A Quietus Hour Special: With Gary Numan
John Doran , August 3rd, 2017 08:44

Gary Numan sits down with John Doran to talk about his new album and play his favourite music

Portrait by Al Overdrive

Today’s guest on The Quietus Hour episode 45 is none other than, long time favourite of the website, Mr Gary Numan. Currently back in Europe for a UK tour, he took time out to drop into tQHQ to play us some of his favourite records (not to mention some of his own tracks) and discuss his 22nd album, Savage: Songs From A Broken World. In a long and frank chat he talked to tQ editor, John Doran about his long planned sci-fi novel, how he wants his kids to follow in his footsteps, the differences (and similarities) between heavy drug use and piloting stunt planes and what he shares in common with Tupac Shakur.

Gary's musical selections come from the likes of Sisters Of Mercy, Rammstein, T Rex and Nine Inch Nails. Thanks as always go to producer 'Mighty' Seb White and Todd The Dog - not to forget Al Overdrive for the fab snaps.
