Gary Numan / Cars

Although Gary Numan’s iconic synth-pop hit, Cars, was released in the summer of 1979, it would display enough staying power to become one of the biggest international hits of 1980. From his Lp, The Pleasure Principle, it remains a touchstone of the decade of excess, to this day.

Numan has continued to record over the years, and in 2021, released the album Intruder, on the BMG label.
