Product description

Product Description

Pressed on 180g the 2LP set is packaged in a brand new gatefold sleeve with newly designed inner bags and includes the two singles 'We Are Glass' and 'I Die: You Die'. Originally released in September 1980, the album was Gary Numan's third successive No1 album in the UK. Following the stark Pleasure Principle, Telekon is densely atmospheric and oplulent sounding, incorporating a wide range of synthesisers as well as viola, violin and Satie-like piano. The title track a particularly dark amalgamation of Bowies 'Aladdin Sane' and Numans own android exotica, is followed by the funkier 'Remind Me To Smile' which shows Numans ability to write a big pop chorus. This period also saw the unveiling of probably his most iconic 'boiler suited' look, which featured in all the photo shoots with elements incorporated into the album and single art. The 2 parallel red belts would go on to be synonymous with Numaniods. The whole album took on a dark and intense feeling, an artist struggling with disappointment, paranoia, confusion and screaming out for change. Earlier in August I Die: You Die was released as a single, which was beautifully anthemic. A very pretty circular melody scratched with guitars, earpiercing electronic sounds and a vindictive lyric aimed squarely at the media. During the albums recording Numan decided to quit touring and bow out with a series of lavish concerts in 1981 at Wembley Arena. These concerts were released on CD in 1997, Vinyl 180 will release this concert for the first time as a 3LP set as part of the 80-81 boxed set available seperately.
