An Evening With... Gary Numan

2 hours
First broadcast:
Saturday 19 October 2013

Nemone plays a whole heap of tunes that feature brilliant electronic bleeps, beats and breaks - both old and new.

Electronic music pioneer, Gary Numan, is back with his 20th studio album 'Splinter (songs From A Broken Mind)', and shares a trio of tunes in An Evening With. Gary picks a tune to soundtrack getting ready for a night out, one for the dancefloor (or in his case, for a night in with his wife), and a tune to end the night on.

The singer, composer, and musician, is most widely known for his chart-topping 1979 hits 'Are Friends Electric?' and 'Cars'. His signature sound consists of heavy synthesiser hooks fed through guitar effects pedals, a sound that resonates through today's electronic dance music.
