Episode 99 - Episodes from the Crypt, Part VIII - Gary Numan/Tubeway Army - Replicas w/ Special Guest Josh Carlsen
We're continuing our re-visitation of "Episodes from the Crypt", where we delve into the darker side of life. This time we're delving into nihilism and a dystopian future when we discuss Gary Numan/Tubeway Army's second studio album, 1979's "Replicas". And we're bringing Josh Carlsen along for the ride. "Replicas" was a bit of a shift from Tubeway Army's first album, and this shift would propel the rest of Gary Numan's career. But what of this album? Was it synthpop/darkwave masterpiece that greatly influenced electronic and industrial music or was it a collection of mostly forgettable songs that ripped off Kraftwerk? Tune in to find out. Plus we read your fan mail.
