REMIX COMPETITION WINNER ANNOUNCED
After hundreds of entries Gary Numan picked the TweakerRay (http://www.tweakerray.de) remix of ‘When The Sky Bleeds, He Will Come’ as the winner of Artocker Magazine’s Numan Remix Competition.
The remix will make its debut as part of the brand new download remix album, ‘Dead Moon Falling’, which will be available with the new Artrocker book ‘GARY NUMAN: NOW…and then’ –– hitting digital newsstands around the world for iPad, Kindle and Android users on Monday 26th November.
Talking about the remix, Numan says: “Piano break in the middle is fantastic, love that. Then it just builds, bigger second verse and a monster final chorus. This mix has such a great feel and the extra parts work perfectly. Very impressive.”
Big thanks to everyone who entered the competition.

BIG NOISE TRANSMISSION DELUXE EDITION BOOK/CD
Gary Numan will release a limited edition deluxe coffee table book/CD version of his new live album ‘Big Noise Transmission’ on August 20th 2012. Strictly limited to 500 copies, this beautifully designed Big Noise Transmission full colour hard-bound book & double CD will only be available through the Official Numan Store. Scaled in a large 300mm x 300mm format and printed on 200 gsm paper, all 48-pages feature the work of photographer Ed Fielding, who was given exclusive access to Gary Numan and the band on the 2011 Dead Son Rising tour.

BIG NOISE TRANSMISSION AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW
Gary Numan will release a new live CD, DVD and limited edition book/CD ‘Big Noise Transmission’ on August 20th 2012. Recorded at the HMV Ritz, Manchester in December 2011, ‘Big Noise Transmission’ features Numan and his band at their most intense, with the DVD’s aesthetics capturing the power, experimental textures and audio quality of the singer’s recent ‘Dead Son Rising’ album perfectly. Numan’s stage is blitzed with light – strobes being used like weapons for the set’s biggest anthems. At other times, everything fades, almost to blackout, with the viewer sucked into the darkness for a few moments before the heavy light-assault explodes into life again. Then cut to the images on the screen as each track is illustrated with slogans, graphics and burnt-out, degraded films. The atmosphere created by the audience is fantastic too, right from the opening classic ‘Down In The Park’ – a highlight for most artists’ sets – but for Numan, this is just the start. The set also features classic tracks such as ‘Films’, ‘Are ‘Friends’ Electric? and ‘I Die: You Die’. Dead Son Rising was a very special tour and Big Noise Transmission is a fantastic document of one of Numan’s finest shows.
‘Big Noise Transmission’ is available via the Official Numan Store in 3 formats – a 20-track PAL DVD; a deluxe, limited edition book with a double CD of the whole concert and also as a stand-alone double CD album.
All three formats are available for pre-order now on the Official Numan Store.
