“Gary Numan Revisited” is a brand new vinyl release (available now for pre-ordering) holding covers recorded by 7 contemporary dark wave, gothic and dreampop artists to honour Gary Human.
The album opens with Agent Side Grinder’s analogue rendition of “I’m an Agent”, followed by Ash Code’s postpunk/dark wave version of “Down in the Park”. Shad Shadows turn “Metal” into a darkwave track. On the last track of side A, Box & The Twins create dreamy soundscapes in their version of “Complex”.
Suir opens side B with a art-punk version of “Cars”. Synths Versus Me turns Numan’s monster hit “Are Friends Electric?” into a synthpop & EBM take with Art of Noise-esque vocals. The album’s closing track is a gothic rock rendition of “My Name is Ruin” by Swedish rockers Then Comes Silence.
Here’s already the video for the version Box & The Twins recorded of “Complex”.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
