Ref: 037OUT OF STOCK
Price: £20.82 (£24.98 Including VAT at 20%)
Released 21st November 2011.
Remastered from the original analogue tapes, Telekon is released for the very first time as a DOUBLE ALBUM. The original album was only released as a single disc in a value-for money move which also excluded the two singles We Are Glass and I Die: You Die. Pressed on 180g the 2LP set is packaged in a brand new gatefold sleeve with newly designed inner bags and includes the two singles We Are Glass and I Die: You Die.
Originally released in September 1980, the album was Gary Numans third successive No1 album in the UK. Following the stark Pleasure Principle, Telekon is densely atmospheric and oplulent sounding, in- corporating a wide range of synthesisers as well as viola, violin and Satie-like piano. The title track a particularly dark amalgamation of Bowies Aladdin Sane and Numans own android exotica, is followed by the funkier Remind Me To Smile which shows Numans ability to write a big pop chorus.
This period also saw the unveiling of probably his most iconic boiler suited look, which featured in all the photo shoots with elements in- corporated into the album and single art. The 2 parallel red belts would go on to be synonymous with Numaniods.
