How can we get the word out about Gary : We can't . The teenage music world isn't interested . The hardcore aged 25+ will always know 'the word' though .

What is your favourite Numan album : Telekon

What is your favourite Numan song : We Are Glass

Apart from Numan what is your favourite group/artist : Ultravox, The Alarm, U2, Peter Gabriel, Oasis, Kate Bush

What is the worst aspect of being a Numan fan : The Music Press. Even now. The same clueless wankers who slagged him in the first place are now jumping on the band wagon to 're-appraise him'. He was always good. You just got it wrong. Admit it !

How many other Numan fans do you know (offline) : 3 or 4

What has been your greatest achievement in life : The achievements I have enjoyed and value most are mainly sporting ones. I'd go for scoring my first century at cricket probably. (Apologies to non sporty types)

How can we get the word out about Gary : I don't think that's our job.

If Gary's next album were in a country-and-western style, would you buy it : Of course. Even his musical 'failures' are better than a lot of peoples 'successes'. I'm sure he'd bring enough of himself to any project to make it worth a listen.

Do you have a least favourite Gary Numan album : The ones I listen to least are probably M & S and The Plan. Both certainly have their high points though.

Do you still buy any of your music on vinyl : No - my turntable died years ago and I wouldn't even know where to go to get it fixed (or even if I'd want to).

What track do you most wish Gary had released as a single : Definately 'Remind me to smile' instead of 'This Wrekage'. It would have been huge.

Could Gary benefit from using a producer that respected and understood his style : I don't think so. Nobody understands his music better than Gary. Amply demonstrated by Bill Nelson throwing his toys and storming out of the 'Warriors' sessions.

Why are we all such fanatical fans : Two reasons I think. First, a lot of us got into Gary's music at an impressionable age (early teens). Secondly, the way he has been treated by the Music Press (and others) brings out that great British love of the 'underdog'. (Even in our foreign cousins !) - The fact that He's a genius probably helps as well. (I mean, early Kajagoogoo fans were fanatical but they grew up eventually didn't they.)

Are you a musician : Some would say so, others not. I like to think I am.

When is Gary going to stop rehashing Cars and getting back to what he's good at : It's not Gary rehashing Cars it's Beggars Banquet. As far as getting back to what he's good at goes, he did that on Sacrifice and He's been doing it ever since.s

Who would you like to see Numan do a duet with : Nobody springs to mind but I'm sure there's a few potentially interesting ones out there.

Gary has a way of making beautiful haunting music, rich and full, sparse and open all at the same time. His great voice blends the vocal element into a seamless and amazing meld of music and lyric.

Do we want Gary to produce work which sounds like the old stuff? I for one would like to get the shivvers when I hear a new Gary Numan record again.

Why are we all such fanatical fans : Sucess in the face of adversity springs to mind.

Are you a musician : Yes. I play guitar and some keyboard programming.

When is Gary going to stop rehashing Cars and getting back to what he's good at : It is what puts the food on Gary`s table. If it sells by the bucket load every time it`s released then why not ! I don`t think Gary is the main driving force behind the re- releases any way.

Your Name : André Fokkema

Your Age : 30

How old were you when you became a fan : 9

Where were you when you first heard Gary's music : At home

Have you ever tried to look like Gary : Only in trying to look a little menacing, which he could sometimes do.

What is your favourite Numan album : Sacrifice, although Telekon comes close

What is your favourite Numan song : I Dream Of Wires

Apart from Numan what is your favourite group/artist : The Cure/Depeche Mode/Rush/Sisters Of Mercy/U2/Pink Floyd

What is the worst aspect of being a Numan fan : In Holland he is not very well-known. So nobody knows who he is or what he sounds like. That makes it a bit difficult for people to understand my devotion.

How many other Numan fans do you know (offline) : 1

What has been your greatest achievement in life : Travelling to England(London) on my birthday to see Gary Numan LIVE (12 june 1999/The Forum)

What has been your greatest failure in life : Too many things to mention just here!

What is your favourite TV Program : Married With Children

How did you feel the first time you heard Gary's music : It blasted me away completely. Even though I was just 9 years old, it was different from anything else that I had ever heard till then.

If you could change one thing in the world. what would it be : Make Gary Numan more popular than any other artist.

How many times have you seen Gary live : Only twice unfortunately, but many will follow I hope!!

Do you have a Gary Numan related tattoo : No!! I don't have any at all, but if I would take one, it would probably be the logo from the Exile-sleeve or the Telekon-sign.

