Numan on musical skills, making terrifying music and Alan Partridge

In the final instalment of our interview series with Gary Numan, recorded at The Hospital Club in London last month, Numan tells Simon Price about how he felt being featured on Alan Partridge and The Mighty Boosh.

Of the Partridge clip, Numan says: "The first time I saw it, we had a friend round visiting, Wayne Hussey from The Mission, I'm not sure that he's into Partridge that much but I love it, we were watching this series and that came on and I jumped out of my seat, ran around the room and went 'Yes!'"

Revel in Partridge's air bass prowess below and watch the previous videos here: one, two, three and four.
