The Pleasure Principle

The Pleasure Principle by Gary Numan
Released: Jun 1979
Label: Beggars Banquet
The Pleasure Principle is the album most Americans equate with this new wave innovator, specifically the song "Cars," which was a moderate hit on the radio and, more significantly, a heavily-rotated video on the then-fledgling MTV network. Nobody plays new wave robo-funk like Numan, and his early records remain, to this day, archetypal post-Bowie synth rock.
