Gary Numan/Tubeway Army

After a couple lineup shuffles, Tubeway Army -- Gary Numan (aka Valeriun), Paul Gardiner (aka Scarlett), and Numan's uncle Jess Lidyard (aka Rael) -- debuted in February of 1978 with "That's Too Bad" on Beggars Banquet, a furious fusion of punk and pop, but darkly cold and clinical. During a studio session a few months later, Numan began fiddling with a mini-Moog synthesizer that remained from another band's recording stint. Instantly falling in love with the instrument's capabilities, he decided that he would use synths to achieve the sounds he heard in his imagination. Though he fought the temptation to associate synths with prog rock, he felt they would help distance the band from the limitations and clichés of punk. Numan and his mates were influenced by Bowie and T. Rex as much as J.G. Ballard and William S. Burroughs (as well as being inspired later on by contemporaries Ultravox and the Human League), so the band's extraction from punk wasn't surprising at all.

After releasing their stellar eponymous record later in 1978, Tubeway Army cut a session for BBC's John Peel. Two more singles followed early in 1979, garnering the band further chart success and increased exposure, especially for Numan. The band's second LP, Replicas, was released in June. Since Tubeway Army had increasingly become the sole vision of Numan, this moniker was abandoned, and Replicas was the last release to feature the name. Lidyard, who had pretty much been involved out of necessity, removed himself from the scene, and Gardiner continued for a while with Numan, also lending duties with his live band. "Cars," the first release as Gary Numan (only two months after Replicas), was an instant hit and became one of the songs most synonymous with the '80s. Numan continued on his own, establishing himself as a prolific cult artist (with a rabid following) throughout the next decades, and become one of the most important figures in the history of electronic pop. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi

Are friends eletrict? I don't know
genius! nothing more needs to said.
Being in my young 20's back in the 80's, what a great time! The music was amazing, and creative, and fresh. We were young and on top of the world.
If you want to find all of Gary Numan's newer stuff try searching for just (Gary Numan).
Where are the newer tracks? The man is still busy redefining music.

Amazing live!!!....a n d how can you not like an artist who donates to the ASPCA...:)

He hooked me on Cars, and I've followed him ever since. Seen him twice in concert--ver y powerful. The range, from the early stuff to New Anger to Pure, is engrossing.
Loved his Tubeway Army stuff. I also think I, Assassin was a rock solid album. White Boys and Heroes is fantastic

We need more variety, folks! He's made 20 albums and we get 1 to listen to? Gary Numan is one of the best live performers that I have ever seen. I've driven around 3 states to see all of his shows when he's in the states.
lets hear some album tracks! they need to add more albums, not just the greatest hits album.
so far, not a bad song in the bunch from this "hits" album. simply synth nirvana. and nobody has a voice quite like gary numan's. :D
So good!+So good!+So good!
BRILLIANT OUTCOME from the Nu man + Tubeway Army!!
