I love having a mostly vinyl blog because you don’t know what-ya-going-ta-get when you’re diggin’ in a crate of records . Hence the beginning of this track has a little help with my index finger, okay it bloody jumps about a bit for the first 10 seconds but it is PHYSICAL AND THUS REAL, apologies mmm it is simply produced as god intended! From 1995 and on his own label , Mr. Numan gives this prophetic message in his blue, Samurai phase.
“Why make speeches? Why give orders? Give me a reason to die”
“No more questions No more answers All that’s left is the fear”
A tougher sound and the second single off the 1984 album , “Berserker” It goes on a little bit longer than needed but includes lots of new sounds for the time. A more synth based sound, it was released on his own Numa Records and uses the then new PPG Wave. Again 2 quality B-sides. “Here Am I” is a slow burner with plenty of Sax and fretless bass by Martin Elliot. “She Cries” sounds a bit like Japan, lots of E Bow guitars and more fretless bass and sounding like it came of the “Dance” album sessions.
