From 1983 and with Numan back to bleached hair and donning Mad Max leathers, this marks his brief collaboration with one of my favourites, Bill Nelson (who also co-produced the subsequent album but had his name removed after a falling out!). Nelson’s E Bow guitar is all over this,as Numan goes all rock/funk in a style change just like what Bowie used to do! Back from America this change of direction again divided fans .Amazingly, Joe Hubbard played the bass on this not Pino Paladino. B-sides “My Car Slides 1 & ” are of the usual high quality. One slow and dark, the other dancier and having saxophone, very Bill Nelson!
