Gary Numan "I Am Dust" Video Review

56 going on 80

56 going on 80

Oh Gary. .. what are we to do with you?  When you were safest of all in your car all those decades ago you were a wanna be alien.  You were like David Bowies 2nd cousin twice removed and you were pretty cool. A nifty industrialized sound well ahead of the curve.  And then well things got quiet.

You’re back and you’re making a few tactical errors.  First, the hair dye, its gotta go.  Bring it down a shade or so cuz you look like a powdered drag queen and it accentuates your jowly aged appearance. Ya aint that old but you’re looking nearly horror humor and its an easily fixed faux pas.

I think he may be headed up the old man Goth trail with Marilyn Manson who also isn’t aging well in this new video titled “I Am Dust”, not dust really more like powder puss as I’ve stated earlier.

First- the tune.  Is awesome with nice deep industrialized noise that rattles the core.  Enough electronics to keep it interesting and Numans voice is nice and steady.  Hitting those odd tones with enough crackle to sound eerie.

The video is utter garbage and I hope there wasn’t much coin invested in it.  Honestly its the discarded entrails of a Manson vid with just enough generic imagery to be so cliche its ridiculous.  Gary you look like hell even in that lighting its simpy the blue black hair it doent work after age 30, set it free my dear.  Much like Johnny Marr who for some reason things this black hair is signature you both look like parodies.  Old men hiding the grey.. quit it.

Again great tune- crap vid
