My Electric Friends Drove CARS

LISTEN

Tubeway Army were a London-based punk rock and new wave band led by lead singer Gary Numan. They were the first band of the post-punk era to have a synthesizer-based hit, with their single “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?” and its parent album Replicas both topping the UK Album Chart in mid-1979. “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?” was also the only song released by Tubeway Army to be a hit single, making the band technically a one-hit wonder, leaving them today off most one-hit lists. Although the core of the band kept working with Numan on his subsequent releases, the success of Gary Numan’s own name in fact overshadowed the band.
