Underpass
John Foxx Lyrics


Standing in the dark
Watching you glow
Lifting a receiver
Nobody I know

Underpass
Underpass

Well I used to remember
Now it's all gone...
World War something...
We were somebody's sons

Underpass
Underpass

Over all the bridges
Echoes in rows
Talking at the same time
Click-click drone...

Underpass
Underpass

Misty on the glass now
Rusty on the door
Here for years now

Click-click drone
Click-click drone
Click-click drone
Click-click drone
Click-click...

Underpass
Underpass
Underpass
Underpass

Underpass
Underpass
Underpass
Underpass

I didnโ€™t realise this song is forty years old. It still sounds brilliant. Way ahead of its time.

This video, more than anything I have seen or heard since its time, has impressed upon me the fact that in the 1970s and early 1980s we were still in the UK living in a "post-war" environment. The bleak scenery, sterile and already wearing 50s and 60s architecture. The grayness is overpowering. The song and the vid capture the essence of these surroundings perfectly. It was a truly analog life - simple and bland. No web, no smartphones, no satellite TV. We should have been bored, but we weren't.

@reuireuiop0 funny you mentioned climate change, the IPCC just named it 'code red for humanity', communism, which is Judaism, 2.0.

Still living in the shadows of two world wars, the threat of an attack from the East was very real (as we only heard decades later, one heroic Soviet colonel declined his instructions by Not launching a nuclear counter attack after the Russian detection system falsely signalled America launching missiles)

The cold-but-not-so-cold war (Hungary 56, Prague 68, Vietnam, Korea, Afghanistan, series of coups d etat in Latin America, Greece, 50s Iraq Iran) lasted right up to 1989 1991 when USSR finally fell and the great catastrophy started in 1914 was over. That stark black & white didn't come out of nowhere, the general pressing feeling was much tougher than the climate change fears of today.

The post war/cold War period gave birth also to the krautrock scene, which while not as stark in its expression, and creativity, it had the same driver of finding ways to express frustration, of being kept from true joy, via music and music gatherings. Obviously accumulating into video and then the interwobble.

Just come upon your comment. This electronic music can often lack a human quality, however that is a too easier fit. Austrity can be romantic from a distance especially mixed with nostalgia.. I like you lust for a spartan stark music environ...hope you agree.. one day..
