Tubeway Army - That's Too Bad

The first single from Gary Numan, in the form of Tubeway Army. When this came out we all thought it was punk, and we all loved it, same with the excellent second single "Bombers" (which I will post later).

Both sides of this single are brilliant. Most of you will know Gary Numan's later electronic material, if you didn't like it, do not be put off, this single is well worth a listen.

The cover for me is an indication of how ahead of his time he was, he clearly wanted to be making some kind of futuristic music (check out his name on the back cover - Valeriun!). Also check out how he was dressed.

Band: Tubeway Army
Label: Beggars Banquet
Year: 1978
Tracks:
1. That's Too Bad
2. Oh Didn't I Say

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:


His first album, originally called the blue album is also excellent. So if you like this then go and buy this remastered version
Tubeway Army: Remastered
Tubeway Army: Remastered

and also some interesting versions of early material on this one:

alright gary, tested a file this morning and everything seemed to be ok on divshare, did notice it hadn't updated downloads, but no looping going on. I dunno, I've been using 4shared at the moment for some stuff. Incase of problems.
