Gary Numan Telekon on 2LP

Second Solo Effort Remastered by Award-Winning Engineer John Dent at Loud Mastering!

Gary Numan is a musical pioneer, and his influence on so many artists is unmistakable and grand. Numan's eclectic style connects him with fans of multiple genres including electronic, industrial, indie-rock and metal. He remains an innovator, and he's been name-checked by everyone from Kanye West to Foo Fighters and Queens Of The Stone Age, and an ever-growing list of artists have covered and sampled his music. These range from Basement Jaxx to Damon Albarn, Afrika Bambaataa and Wu Tang Clan's RZA and GZA.

The LP versions of his classic albums Replicas (1979), The Pleasure Principle (1979) and Telekon (1980) have had scattered availability over the years, and Beggar's Banquet is pleased to put them back in print once again. All of the albums are pressed on standard black vinyl and have been cut from high-resolution digital files (96 khz / 24 bit transfers from the analog master tapes) by award-winning engineer John Dent at Loud Mastering. Replicas and The Pleasure Principle are single LPs and Telekon is a double LP.

Telekon was released in 1980 and was Numan's third successive #1 album in the UK. Unlike it's predecessor The Pleasure Principle, Telekon had plenty of guitars, along with strings and lush synthesizer textures. While it was hard to follow up the previous release, Telekon proved to be hugely influential. Trent Reznor claimed to have listened to it every day during the making of Pretty Hate Machine. Telekon was originally released as a single album but being so long, it lost some of the dynamic range. This release is over four sides of vinyl and includes bonus singles, B-sides, alternate mixes and an out-take.
