OK. So at the door they did say no cameras, but they did not even do a body check. I hope you guys would have thought of bringing your cameras too. In any case, I am sure you did not see the Gary Numan show that just finished it's stateside appearance, so I thought I would share what I got away with.
The show itself was great! The concentration was clearly on his last two CD's, with several songs
from the really old days (Down in the Park, Skin Mechanic, Are Friends Electric?) thrown in for
the fans. What was disappointingly missing was essentially everything that fell between "Dance"
and "Metal Rhythym," basically all of his mid-80's through mid-90's stuff. I there was any
other overall critic from my corner, it was the mixing of the guitars being so high while the
keyboards were hardly noticible at times with two keyboardists.
Now, enjoy the pictures!
|The selection of the band was apparently
not based on looks. His suspenders had fallen to his
knees, but his pants never fell off.
Just in case you gave me any credit for have the ingenuity of bringing my camera, now I will admit that a couple of Strangler fans gave me the idea after they took these at the show we attended. This bunch came all the way from London, so I guess they just wanted a bit more for their money. Can't blame them there. Anyway, here are a few shots from a great gal named Paula.

Anyone remember where they ripped this off from?
The best guess so far is a Clash single
|Current singer, Paul, replaced Hugh Corwall
on vocals 10 years ago.
|Longtime keyboardist, Dave|
|Lead guitarist Baz, took up the other half of Hugh's
job in 2000.
|Here we are after the show. What a great bunch!|
