« Savage: Songs From A Broken World » – Gary Numan

Parfois, le Web apporte des « retours de mémoire » inattendus… Je viens ainsi de réécouter un artiste dont le vinyle m’a accompagné pendant de nombreux jours et de nombreuses nuits de mon adolescence.

Son album « The Pleasure Principle » est sorti en 1979 : (re)découvrez Gary Numan avec le titre « Cars ».

Cet album est couramment considéré par les critiques et les fans comme le meilleur album de Numan ainsi que comme un élément pionnier de la new wave et de l’histoire de la musique électronique.

Here in my car
I feel safest of all
I can lock all my doors
It’s the only way to live
In cars
Here in my car
I can only receive
I can listen to you
It keeps me stable for days
In cars
Here in my car
Where the image breaks down
Will you visit me please?
If I open my door
In cars
Here in my car
I know I’ve started to think
About leaving tonight
Although nothing seems right
In cars

Son avant-dernière production date de 2017, et ce 18ème album est toujours dans la ligne musicale « Synth/Rock Industriel », à laquelle s’ajoute des influences orientales.

Savage (Songs from a Broken World) is a concept album centered around the blending of Western and Eastern cultures in a post-apocalyptic world that has become desertified as a result of global warming.

On a pu le retrouver sur scène en 2018 avec Nine Inch Nails (NIN), invité par Trent Reznor pour 2 titres extraits de son 1er album solo qui semble l’avoir marqué aussi.

Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells… Live!

Had never seen this Live version of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells…

BBC – 1973

Mike Oldfield took the world of music by storm at the age of 19 in 1973 with the release of his debut album, which hit the No.1 spot in numerous countries and has gone on to sell in excess of 16 million copies worldwide. A naturally shy man it was not until the end of the decade that he began to play live on a regular basis.

Enjoy!
