MARTIN'S TRIBUTE TO
GARY NUMAN

"Instead of going chung-chung-chung on the guitar,
I went nee-nee-nee on the synth."
- Gary Numan



1978

"It's so quiet and dark, and I shouldn't be here.
This machine is my voice, please listen"

- 'Steel and you'



1979

"The strangest living boy you could ever wish to see,
'That's me'."
- 'The Machman'


"My only talent musically is as an arranger of noises."
- Gary Numan



1980


"The telephone lines blind,
You have defaced my face."
- 'Please push no more'



1981

"Boys like me aren't supposed to cry,
But it's so easy to do,
Boys like me aren't supposed to cry,
But just look at you."
- 'Night-talk'



1982

"Same old smile that cracked a thousand hearts,
But not mine.
Same old line,
I've read the book and I know you well."

- 'The 1930's Rust'



1983

"Somewhere in dark corners,
I know, something is wrong."

- 'My Centurion'



1984

"Something is here,
I can hear them breathe,
Something is here,
And I'm scared."

1985

"You told me,
Time makes it easy,
But you never told me time stands still."

- 'I still Remember'



1986

"I'm back and I'm proven,
I'm back and I'm strong,
And I've been waiting for so long now."

- 'I Can't Stop'



1988

"I wonder if at times,
you ever think of me,
or even call my name,
I don't suppose you do?"

- 'Whispers'



1992

"Love is a mountain,
but harder to climb,
it should be forever,
but love is unkind to me."

- 'The Seed of a lie'



1986

"And I'll believe in you,
when you come for me,
And I'll believe in you,
When the world comes apart."

- 'Faith'



1997

"I would swim across oceans,
just to talk with you.
I would climb a tall mountain,
just to look at you."

- 'Absolution'


The following pictures are my own photos which were taken
at the Big Thunder Airshow at Bruntingthorpe Airfield
where Gary was flying his Harvard.
