I'm sure you're all familiar with Gary Numan already. Y'know, the guy who did "Cars"? Yeah. Him.
Anyway, before his solo career, he played in a killer fucking band called Tubeway Army. They were VERY new wave and VERY goofy. Heavy on the synthesizers and lyrics about robots.
In fact, Replicas is sort of a concept album about androids in love (shades of Heartbeeps, anyone?).
You are helpless to resist the charms of Gary Numan.

You can also get his solo debut album, The Pleasure Principle, over at The Hearse. I really think you should.

Official music video for "Cars" (I was looking for his amazing performance from Urgh! A Music War but couldn't find it):

For me, his solo material is nearly indistinguishable from Tubeway Army, stylistically. Dude rules.

The first Tubeway Army album is a lot more guitar-based and less keyboardy. Quite a bit different. I don't know if you've heard it, but I've got it around here somewhere...

Nope, don't have the first one, heard it some time in the '90's though. The guitarist in the little band we had was a Numan freak, among other things...
