A look at the rise, fall and reinvention of the Godfather of Electro, after rising to fame with Are Friends Electric? In 1979 with Tubeway Army, Gary Numan saw major success, and a serious career slump, before he was rediscovered by a new generation of electro fans. Examining the rise, fall and reinvention of the ‘Godfather of Electro’, this documentary tackles the question that badgers many Numan fans: was his success despite his undiagnosed condition of Aspergers or because of it? It also reveals how he accidentally discovered his unique musical style and his love of display flying, as well as and how he deals with his loyal, but often hypercritical, fans.

At the end of the 1970s a nervy young musician topped the music charts and quickly became one of the most famous men on the planet. Three decades of groundbreaking and hugely influential music followed, then came six long years of silence. This documentary follows the godfather of electronic music on a one-way trip to crack America, break into Hollywood and return to the studio for the first time in nearly a decade. It is also an intimate story of love and second chances for Numan, wife Gemma and their family as they set up home in Los Angeles.

Telekon is the fourth studio album (and second album under his own name) by the British musician Gary Numan. It debuted at the top of the UK Albums Chart in September 1980, making it his third consecutive (and to date, final) No. 1 album. Telekon was also the third and final studio release of what Numan retrospectively termed the "machine" section of his career, following 1979's Replicas and The Pleasure Principle.

Unlike it’s predecessor The Pleasure Principle, Telekon had plenty of guitars, along with strings and lush synthesizer textures. While it was hard to follow up the previous release, Telekon proved to be hugely influential. Trent Reznor claimed to have listened to it every day during the making of Pretty Hate Machine. Telekon was originally released as a single album but being so long, it lost some of the dynamic range. This release is over four sides of vinyl and includes bonus singles, B-sides, alternate mixes and an out-take.

Upgrading an earlier two-fer CD that curiously omitted great swathes of both albums, the coupling of 1979's breakthrough Replicas and the 1978 demos that comprised The Plan is both chronologically and musically askance – one entire LP, Tubeway Army's eponymous debut, divided these two projects in time, and while it, too, barely hinted at the utter re-evaluation that Gary Numan would soon be making, the jolt would have been a lot less pronounced had some kind of internal logic been adhered to. No complaints, of course, about the bang for your buck. No less than 38 tracks are spread across the two discs, as the original 12-track The Plan and ten-song Replicas are joined by a wealth of bonus tracks, each offering up a full snapshot of Numan's activities at those particular points in time. The Plan adds three more of the demos that were recorded with the original LP's worth, then adds on the six songs recorded during sessions for the band's first two singles, on either side of the main attraction; Replicas is appended by half a dozen session outtakes, two of which were period B-sides.

In the U.S., Gary Numan is remembered as a one-hit-wonder, while back home in his native England, he continued to crank out hit after hit and became a superstar in the process. His icy space-age persona and sound may be forever associated with early-80's British new wave (Flock of Seagulls, early Duran Duran, etc.), but he was the originator, and today seems pretty darned original. Numan was a scholar of the David Bowie Ziggy Stardust-era, and used Bowie's space alien approach as a starting point. While retaining his futuristic lyrics, Gary stripped Ziggy's sound free of the distorted guitar riffing and posturing, and replaced it with clinical synthesizers and a standoffish stage persona. His music also gives off a paranoid vibe at times, as evidenced on the hits "I Die: You Die" and "Are 'Friends' Electric?" But Numan's songs can also sedate you ("Down in the Park"), while other times sneak up on you (the unexpected punk rocker "Bombers"). And of course there's his sole U.S. hit, "Cars," which sounds like a not so distant ancestor to fellow futuristic weirdos Devo.

It was an indicative situation for Numan's commercial fortunes at the time: A year after the Strange Charm album appeared to little attention outside his dedicated fan base, the Exhibition greatest-hits comp appeared, returning him to the charts with a remix of "Cars." Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth – and also riding a bit of a wave with his participation in the Radio Heart project – Numan took to the road, producing another live album with Ghost.
