    Sweet! I know he did a show with a small string section before, back on the Jagged tour. This concert series should be amazing!

    Here is their conductor's announcement about the shows. Live DVD recording at the Royal Albert Hall!

    Does anyone have a vinyl copy of Savage? I would like to have a lossless version of Cold if anyone ripped it (which is impossible to find on the net). Will be very grateful for a PM with the link

    If you buy the vinyl the download code includes Cold in mp3. I never ripped the vinyl because of it.

    Gary and Gemma popped over for tea with Toyah and Robert Fripp and I'm a little bit giddy about it!

    I really enjoyed it, although I couldn’t tell that the orchestra added massively to the sound, textures here and there and some new intros (which were partially drowned out by morons behind me chanting Nuuuman at any quiet bit). It was heavy on new stuff with about 5 or 6 oldies sprinkled in. Worth it for me as I got a completely unsullied view after having seen them at the Tramshed last year where I was right at the back, couldn’t see a thing. So I got to see Gary Numan’s modern interpretive dance routines, ha ha! They performed a new single which sounds good and I haven’t even heard about a new EP???

    Bit of a shame the orchestra didn't add more - been watching the Alter Bridge at The Royal Albert Hall Blu Ray - that's how to do it! Glad you enjoyed it though.

    WHAT. THE. ACTUAL. FCUK.

    Of course I know the name "Gary Numan", I do know he made some probably important album "Cars" decades ago :-), I like NIN "Metal", didn't like the recent live version on NIN channel very much, generally I don't look out for someone "new" to add to my list of approved artists :-) (the last one to make it was Steven Wilson before Hand.Cannot.Erase.) and don't trust recommendations anymore, but yesterday I tried innocent link in depechemode.cz comments and it was "My name is Ruin" - and my jaw dropped. WHAT? Then "The end of things" and it was done deal. I just listened to the whole Savage and Fallen EP (loud speakers, dark outside, just the fireplace burning) and I can't remember the last time I was this hypnotised by new music (maybe The Background World, but I know NIN), it's fucking amazing, where do I live with what people that noone mentioned this, it's great, I had no idea it could be this good! WOW. And he's only 60 (wow), so I'm here right from the start! :-) Some random memories from listening: Dead Can Dance, Alan Wilder remixing Nitzer Ebb, Blade Runner... can't remember, too overflown with the music. There's certain similar vibe to the tracks, but it's not all the same, and I was surprised it ends already. And it is loud but at least with this setup it worked beautifuly. And Gary signs much better than I thought he can. Got the get some t-shirt or something to let the world know! Mega.

    Fun detail: when I enter "recently added" on my DLNA server, there is also "The START of things" from mid90s. :-)

    Update:
    "Am I awake or lost in old dreams?"
    ...
    "Can any part of this be real?"
    Perfect, will also pay more attention to the lyrics once I'm capable of not be blown away so much. Also, from some comments here it seems like I'm better off with not knowing previous work, all is completely new to me. :-)

    A few days later, I'm still in awe of/from Savage/The Fallen, listening each day, random parts popping in my head all the time... and there's not a single weak song in there. It speaks to me so strongly, maybe the right time, place, emotional state, but for example I can't go through If We Had Known without tears in my eyes (can you?). "Can you forgive me in time?"

    Ooof, "If We Had Known" is a doozy. Strongly suspect it was inspired by the sudden loss of Wilbur, their English mastiff, a couple of years ago. Very sad.

    This new ep "the fallen" is blowing me away, in the same way savage blew me away.

    It is amazing, and “If We Had Known” is definitely about their family dog that passed. Everything Gary has been putting out lately has been absolute gold.

    My only complaint is that the new live release... well, you can really tell it has been fixed up in the studio with effects added and the vocals improved or re-recorded. I prefer a live release to be bare-bones and raw, mistakes and all included. It feels too polished from the videos I’ve seen posted on the official YT account.
