This isn't Tubeway Army

This is The Klone Orchestra… which does covers. They do Joy Division, jimi hendrix etc while sounding very similar to the original recordings.

Future? This isn’t even accurately the past!

flagrantsake is correct: this is NOT Tubeway Army. However, it's not The Klone Orchestra, either. These songs are performed and recorded by a group formed from the 1979-1980 members of the Gary Numan Band, called Dramatis. This album was originally released in 1981 under the title, “For Future Reference” (Rocket Records, TRAIN 18, 1981).

This isn’t a reason not to listen to the album, though. Please read reviews of "The Dramatis Project" for more info about. Before you buy an album like this, however, do some research to find out if any of the Dramatis members are receiving royalties for the reissuing of their music.

Otherwise, the packaging tells you everything: another size 0 model in a sci-fi get-up, too pretty to exist in this post-apocalyptic world, and too frail even to be holding up this equipment. Puhleeze!

During a studio session a few months later, Numan began fiddling with a mini-Moog synthesizer that remained from another band's recording stint. Instantly falling in love with the instrument's capabilities, he decided...
