The Pleasure Principle

Last spin of the night.
Gary Numan is the GOAT 🐐.
He is still unfairly categorized as a one hit wonder when in fact, the entirety of his career is as important & cutting edge as ANYBODY’S.
Just one remarkable album after another over FORTY years.
Without him, there is no dark synth wave in the #80s, no Nine Inch Nails, no #industrial boom in the #90s.
His musical career is rivaled by few.
A visionary genius.

Ever hear of Nichitsu? It's a Japanese mining town that boomed and then hit bust in 1978 after the iron and zinc mines that built its fortune dried up. Residents started leaving until the town was abandoned entirely by the mid-80s.
One expedition into Nichi in 2011 took quite a few snaps of what they found in this time bubble of the early 80s; one of the things they found was a remarkably intact NEC PC 9801.
