Famously one month older than Gary Oldman, Numan’s been ransacking his vaults to dig out some pretty spesh out takes & original versions.

In late 1978, Gary Numan was booked into a small studio in London’s Chinatown with the same musicians that had played on Tubeway Army’s debut album. A month later they again went to Gooseberry Studio and recorded an additional three tracks, including “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?” and “Replicas”. At the same time, the band recorded a session for the BBC’s John Peel show, taping alternate versions of three songs from the December recordings. Only one alternative out take still exists (“Down In The Park”) which is included in this release.
