Vocalist, musician, photographer and graphic artist best known as former lead singer for Ultravox (initially written 'Ultravox!'). He left the band in 1979 for a solo career. He withdrew from music in 1985 and concentrated on visual work. In 1990, inspired by acid house, Foxx briefly returned as Nation 12, a collaboration with Tim Simenon of Bomb The Bass (and later with the late Shem McCauley/Streets Ahead). Foxx then fell silent again until 1997, when a chance meeting with Louis Gordon led to a batch of albums by the duo (1997–2008) and a new phase of Foxx's solo career.
