Ah, the great and magnificent Mr. Gary Numan  aka Mr. Gary Webb. Might as well get things started with a personal fave.

Track: 'Are Friends Electric'

"Complex" must be one of the first (and one of the few) electro-acoustic ballads to reach the UK top
ten (see link below for info). Numan has since rejected the original cheap effect-heavy video, stating in
a TV interview that it "makes him look like a wanker". So you can all look at this record cover instead:

I still have to watch this in full but I noticed Gary was in it. It looks fascinating!

And here's a song about Gary Numan (and his Porsche):

Back to the man himself--well, almost. There's a bass guitar topic over at PSF where this track wouldn't be out of place. Pino Paladino is the business:

I've resumed listening to albums at the start and close of day. Dance is my current album of choice:

DGQ: In the version of "AFE" you linked in your new '80s topic, Gary is certainly more expressive (and even giggly) than at any other time I've seen him perform (in video clips). He even turns 180 degrees a couple of times, as if he's trying to shake off a fit of the giggles. 

My theory is that his friend Su Wathan (or maybe his folks) is in the audience and he's inevitably making eye contact with them and slipping out of the unsmiling persona he wanted to be (and told his bandmates to be: he said there was to be no "Hello, Mum!" stuff on TOTP). I may be wrong but it looks suspiciously that way to me. Fabulous video though!

Somewhat surprisingly, Gary was the subject of a Dutch crossword puzzle entry a few days ago. The clue was "Gary who wondered if friends were electric". "AFE" was only a minor hit in NL at the time so it would seem his reputation has grown since then.
