In a Foreign Town is an album by the English singer-songwriter Peter Hammill. It was originally released in 1988 on Enigma Records, and was subsequently reissued on Hammill's own Fie! label.
The album has not proved popular with some of Hammill's fans, due largely to the rather dated 1980s rhythm tracks and production. However, others value it highly because it is one of Hammill's most politically engaged albums, covering such topics as apartheid ("Sun City Nightlife"), big business ("Sci-Finance Revisited" - a reworking of "Sci-Finance", the Van der Graaf song from Vital) and global politics ("Hemlock").
