One of the pioneers of electronic rock music, Gary Numan first came onto the music scene in the late 1970s as part of the new wave band Tubeway Army. While other bands seemed to be trying to imbue synth-music with all the pomp and ceremony of glam-rock, Numan’s approach was much more experimental, industrial, and dark.
It was this experimental and exciting approach that brought Numan success as Tubeway Army topped the charts with their album Replicas. You can celebrate Gary Numan with Music Poster and explore our collection of unique Gary Numan posters and prints.
Tubeway Army’s biggest hits became floor-fillers in the 1980s, with the likes of “Down in the Park” and “Are Friends Electric?” channelling the influences of Numan’s fascination with dystopian sci-fi. Feeding synth-hooks through guitar effects pedals, he developed an uncompromising sound that, combined with his starkly androgynous appearance, captured the public imagination.
Numan’s eye-catching appearance makes our Gary Numan posters the perfect statement piece for your wall.
As a solo artist, Gary Numan released some cult classics, such as “Cars” and “We Are Glass”, earning himself legions of fans, self-proclaimed as “Numanoids”. Having influenced artists such as Kanye West and Prince — as well as selling over 10 million records — Gary Numan confirms his status as a legend of British music.
Today, Numan’s sound has come full-circle, evolving into a harder, industrial soundscape, fused with punk influences from his early days.
