Gary Numan

Gary Numan may have come off as a one-hit wonder here in the States, thanks to "Cars," but in his native England, the album from which that ubiquitous single came, The Pleasure Principle, was the second of three consecutive No. 1 LPs for the young synth-pop pioneer. He's touring now behind his 20th studio album, Splinter (Songs from a Broken Mind), a taut affair that reflects some of the edge big fan Trent Reznor nicked from Numan.
