Gary Numan

Replicas: The First Recordings

£15.99

Released: 11th October 2019. In late 1978, Gary Numan was booked into a small studio in London's Chinatown with the same musicians that had played on Tubeway Army's debut album, released a month earlier. Two stereo master tapes were compiled of eleven tracks. A month later they again went to Gooseberry Studio and recorded an additional three tracks, including 'Are 'Friends' Electric?' and 'Replicas'. At the same time, the band recorded a session for the BBC's John Peel show, taping alternate versions of three songs from the December recordings. Finally Numan returned to an upgraded studio, Marthus Music, in February to overdub and remix the Gooseberry recordings into their released versions.
