Distant Smile - Ultravox!* - Ha!-Ha!-Ha! (Vinyl, LP, Album)

 ·  · As you say, very different from the band they became with Midge Ure at the helm but the punk attitude mixed with Foxx’s burgeoning love of electronics is an irresistible combination. The synths and textures begin to dominate by Systems Of Romance but with second album Ha Ha Ha the band have really hit their stride.

 · With original singer John Foxx leading the band across the bridge that connected punk with new wave, Ultravox created a classic of the era with this LP. Steve Lillywhite produced the band’s second LP: the thumping "ROckWrok" and the mesmerizing "Hiroshima Mon Amour" plus "The Frozen Ones," "Distant Smile" and more.

    Ultravox - Ha! Ha! Ha! (Grey Vinyl) - Music "Distant Smile" opens with a down-tempo lugubrious piano solo over a gentle electronic wash of wooing noises and pings [so far this wouldn't be out of place on Classic FM, it's very new age, very Einaudi] but then, almost as though it's a different song, it breaks into a catchy punk /5(96).

     ·  · Ha! Ha!' (`RockWrok') always makes me laugh - and the inclusion of the lyrics in the sleevenotes on this remastered edition finally puts paid to my belief that Foxx actually sings "KY'ed and willing", when it's actually "Wet, wild and willing"! This second album by Ultravox was released barely six months after their first/5(95).
