JOHNNY TEMPLE of FAKE NAMES – Song For Ewe

“By 1980 synthesizers were moving to the front of the mix in Gary Numan’s music, but back in 1978 when Tubeway Army was recorded, the guitars and bass were louder and dirtier. I’ll never get tired of hearing the guitars kick in sixty seconds into “Listen to the Sirens.” I don’t know if Kurt Cobain was a Tubeway Army fan, but lyrically, this song and the album as a whole seem to be violently alienated uncles to Bleach and Nevermind.”

DYLAN HUNDLEY of LULU LEWIS – Song For Ewe

“Listen to the Sirens” by Tubeway Army (which later became just Gary Numan) is top choice. This song!!!! It hits everything for me. It’s synth, it’s rock, it’s primal, it’s slick and rough. Total perfection of its era and the Eno, Roxy Music influences are so well carried on to a new place. It goes into my top 20 of all time ever for sure. It’s also extra cool that Gary Numan is top of the charts in Great Britain right now! Very glad that this music is still alive and loved.”
