Honestly, I hadn’t heard too much of Combichrist’s catalogue but what I had heard, I did like. Add to the fact that they were a highly visual act, which would hopefully make for some cool shots, that left me in high anticipatory mode for the show! Oh yeah, I’m easily excitable!
A few days before the gig I prepared somewhat, looking over some YouTube videos of the band just to see exactly where they all stood and what sort of choreography I could expect. As far at YouTube clips go – yeah, they looked totally cool so I got a feel for what I would expect tonight.

The Pleasure Principle
The anticipation for this gig had been extremely high from the get go! Several months ago when the fine folk at Red Ant Touring announced the dates, I was already psyched!
Gary Numan was one of the first gigs I got to shoot when I began this venture into this thing known as ‘rock and roll photography’, and I remember just how much of an amazing gig that was. Every so often a gig comes along that just enwraps itself into every synapse of your mushy brain, and that Numan show from 2009 was certainly one of them!

Are Friends Electric?
It’s unfortunate but when it comes to the career and music of Gary Numan, all that most people know of the man is the sporadic hits he had in the late 70′s and early 80′s. Granted that these hits were absolute classic tunes that helped define a fledgling genre and inspire many ‘Electronic’ and ‘Industrial’ artists. Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails proudly wears the Numan influence on his sleeve and has covered the Numan classic ‘Metal’ in the past.
