Notes

Metal Beat contains 2 hours of material including an in-depth interview with John Foxx about the "Metamatic" album and some previously unheard demos and studio experiments which give a unique insight into the 1979/80 sessions.

CD1 - The interview includes extracts from the demos of "No-One Driving" and "Touch And Go" along with some early John Foxx experiments with drum machines and analogue synthesizers.

CD2 - The interview includes extracts from a demo of "Like A Miracle" and an extended version of "Plaza" (sic - it is actually shorter than the album version) alongside some tracks retrieved from two 1980 tapes marked "Music For Film" and "Instrumentals". It also features a 30 second piece entitled "Jane".
