Song of the Day: "Splinter"

Gary Numan, he's not just a one-hit wonder, he's also a pioneer for electronic music (or so his Wikipedia entry would lead me to believe). Splinter (Songs from a Broken Mind) is his twenty-something-th album which means he probably didn't stop recording after "Cars."

Thanks to his discography and the series of tubes I'm able to listen to his 1987 single "Radio Heart" which we played back at the college radio station. Not all my stories are interesting. It's still a great single.

This track is ominous and brings to mind the recent Nine Inch Nails album.  I wonder if Trent cites Gary as an influence.
