Gary Numan

Biography

At the end of the '70s Gary Numan, a 20-year old ex-punk from west London was virtually alone in seeing the possibility of a "synthesiser star." In late 1978 Beggars Banquet released Tubeway Army's self-titled debut, mixing electronics with post-punk guitar and solid, no frills drumming by Gary's uncle Jess Lidyard. He immediately created a fresh, garage-electronic style but by the time the album came out he was already back in the studio.
