NEW RELEASE : The Quiet Man - John Foxx

You can now pre-order John Foxx - The Quiet Man from Townsend Records.
It is due for release on the 27th July.

"This spoken word album runs for just under an hour and features Justin Barton's voiceover on five Quiet Man stories written by John Foxx. The CD also includes new piano music written and performed by Foxx especially for this release, along with a 16 page booklet of new B&W images by the artist.

'The origins of the novel are firmly cinematic,' states Foxx of his ongoing Quiet Man project. 'I found an old grey suit in a charity shop in the 1970s. Over the years, I got some friends to wear the suit in various locations in London. I filmed them just walking or sitting in cafes or apartments. As I did this, The Quiet Man story began to emerge. It's about London becoming overgrown, about the suit being alive somehow, and the way cities can alter us – and our memories.'"

John Foxx will be making an appearance at the Apple Store, Regent Street, London on Friday the 24th July at 5pm BST, John will read extracts from The Quiet Man with an introduction by Mark Gatiss from the League Of Gentlemen. It is a free event.

You can also read more Quiet Man stories such as Astronaut and The Unfinished Boy and buy Quiet Man art prints on
