  • Gary Numan

    English musician Gary Numan first rose to fame in 1979 with the hits “Cars” and “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?” (the latter with his band Tubeway Army). Playing synthesizer-based rock music in a post-punk era, Numan stood out not only for his signature sound—which he achieved by feeding synths through guitar effects pedals—but for his icy, androgynous persona. After releasing the highly regarded and guitar-less new wave album The Pleasure Principle (1980) and its follow-up Telekon (1980), Numan began experimenting with jazz, funk, and atmospheric music. In the ’90s, he ventured into industrial rock. Considered one of the forefathers of synth-pop, Numan has been incredibly influential on artists as diverse as Trent Reznor, Dave Grohl, and hip-hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa. If you can track down one of his original late-’70s picture discs, you’re in for a treat!
