John Foxx ‎– Metamatic (1980)

Metamatic is the debut solo album by former Ultravox frontman John Foxx, released in 1980 on his trademark Virgin-subsidiary Metal Beat. Musically, the album expands on the electro-luminosity that he pioneered with the band on “My Sex” — a style popularized in the interim by protege Gary Numan on the albums The Pleasure Principle and Telekon.
