Gary Numan - I Die You Die (1980). I was 11 in 1980 and I can’t over emphasise the impact Gary Numan had on me. My older brother was 22 and a major Tubeway Army fan, so I’d been exposed to Gary’s musical style before. This clever combo of a shy guitarist + Moog + futuristic androgynous image exploded onto the music scene. At the time, the music was so sparse to what people were used to and I believe his live performance blew people’s minds. This was the future. All of a sudden, EVERYONE had a synth in their bands. Therein lies the power of Numan.
