The electro-pop pioneer’s finest moments are being reissued next month.

Three of Gary Numan’s classic albums – 1979’s Replicas (released as Gary Numan + Tubeway Army and containing his breakthrough hit ‘Are Friends Electric?’) and The Pleasure Principle, and 1980’s Telekon – will return to vinyl on October 16 through The Arkive.

The reissues come on standard black vinyl and have been cut from high-resolution digital files by engineer John Dent at Loud Mastering. Replicas and The Pleasure Principle are single LPs and Telekon is a double LP.

In the meantime, Numan has lined up a series of autumn concerts in Los Angeles and London where he’ll perform the albums in full, with limited edition coloured vinyl versions also available at those dates.
