‘Selected Events’ 2010 – Chicago
Following Recoil’s recent US leg tour announcement, we are excited to add another special date – this time at The Metro in Chicago on 26th October. ‘A Strange Hour’ will be presented at a unique event – a double bill featuring both Recoil and Gary Numan! Gary and his band will be performing his classic ‘The Pleasure Principle’ album in full. Architect are also on the bill for this show.
With layers of analogue synthesizers and futuristic, dystopian lyrics, The Pleasure Principle’s 10 songs are given one-word titles; not least the massive hit single ‘Cars’, arguably the first British electro song to dent the US charts. ‘The Pleasure Principle’ is Gary Numan’s most commercially successful album and is a striking turnaround from the guitar-powered, Joy Division-like post punk of his original band Tubeway Army. Aside from bass, percussion and some strings, every instrument is electronic. For more information on the Gary Numan Pleasure Principle 2010 Tour please visit www.numan.co.uk
