Now having just seen the video for minimal, I could see this on MTV hits (the digital cable channel I get in the 200's)--which actually plays a little bit of a variety of music, including the occasional dance song. This is the first PSB video I've seen in a long time that I thought could get any US ...

I haven't seen any promo. I haven't seen recent issues of Rolling Stone or Spin, either. A plan might be to do some with the tour since it's looking like no US singles for the time being at least. There is, of course, the remote possibility of a push for a grammy nod (a la To Step Aside)? Speaking o...

I saw Numan twice and he was great both times--in Pittsburgh and in Chicago, two very different crowds, after Exile came out and then after Pure. I am actually very religious, and I don't find his (anti) religious music offensive--sometimes it's really good or even intelligent or honest: Prayer for ...

I think that being on Rhino might bring about some more of MD's fourth crowd, the 80s nostalgia. But this might also hurt crowds 2 and 3--being on Sanctuary probably got some notice. What ever happened with the santuary relationship? If it's any indication of how bizarre the U.S. is in terms of musi...

I very much liked the last string of records: Sacrifice (though the recording quality is awful), Exile, and Pure--I can't decide what I think of the new one, Jagged. It's as pretentious and self-indulgent as his worst work, but I have to respect the risk. Or maybe it isn't a risk, but giving what he...

Gary Numan

I'm new to the forum. To pick up a side comment from the "Buggles" discussion, any Numan fans out there? I have often dreamt/wondered what a PSB/Numan collaboration or cover would look or sound like. I have heard Numan say in interviews that he's not interested in pop music, often naming t...
