Despite his miserablism, his eternal Bowie-aping and his right-wing tendencies, the Numanoid has long since been recognised as the godfather of electronica and the spiritual progenitor of Marilyn Manson. For three nights in Kentish Town, he’s playing his first three albums (all of which topped the charts) in full: Tubeway Army‘s ‘Replicas’ on Wednesday, ‘The Pleasure Principle’ on Thursday and ‘Telekon’ on Friday. If you like buzzing synthesizers and songs about lonely robots and automobiles, you can’t go wrong here.

This legend has never rested on past glory. He reinvents music every time he issues a new piece of work. Splinter his latest album will prove this yet again with Anthemic roars of industrial goth metal synth all combined in a massive and powerful sound of something new and fresh. This Numanoid thrives on technology and uses it to build on his future works of art. Like any great Artist you never want to reproduce the same painting. I have heard enough of this new album to know that it will be performed live with great acclaim. Cannot wait for the Roundhouse gig and the release of Splinter.
