“Syyn Labs, the folks who created the Rube Goldberg machine for OK Go’s “This Too Shall Pass” video, recently did a commercial for DieHard featuring Gary Numan performing his classic song “Cars” on actual cars (their tuned horns), playing them like a piano, all powered by a single DieHard battery. We were intrigued and asked them to tell us how they did it. They sent us this behind the scenes video. The commercial is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4YsMV… You can read an article about the making of the commercial and the tech they used here:
Following Recoil’s recent US leg tour announcement, we got word that the gig taking place at The Metro in Chicago on 26th October will be a double bill featuring both Recoil and Gary Numan. Numan and his band will be performing his classic “The Pleasure Principle” album in full. Also on the bill for that evening is Architect. Tickets are available from the following outlet (www.etix.com) and are already on sale. Tickets for several other shows can be purchased at Ticketmaster.
Gary Numan lends his person and most famous composition to Sears for an inspired commercial about the latest DieHard battery. Utilizing a two-octave Car Keyboard, Numan “plays” his famed ’80s hit on tuned car horns. Although, he looks miserable throughout, he’s probably laughing on the inside…all the way to the bank.
Some nice friday music news:
Gary Numan is set to perform his 1979 album “The Pleasure Principle” (Numan’s first album under his own name) in full on his upcoming North American tour. Kicking off in Orlando, Florida on October 17, Numan will perform the album in its entirety, plus songs from his upcoming new album “Splinter”. It will be Numan’s first North American tour since 2006.
Portishead have announced that they are about to begin work on a new album which will be the follow-up to 2008′s “Third”. The news was confirmed by the group’s Geoff Barrow on BBC 6 Music adding that the band would start writing for the LP this summer.
I can´t imagine why the US guys wouldn’t like this
In 1982, American-based 7-UP got in touch with a UK agency to get a 30 second tune made by someone who was “happening” at the time to advertise their drink. So the agency contacted Gary and offered a £10,000 deal so he recorded 3 pieces of music with lyrics supplied by them. When the recordings were sent to the Americans they had not heard any music like this, and they were expecting something in a punk style as that had just arrived over there so these recordings were never used.
