name, and the group changed its name to Humania before disbanding. However, in 1992, Currie acquired the rights to the name Ultravox and put together a new Ultravox, consisting of himself and vocalist/guitarist Tony Fenelle. At the time of writing one single has been released and an album is in the pipeline. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- April 1992 --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Vienna 92 12" ZYX 6767-12 [Ger] CD5 ZYX 6767-8 [Ger] 12" A.

This more or less restricts it to releases involving two or more members of the group. Strictly speaking Visage should fall into this category but, due to the number of Visage releases, there is a separate Visage section. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1981? -------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Bloodied Sword LP Chrysalis ???

Visage arose from the wreckage of the late 70s `supergroup' The Rich Kids. This group, which both Ure and Egan had been members of, disbanded leaving Ure with several hours of unused studio time. This he donated to Steve Strange, who was looking to record some `futuristic disco' for his Blitz club. The studio group they put together became Visage and the track recorded in that session was a cover of Zager and Evans' In The Year 2525. Again, lots of gaps, help filling them would be appreciated. Personnel at various times included :- Steve Strange Midge Ure Billy Currie Dave Formula Rusty Egan Barry Adamson S.
