Gary Numan - Live in Brighton, UK, 2013

 

Gary Numan – one of the most influential performers in modern music, and one of the few to successfully transition from early new wave beginnings into the darker territories of industrial rock.

With nearly 30 years under its tactical belt and zero signs of slowing down, allied with opener tribal/industrial drum act CHANT, KMFDM once again set sights on striking one of America’s major arteries with a virulence that seems almost impossible to stop.
