Video - Thomas Dolby Interviewed About A Map Of The Floating City In Toronto

Thomas Dolby, once synonymous with the wave of synth-pop during the eighties alongside Howard Jones and Gary Numan, returned to the world of recording artists with last year's A Map Of The Floating City. In this video he talks to reporters about his impending concert at Virgin Media Mod Club in Toronto before shaking hands and being escorted away by members of his entourage.

Whilst his dress sense may seem to have retained the same eighties eccentricity of contemporary artist of the period his musical direction incorporates decidedly modern techniques. This is particularly true considering that A Map Of The Floating City came accompanied by a World Of Warcraft style game in which players trade items including merchandise and music downloads
