Random, Vol. 1: A Gary Numan Tribute

 
Gary Numan is known for robotic, stylized singing, primitive electronics, pre-"new romantic" sound, and his songwriting ability. With this two-CD collection of Numan interpretations, you can hear how good his songs were, absent of own idiosyncratic delivery. The known and the unknown join to make proto-dance music out of the mechanical master's material.

Overview

Gary Numan is known for robotic, stylized singing, primitive electronics, pre-"new romantic" sound, and his songwriting ability. With this two-CD collection of Numan interpretations, you can hear how good his songs were, absent of own idiosyncratic delivery. The known and the unknown join to make proto-dance music out of the mechanical master's material. Matt Sharp (Weezer) and Damon Albarn (Blur) cover "We Have a Technical." Also here are Gravity Kills, EMF, the Magnetic Fields, Jesus Jones, the out-of-place hip-hop group Underdog, Sukia, the Orb, and Pop Will Eat Itself. A standout is "Metal" by Towering Inferno. Brian Eno described their Kaddish album as "frightening," and they are here joined by Eddi Reader. There are also two versions of "Are 'Friends' Electric?": techno rockers Republica are joined by Numan himself for one version, while Belgian discovery An Pierle offers another.
