Gary Numan has begun to work on the follow up album to the highly successful Savage album. He has created a Making Music campaign to give you access to the journey. You can go along for the ride and experience the first recorded note all the way to the finished album, including things like witnessing the creation of artwork as it happens to hearing song audio and video.
This mix is made up of rare 80’s songs acquired through a friend who worked at a record store in Europe in the early 80s. The majority of these songs never existed anywhere else but on vinyl.
