In the beginning of the year, I walked out of the DNCE show amazed at the performance I had just witnessed. It was incredible. I feel like Gary Numan wrapped up 2017 just like that for me – with an electric display of music and charisma at Denver’s Gothic Theatre.
Most people know Gary Numan from the song “Cars,” which is a staple of great 80s music. But, if you delve into his library, there is so much more than that – especially if you lean towards industrial a la Trent Reznor. (Gary and Trent have become great collaborators over the years.) The new album, Savage (Songs From A Broken World) is a dark look to a possible post-apocalyptic world. I personally find many of the songs to be quite beautiful, too – so perhaps there is hope for us yet.
As far as Gary Numan in concert? It was chaotic and seriously fun. A great way to end a year that felt like the world was going roll right off its axis.
