Billy Currie of Ultravox's ARP Odyssey Sells for £8,500.00


via this auction

"This is the one Billy bought in 1977. He used it back in 2012 on the Ultravox "Brilliant" album so it is in good working order.
He used it on all the Ultravox gigs and recordings and the Visage recordings. He used his softer signature sound on Visage "Fade To Grey" and Ultravox "Vienna".
He also used this ARP while working with Tubeway Army/Gary Numan. Live and the recordings "Living Ornaments 79 ". Most notably using his strong, emotional signature sound for the " On Broadway " solo. It was used on the "Top of the Pops" theme when he played on Phil Lynotts solo album. This time with the ARP sequencer as well. A remixed instrumental version of the song " Yellow Pearl ".
This instrument has been heard very much! It is a part of music's Synthesiser History
It's the MK 2 version. The raunchy version!

Ultravox solos include :-

Man Who Dies Every Day
Artificial Life
Slow Motion
Quiet Man
Sleepwalk
The Thin Wall
Hymn
When the Scream Subsides"
