Rock n' Roll Inventions (documentary)

Watching this one on CBS All Access at the moment, pretty good. (they got Gary Numan, so I'm a little biased).

That looks like good fun. I'm going to see if I can get it through DirecTV.

Yeah, I signed up for CBS to binge the latest Star Trek: Discovery. This one is through the "Smithsonian Channel", whatever that is. Hopefully you can find it free somewhere. Saw about 3 or 4 episodes last night.

In the grunge daze, Gary Numan was kinda a punchline, along with mebbe Thos. Dolby.

But when he re-invented/expanded with Reznor, I became a big fan.

His last 3-4 records are terrific.

Then I went back and got I, Assassin, the one with Pino - respect. (That one made me go and get Paul Young ...)

And yep, that Star Trek reboot is pretty good.

Sorry for the OT ramble.

Look for his punk era stuff, came out under an album called "The Plan" (I see it on youtube but not Spotify).
Pleasure Principle is still my favorite, he's had a lot of great fretless bass players (Mick Karn on several songs on "Dance").
