Gary Numan – The Artist
Gary Anthony James Webb (born 1958), better known as Gary Numan, is an English singer, musician, songwriter, composer, and record producer. He first entered the music industry as the frontman of the new wave band Tubeway Army. After releasing two albums with the band, he released his debut solo album The Pleasure Principle in 1979, topping the UK Albums Chart. While his commercial popularity peaked in the late 1970s and early 1980s with the No. 1 singles “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?” and “Cars”, he maintains a strong cult following. Gary Numan is considered a pioneer of electronic music, with his signature sound consisting of heavy synthesiser hooks fed through guitar effects pedals. He is also known for his distinctive voice and androgynous “android” persona.
I Die You Die – The Song
“I Die You Die” is a song by the British musician Gary Numan, released as a single in 1980. Released shortly before his fourth album, Telekon, it continued the anthemic style Numan had begun earlier in the year with “We Are Glass”. The composer himself described the two singles as “Much the same thing. Both very chorus-orientated with the guitars as the main rhythmic device and the keyboards tinkling over the top”. Lyrically the song was aimed at what Numan saw as an increasingly vitriolic music press. I Die You Die was not on the initial UK album release but was on subsequent releases.
