Gary Numan to perform 1979’s, Replicas, in it’s entirety, at the Teragram Ballroom in LA, on September 29th

“There are still people trying to work out what a genius Gary Numan is.” – Prince

In addition to Replicas, Numan will be performing The Pleasure Principle on the 30th, and Telekon on October 1st. No Tubeway Army debut, unfortunately.

No offense to the two great subsequent albums, but Replicas is Numan’s masterpiece. Down In The Park is visionary Sci-Fi as music, and I’m always happy to have a reason to post it. Also, having watched recent performances, he still sounds and looks great, so I would have high hopes for this.

  1. I forgot how much I liked Gary Numan’s music at that time. This track is so zen simple yet deep and powerful. I was doing radio at the time and had the opportunity to drive him and his label’s promo man, the late Paul Yeskel (hmlself a very cool guy), to their gig at the old Capitol Theater in Passaic, NJ. Numan was a really good guy, sharp, inquisitive and a thoughtful person. I was impressed. Still am. Thanks for posting the link – it’s a very good way to spend six minutes!

    • To this day, he seems top of his game. Glad to see him getting so much love from collaborations and covers, though I had never seen that particular Prince quote, prior to the day of posting. I’ll eagerly await youtube footage from the shows.
