Strange Bedfellows: John Foxx and… Lionel Richie – Together As They Never Were!

This is just too wild, so I have to tell you about this today. I’ve been collecting John Foxx records for 32 years now. I have never, and I mean, never, come across a record as paradoxical as this. This is a Virgin Japanese promo 12″ from 1983. Here is the A-side of the sleeve:

Virgin | JPN Promo | 12″ | 1983 | LWG-1239

And here is the B-Side:

Virgin | JPN Promo | 12″ | 1983 | LWG-1239

Here are the labels of the record which dares to unite the vastly disparate philosophies represented by these two recording artists on a single artifact.

Needless to say this is not yet in the Record Cell, but one day, hopefully, it will be. This is the sort of record you sprinkle Holy Water on while keeping a sharp eye out for freakish mutations cropping up in the local ecosystem. Also, plagues of locusts.

    Whew!! Good thing it remained an obscure Japanese promo. Looks like the world narrowly averted a disaster of biblical proportions. Old testament, real wrath of God type stuff…

    So wrong but so right to own!


    • Echorich – This record crosses the “so wrong it’s right” line with impunity! Besides, truth in labeling laws compel me to reveal that I already have one Lionel Richie record in the Record Cell! I do have a 45 of “Brick House” by The Commodores!
