From Tony Hadley's siren-call in Gold, to Nik Kershaw's minor-chord dread on Wouldn't It Be Good, there was often a tone of alarm in their chart-topping cries, and Midge Ure's fearful vocal bombast in Ultravox was no exception. It might have reflected a holler-fuelled punk hangover, but it's no great leap to imagine that it also captured Cold War terror, and this sense of disquiet echoed throughout Ultravox's (over)earnest canon, and underscored this show by the re-formed "classic" line-up of Ure, Chris Cross (bass, keyboards), Billy Currie (keyboards, viola) and drummer Warren Cann.