Does Garys disregard for fans thoughts on God offend you : I am a christian and I was a tiny little bit shocked when I found out that he had written an entire album about the subject. But then some things he says show that he has at least given it a lot of thought, and in the end he hasn't got the answers, I haven't got the answers, and we respect each other for that(hopefully)!

How can we get the word out about Gary : Not a lot we haven't done already. It's mainly up to the press, radio and other media-sources.

If Gary's next album were in a country-and-western style, would you buy it : If it's a cross-over of C & W with the ever so particular Numan-sound(which it will undoubtedly ever have),YES.

Do you have a least favourite Gary Numan album : Not really. Machine + Soul in itself is a nice album and so is Outland. Somehow it just didn"t come across as very Numan-ish, apart from a few notable exceptions, but that doesn't make them bad albums at all.

Do you still buy any of your music on vinyl : Hardly!

What track do you most wish Gary had released as a single : Gary has released songs as a single of which I thought: this is going to be a big hit! And it didn't. So if the genius himself is unable to determine which song could be Top 10, how could I? Sometimes the most unobvious songs become a hit, so maybe he should have tried something unusual. I think that a lot of people still want him to make this weird, strange music, which would justify such a release.

Could Gary benefit from using a producer that respected and understood his style : Who knows. But it will never be really Gary Numan. Yet it would be nice if he would cooperate on 1 or 2 tracks with Flood or Brian Eno.

Why are we all such fanatical fans : There's nothing like it! It has taken over parts of our souls, our hearts, our lives, etc. It's like some disease that cannot be stopped. But hey, I certainly don't want to be cured from this disease!

Are you a musician : More or less: I have a synthesizer workstation plus a digital studio workstation. I work on songs I have come up with myself and try to be original. Can't help it, but the influence is there I'm afraid.

When is Gary going to stop rehashing Cars and getting back to what he's good at : Gary doesn't really. Besides, it's a terrific song, with the best synthesizer-sounds I have ever heard! We should all be proud of the song and of the fact that it has charted so many times. It only goes to show the genius the man and the song are!!!!!

Who would you like to see Numan do a duet with : Robert Smith from The Cure or Rush would be a nice combination. Rush have these weird lyrics as well, which would perfectly suit Gary's singing.

Your Name : Antonio

Your Age : 33

How old were you when you became a fan : 12

Where were you when you first heard Gary's music : in the cafe at the local swimming pool, I think. I heard Boomtown rat's 'I Don't Like Mondays' and 'Cars'. I did not like Cars. I later heard Complex and that's what hooked me :>

Have you ever tried to look like Gary : Yes

What is your favourite Numan album : Changes, bu right now, Dance.

What is your favourite Numan song : Complex, for sentimental reasons.

Apart from Numan what is your favourite group/artist : Marc Almond.

What is the worst aspect of being a Numan fan : Having to justify my taste in music to people who own Tom Jones albums.

How many other Numan fans do you know (offline) : Loads

What has been your greatest achievement in life : Living to 33.

What has been your greatest failure in life : Living to 33.

What is your favourite TV Program : Ali G

How did you feel the first time you heard Gary's music : i didn't like it. It was ars. I like Cars a bit now, but I ignored it mostly then.

If you could change one thing in the world. what would it be : Everyone would, like, get on with each other and there would be no more wars.

How many times have you seen Gary live : I have no idea. Over 30.

Do you have a Gary Numan related tattoo : No

Does Garys disregard for fans thoughts on God offend you : No

How can we get the word out about Gary : We can't.

If Gary's next album were in a country-and-western style, would you buy it : Probably. And if it was GN C'n'W, I'd imagine a dark, Nick Cave style, which would be cool.

Do you have a least favourite Gary Numan album : Yes - predictably, it's Machine and Soul

Do you still buy any of your music on vinyl : Yes

What track do you most wish Gary had released as a single : Noise Noise

Could Gary benefit from using a producer that respected and understood his style : I don't really think so. Financially, probably. Artistically, I really don't think so. I suppose the product would be more polished, but it would be reduced to just that - a product. I *like* the way Gary produces his own work. I *like* the bass really low - it gives it a unique flavour - there is nobody who sounds like Numan.

Why are we all such fanatical fans : I don't think we are - I just think other people percieve us that way. I know Marc Almond fans wh are every bit as 'fanatical' - I am sure there are fanatical fans of just about every band you could name.

Are you a musician : No

When is Gary going to stop rehashing Cars and getting back to what he's good at : He already has. I don't think *any* of the Cars reissues were Gary's idea, to be honest - maybe the 'e-reg' version was, but the others I think were more to do with Beggars Banquet - they rehash everything from Cult to Bauhaus if they think there is money to be made... and good luck to them.
