Gary Numan

Few artists can lay claim to the titles of 'legendary' and 'pioneering', but as the NME argued recently, 'Gary Numan's influence on electronic music is unparalleled.' His signature style can be heard in everything from bands such as Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins, Basement Jaxx, Sugababes, Wu Tang Clan and Afrika Bambaata. It's also no coincidence that all of these artists have chosen to cover or sample his songs.

He has also been widely recognised as influential in recent years by artists such as Queens of the Stone Age, Beck, Tricky, Damon Albarn and David Bowie, but Numan's influence is far reaching, having inspired a wide range of musical genres from hip hop to techno.

Now past his 30th year as a recording artist and having amassed millions of record sales, including 2 number one singles 'Are Friends Electric?' and 'Cars' and 3 number one albums 'Replicas', 'The Pleasure Principle' and 'Telekon', 2008 saw Numan successfully complete a sold out 15 date 'Replicas' UK Tour and perform to thousands at various shows and festivals around the UK including Bestival, Wicker Man and The Mighty Boosh Festival, where he has become an instantly recognisable cult figure to a whole new generation on the Boosh TV series.

In 2008, he released a double CD remix album 'Jagged Edge', based around 2006's critically acclaimed 'Jagged', co-produced with Ade Fenton.

As Kerrang! magazine recently wrote, 'Gary Numan is vital as ever...the Godfather is back and he's here to stay.'

'Powerful electronic rock . . . a dense, moody collection, it can be thunderous one moment and ethereal the next, forbidding and mysterious, grinding and soaring.'
Classic Rock

'Jagged is aggressive and dark, yet doesn't forget to pack the tunes too.'
Record Collector

'The beats are fresh, the incidental effects impact nicely and there's more energy here than there should be from someone who has been through the music industry mill for the last quarter of a century plus.'
Future Music
