This 5LP boxed set completes the Machine series started in 1978 and includes Telekon as a double album and Living Ornaments ‘81 as a 3LP set. The five discs are packed in a stark black box with the iconic 2 red parallel belts printed in a gloss red.

Living Ornaments ‘81 was recorded on the last night at Wembley Arena on April 28th, this was Numan’s finale, his farewell to live performance having made this decision during the making of the ‘Telekon’ album.

It brought to an end the final MACHINE installment of his career. The lavish stage sets had featured in the 1979 and 1980 tours which were previously released as 2LP boxed sets in the Living Ornaments Series.

Living Ornaments 1981 is remastered and spread across 3 discs. Each album is pressed on 180g vinyl and comes in heavyweight single sleeves with new artwork and inners bags.

The songs from the show cover a whole period from ‘Are Friends Elec- tric’, ‘Down In The Park’, to ‘Cars’ and ‘I Die You Die’, ‘We Are Glass’ aswell as the future single ‘She’s Got Claws’ from his next album ‘Dance’.This concert is considered to be, by many fans and critics alike, one of Numans most charismatic live performances.

Telekon is again remastered from the original analogue tapes and is released for the very first time as a DOUBLE ALBUM. The original album was only released as a single disc in a value-for money move which also excluded the two singles ‘We Are Glass’ and ‘I Die: You Die’.

Pressed on 180g vinyl the 2LP set is packaged in TWO brand new single album sleeves just for this boxed edition, plus newly designed inner bags, it also reunites the album with those two singles ‘We Are Glass’ and ‘I Die: You Die’.

Originally released in September 1980, the album was Gary Numan’s third successive No1 album in the UK. Following the stark Pleasure Principle, Telekon is densely atmospheric and oplulent sounding, in- corporating a wide range of synthesisers as well as viola, violin and Satie-like piano.

The title track a particularly dark amalgamation of Bowies ‘Aladdin Sane’ and Numans own android exotica, is followed by the funkier ‘Remind Me To Smile’ which shows Numans ability to write a big pop chorus.

This period also saw the unveiling of probably his most iconic ‘boiler suited’ look, which featured in all the photo shoots with elements in- corporated into the album and single art. The 2 parallel red belts would go on to be synonymous with Numaniods.

The whole album took on a dark and intense feeling, an artist strug- gling with disappointment, paranoia, confusion and screaming out for change. Earlier in August I Die: You Die was released as a single, which was beautifully anthemic. A very pretty circular melody scratched with guitars, earpiercing electronic sounds and a vindictive lyric aimed squarely at the media.
