The Wild, The Beautiful And The Damned by Ultravox

This is an Island promo video for Ultravox‘s The Wild, The Beautiful and The Damned. This song appears on their debut album, Ultravox! (co-produced by Steve Lillywhite and Brian Eno), which was a staple of my college years. Don’t be fooled by imitations, though. The original Ultravox was headed by John Foxx and their sound was a bridge between the punk and the new wave movements. After Foxx left, the band was headed up by Midge Ure, who transformed the group into an electronic pop band and found commercial success at the expense of quality. Found at YouTube from deadman2005.
