Ultravox! Live At Reading, August 27, 1977

Hello, Mutants of the mud!

A quick update for all you enjoying the Faith Global post. Here's Ultravox!, with the exclamation point intact, playing before the sodden crowd at the Reading Festival on August 27, 1977. The sound quality is better than most from this period, and it offers a rare snap shot of the Foxx-era line up at about the time of Ha! Ha! Ha!. Shears' guitar stands out from the get-go, and the band really hits its groove with a blistering take of "Young Savage."

Stay tuned next week for a new post, of particular interest to fans of New Order, the Associates, and Martha and the Muffins--you remember "Echo Beach," don't you?
