It's been an amazing couple of years for Gary Numan, returning to form as a recording artist and back in the public gaze as one of the revered greats of Pop. Artrocker editor-in-chief Tom Artrocker has conducted a series of interviews with Gary since April 2012, discussing the past, present and future of the King of Synth. No stone is left unturned. Tom also spoke to co-producer Ade Fenton, members of Gary's present band as well as former alumni, Gary's merch man of many years. For this App Artrocker commissioned photographer, and former male super-model Keith Martin to take a series of new photos of Gary, his crew and fans. The result is nearly 200 brand new, never before seen photos. Embedded in the app are a dozen interview videos, on subjects as diverse as 'Cars' and moving to the USA. Buyers are given access to an EXCLUSIVE DOWNLOAD ALBUM; Gary's last album Dead Son Rising remixed in it's entirety. Gary talks about his recent return to prominence, moving to America, writing, recording, producing and performing, future plans, the next album... even the make of car he'll be driving around LA. Gary discusses how it all began, the first fateful meeting with a synthesiser, riding the instant rocket to fame, the come down, the lost years and the fight back. We have nearly 100 flyers, programmes, back stage passes, photos from the period and vintage magazine covers. This is an App that will appeal to Numanoids, synth-poppers and music fans of all ages. All Hail King Gary. All Hail Artrocker.
