From 1981 and the change-of-direction single that divided followers of Numan. Cue Trilby and Fretless Bass and saxophone (both courtesy of Mick Karn) and a taster for the album, “Dance”, it was his 7th single, all dark funk. Here’s the list of musicians, another thing I miss being on the sleeves of 80’s records (handclaps eh?)
Gary Numan (Vocals, Odyssey, Roland JP4, Piano, CR78, Prophet 5),Cedric Sharpley (drums)Christopher Payne (Violas)Mick Karn (Bass, Saxophone) and John Webb ( handclaps)
Slightly longer than the 7″ version it has a superb bassline, as you would expect! Backed by the primal screaming over bubbling sequencer of “I Sing Rain” and the little hidden gem “Exhibition”, slow and moody and using a Foxx “Metal Beat” drum machine, a track from the “Telekon” era.
