Description

Gary Numan is a pioneer, and his influence on so many artists is unmistakable and grand. Gary’s style connects him with fans of multiple genres... electronic, industrial, indie-rock, metal, etc. He remains an innovator, and his fan base continues to grow. Dance was Gary Numan’s fifth studio album and was released in 1981. We are excited to reissue this album on double purple vinyl.

For this new edition, the tracks have been mastered over three sides for improved fidelity and the fourth side contains relevant singles, B-sides and an out-take. Additionally, the previously unreleased, full length version of “Moral” has been used to close out the original album.

Dance makes a notable effort by Gary Numan to step away from the synth-pop he was famous for, and experiment with something a little more jazzier, saxophones and all. Guests on the album include guitarist Rob Dean and (fretless) bassist/saxophonist Mick Karn of Japan, drummer Roger Taylor of Queen, keyboardist Roger Mason of Australian band Models, and Canadian alternative musician Nash the Slash. From Diffuser FM: The first noticeable thing about Dance, is the funk-driven bass of “Slowcar to China,” it reeks of the influence of the band Japan, who themselves had gone through a transformation from pseudo-glamsters into a refined Roxy Music-inspired band. Numan also made sure he had a new image to go with the new sounds. Gone were the futuristic inspired threads, replaced by the classic traditionalism of a smart suit and tie. “Night Talk” uses electronics but in a much more minimalist way with funk bass and rhythm box carrying most of the weight while other atmospheres and Numan’s vocals ride atop. Elements of David Bowie’s famous Berlin period are obviously part of Numan’s influence here, painting styles found on Low and Heroes into the mix. The single “She’s Got Claws” preceded the album and turned out to be another hit for Numan, hitting the U.K. Top 10 that summer. One of the album’s catchiest tracks, it bridges the sound he was leaving behind with the style he was now mining to good effect.
