Gary Numan at Hop Farm 2012: Supajam Review

Bathed in red, blue and white lights, Numan and his band look exceptionally cool in silhouette.

The band churned out tortured dark electro with mechanical precision. Like a machine, with Numan being the renegade cog of unpredictability. Twisting, contorting and slamming his way through some monstrous headbanging industrial sounds.

Closing with Are Friends Electric?, Numan has the crowd hypnotised with that timeless melody. He was acting like gothic Jesus, and he had every right to.
