Gary Numan @ O2 Institute, 19th October 2019

You’d be hard pressed to find an artist with the kind of career Gary Numan has had since his emergence as a pop icon at the turn of the 1980s. Pioneering electronic-based music before weathering a decline in fortunes and reinventing himself and heading in a more gothic industrial rock direction, Numan returned to the top […]

Nightmare Air – Fade Out

Time flies by in the wonderful world of the #realbirminghamlive and the appearance of the new album by Nightmare Air is testament to that. Some Mancunian bloke once wrote: the passing of time and all of its crimes is making me sad again. Not that I’m particularly sad, in general or about the release of Fade Out. […]

Promoting his recently released album, Savage (Songs from a broken World), Gary Numan called into the Institute as part of his UK Tour.

Gary Numan + Officers @ HMV Institute, Birmingham – 31st May 2012

Numan’s career’s seen as many ups and downs as one of his flying displays (he was, by all accounts, one of the best aerobatic pilots around), from slightly scary synthpop pioneer through to, well, slightly scary industrial rock god. Back in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s he fell seriously out of favour and by […]

Gary Numan + Jayce Lewis @ Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall, 18th September 2011

Well, how the music scene goes through phases. You can be cool. Then incredibly uncool. Then go though a really tough time. And then, by hook and by crook, you’re sneakily cool again – almost übercool when the right (currently) cool people cite you as a musical influence. And so to a Sunday night out […]

However, before I can experience the glittering golden array of Gary’s back catalogue […]

Gary Numan @ Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall – 23rd April 2009

Tonight has started bad. The car park is full, due to some guy I’ve never heard of playing the main Civic Hall. Then the queue at the box office is massive, also due to that same guy, so I completely miss the support act. To be honest, I don’t even know who they were or […]
