Gary Numan

Bürgerl. Name:
Gary Anthony James Webb
Profil:
Born 8th of March 1958 in Hammersmith, London, England.

Started his musical career in 1977 as a punk rocker in the band Mean Street, before being sacked in May 1977 for being "too creative." He responded to an advert in Melody Maker to join the band The Lasers, alongside Paul Gardiner. Both soon left to form their own punk band, Tubeway Army, with his uncle Jess Lidyard filling in on drums.

In 1978 Tubeway Army was signed to Beggars Banquet and released a couple of punk singles. By then he was using the name Numan and the band was performing live in pubs and clubs around London, supporting The Lurkers. Whilst recording demos for Beggars, Gary stumbled upon a "Minimoog," that had been left behind in the studio, still programmed to a sound that caught his attention. The rest, as they say, is history. Gary Numan is considered one of the foremost pioneers in electronic dance music.

Interesting how you can break down Numan's carrier into neat "threes" of phases he was going through of copying other people. 1979-1980 is his Ultravox trilogy (the best one), from 1981 to 1983 he was copying Japan, 1984 to 1986 is his "Trevor Horn's production techniques" phase, 1988 to 1992 he was going after the Prince technofunk sound. I have no interest in anything he does since 1994, but it's interesting how he broke the aforementioned rule and copies Nine Inch Nails up until now (about 10 albums or so, can't be bothered to count). It's probably due to the company he keeps (or which keeps him, more like), whereas before he was parting with people easily and that most likely influenced his drift to another source of "inspiration".

there are many Numan albums on here, some of which are not very good live recordings, compilations and dodgy proper albums .... however, the good stuff is superb, from Tubeway Army to Intruder, the music is top class ... Numan is a genius, he was back in the 70s and he still is ... ignore the rubbish written about him being a 'has been' .... The Man is back at the top of his game :-)

Like Paul Mccartney, if someone told me that the REAL Gary Numan died in the mid-eighties I would instant believe it! .. Maybee it was because of Tubeway´s Army´s bass player Paul Gardiner (Who Sadly died in 1984). Someone told me that he was the real genius behind these GREAT songs. As you can see, not many good songs/tracks came from Numan after the departure of Gardiner. Last album he did with Numan was Assassin, I . .Which was the last GOOD album by Numan..

So many albums, but Numan has basically only put out 5 new studio albums in the last 20 years: Sacrifice (1994), Exile (1997), Pure (2000), Jagged (2006), and Dead Son Rising (2012).
