    Side thought, I kinda wish he stuck with the original title of "Resurrection" for DSR and dropped the sub-titles of the last two albums. Then we’d have a straight run of awesome single word titles (yes, I know Dead Moon Falling screws it up, but you get where I’m going):

    - Sacrifice
    - Exile
    - Pure
    - Exposure (dat title track!)
    - Hybrid (dat title track again!)
    - Mutate
    - Jagged
    - Resurrection
    - Splinter
    - Savage
    - Intruder

    Fun fact: before “Big Noise Transmission” came out it was being written live on set lists as “Captured Underground Noise Transmission”. I asked Gary at a meet and greet if the shortened version of it was intentional (CUNT), and he laughed and actually hadn’t made the realisation. I could be the reason why the title was shortened. Lol

    Yeah, his last 10 years (particularly since Dead Son Rising came out) have been pretty amazing, top to bottom.

    @botley - Have you ever read what the meaning behind the album title “Dance” is about? And why the title track was omitted from the album only to later appear on reissues? Always been fascinated by that album name.

    Also:

    In the liner notes to the 1999 remastered CD, Steve Malins calls the word 'Dance' a recurring metaphor in the lyrics for "closeness and intimacy". I don't know if that was Numan's specific intent, or just how Malins interpreted it, but that seems to fit pretty well. It's one hell of an esoteric album title though, considering how not-danceable most of it is. As to the title track being left off the original running order — who can say? I think Gary just ran out of room for it, and since there was only one single, it never even got to be a B-side. Glad the album was expanded to a double LP recently so I can listen to the whole thing on vinyl.

    Yeah, that makes sense. Also taking the lyrics to the title track into consideration with the repeated “and I would die for you” refrain.

    Is the extended version of “Moral” from the recent re-release much different from the original version? Or just like an extended intro? I haven’t had time to compare the two.

    Good interview with Joe Hubbard about his work with Gary on the Warriors album and the subsequent 1983 UK "comeback" tour:



    Not my favourite period of his, but interesting to get some insight from behind the curtain. Funny that Dick Morrissey came on board because of his recommendation, and Gary kept hiring him for all those sax solos for the rest of the 80s...
