Meh.  It's no "What Does the Fox Say?"

good stuff - i really like DubFX - many are doing this type of thing, but few have been able to really have the dynamic and depth that i find in DubFX's stuff.  it all comes back to being a creative songwriter and the ability to arrange.

No, you are wrong, prepositions are not bad words to end a sentence with.

a few months ago i was listening to the radio and the DJ played a song by some new band - the DJ went into length detailing how it was a cover of another band's song.  i pulled over i was laughing so hard.  the song in question was about the 5th time someone covered it, it's from the 1960's!

vacuums.

Thank you. I never realized they sampled his song.

Well then, I'll just use this thread to point folks toward my favorite early Gary Numan songs. If you're not familiar with Numan (or only familiar with 'Cars'), and like that particularly menacing version of the '80s synth sound, you might just find something that will blow you away. 35 years later, and it still sounds better and more relevant than the legion of folks who have tried to re-capture that sound/feeling in every decade that followed:

Me, I Disconnect From You
We Are So Fragile
I Die, You Die
Remember, I Was Vapour
We Are Glass
Metal
Films
Are 'Friends' Electric
Cars

You mean a  young unoriginal, hipster version of Jello Biafra with a fake Jamaican accent?

LewDux:

Well, I suppose it all depends on how widely you want to cast that net....like I would personally say that Numan's music stood out from the popular, synth-heavy '80s artists that were more his contemporaries, like say Depeche Mode, A Flock of Seagulls, or The Human League. All bands that I enjoy, and have a similar sound, but lack whatever tiny degree of malaise that makes Numan's (early) music still resonate. That said, all of those folks and Numan himself were all probably pulling from the same pool of even-earlier influences (Ultravox, Kraftwerk) rather than Numan being some seminal force who inspired everybody else of that era.

In the '90s is more where I see Numan's direct influence. The Marilyn Manson example cited above is a good example, but Trent Reznor/Nine Inch Nails were even more directly influenced by Numan and his sound, and from those roots were born thousands and thousands of sound-a-like bands who were indirectly channeling Gary Numan, most of the time without even knowing who he was. Then there was the other groups of folks like the Bassment Jacks/Sneaker Pimps/Chemical Brothers/The Prodigy who most certainly knew who he was, and literally put his music to work for them.

After the turn of the millennium, my ears hear Gary Numan popping up in all sorts of acts like Bloc Party, Interpol, The Walkmen, Robyn, etc. There are folks trying to re-capture that '80s sound as perfectly as possible, and/or you can hear that sound mixed in with other influences, and sometimes it's just a particular note/riff, or the tone of the synth that reminds me of Numan, but I still hear his influence all over the place...of course, your mileage may vary.

....and my apologies to the submitter for blathering endlessly about something that has very, very little to do with the subject posted.

There is very little that is as retarded as 'beatboxing' or the people who do it.

I doubt anyone can top those two.  Beardyman doing aphex twin stung by bees is my favorite

I've been listening to ThePetebox for about a year. His album future loops is far better than this one hit. His version of the Pixies "Where is my mind" was so good, the Pixies had it on their website for months. Very talented cat.
