Format: New LP Label: Beggars Banquet Cat. No. BBQLP7 Barcode: 607618000714 Released: 16/10/15
Standard black vinyl that has been cut from high-resolution digital files (96 khz / 24 bit transfers from the analog master tapes) by award-winning engineer John Dent at loud mastering. 'Replicas' is the second and final album by Gary Numan and Tubeway Army and was originally released in 1979. It was the first album in what Numan referred to as the 'machine' phase of his career, which these three albums comprise. The song 'Are Friends' Electric?' was a surprise number one UK hit single and this album was a huge breakthrough. 'Replicas' began as a concept album, based on a book that Numan never completed about a futuristic metropolis where androids with cloned human skin called 'Machmen' team up with machines to keep citizens controlled under fear and force.
