‘Tick Tickety Boom!’ isn’t all doom and gloom, but it is very much an album that holds a mirror to the social, political and musical landscape.
by Christopher Nosnibor
“Tick Tickety Boom!” is a celebration of sorts, in Clinker’s own unique way. Which, truth be told Polyanna, is really the way of the world.

6 Jun 2014, 9:26 de DrMojoRisingCome sundown on the final day of May, 2014, a devout congregation of Numanites amassed at the Metro Theatre in Sydney, Australia to embrace one of the seminal creators of the synthpop genre.
Athough Gary Numan is venerated as a synthpop deity, the omnipotent energy unleashed by the guitars was an unexpected surprise. In conjunction with the synthesiser squall, the overstressed reverberations from the electric strings (it woulda left many a hard rock act wincing) was something only to be felt, literally; the bombastic boom resonating through everyones bones at times was enough to rouse a comatose mortal or even the deceased. The sheer sonic energy of the show was mind-blowing and left me stunned, yet enraptured. The one big pop hit from the '80s he performed, "Cars" (I haven't actually listened to the track in years), packed so much punch, it as disparate as comparing your wildest masturbatory fantasy to the real deal. Even now, I still have no inclination to listen to the song through my high-end audio system 'cause I know it simply cannot emulate the live incarnation of the tune. Belying his years, Gary Numan is also the consummate artiste. I've experienced acts playing music out of their prime merely to bestow funds for their pension plans. But Numan's impassioned sedulity to his stage craft is perspicuous (see the one crappy photo I salvaged from my iPhone which at least captures the spirit of the show)! His undying love for playing it up to his aficionados is a wonderment and Numan's gestic gallivanting on stage was akin to a feline slinking about, seducing us with his wiles. And not to be overshadowed, the concinnity of the light show intertwined with the auditory buzz buffeting us was befitting of his electronic roots and was indeed conducive to inducing an epileptic seizure.
Being somewhat the casual Numan devotee; only owning but a single compilation CD, my biggest disappointment of the eve was I hadn't explored his oeuvre sufficient to appreciate the gig to it's utmost. Nonetheless, if you're a diehard Numan fan or casual interloper, the concert was a stunning spectacle to be savoured at least once in a lifetime. If you prejudice Numan's melismata as being beyond your predilections, just open your mind to allow your visual and auditory senses to be stimulated to orgasm: just experience an intoxicating concert. If opportunity to witness one of his concerts is ever within reasonable reach... hey, don't vacillate; don't procrastinate… just fucking go! You'll be raving 'bout it to your friends for time immemorial.
Not wanting to spoil the show for anyone who hasn't experienced it yet, but as an addendum for anyone interested, the playlist for the performance follows below.Song Playlist for Gary Numan's Concert
