Σαν σήμερα, 8 Μαρτίου 1958, ο Gary Anthony James Webb, γνωστός ως Gary Numan, γεννήθηκε στο Λονδίνο. Εντυπωσιακά επιτυχημένος στα late ’70s με ένα συνδυασμό μινιμαλιστικής ηλεκτρονικής ποπ και στίχων αναφερόμενων σε δυστοπικά sci-fi περιβάλλοντα, πέρασε σε underground status από τα early ’80s, διατηρώντας σταθερά ένα φανατικό κοινό μέχρι και σήμερα. Παρακολουθούμε τη συμμετοχή του στην μουσική ταινία Urgh, A Music War του 1982: “Down In The Park”, τραγούδι από το “κλασικό” Replicas του 1979. Ένα ακόμα τραγούδι απ΄το Replicas, το αριστούργημα του GN “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?”. Και τέλος το “Tracks”, από το τελευταίο του επιτυχημένο άλμπουμ, The Pleasure Principle [1979]

On this date, March 8, 1958, Gary Anthony James Webb, known as Gary Numan, was born in London. Hugely successful in the late ’70s with a combination of minimalist electronic pop and lyrics referring to a dystopian sci-fi environment, he went underground from the early ’80s on, steadily maintaining cult status to this day. We watch his participation in the music film Urgh, A Music War of 1982: “Down In The Park” is a song from the “classic” Replicas of 1979. Another song from Replicas, GN’s masterpiece “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?”. And finally, “Tracks,” from his last successful album, The Pleasure Principle [1979]

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
