GARY & HUGH

Gary Numan and Hugh Nicholson first worked together on the single 'Radio Heart' which, when released, became a BBC Radio 1 Playlist Chartbuster remaining in the UK Top Thirty singles chart for six weeks. The unique vocals of Gary accompanied by the thunderous rythmns of the band Radio Heart caught the media by surprise with the single quickly becoming an airplay hit across Europe and the USA . The follow up singles 'London Times' and 'All Across The Nation' also entered the UK singles chart.
In 1993 Hugh wrote 'Like A Refugee (I Won't Cry)' which was played to Gary in his dressing room prior to his concert performance at Birmingham Town Hall. On hearing the song and viewing a video of the masked percussionists Dadadang of Bergamo, Italy, Gary arranged to record his vocals the following day at Westside Studios in London. The engineer working with Hugh and brother David on this project was Danton Supple, currently Coldplays' producer.
'Like A Refugee (I Won't Cry)' was released in the UK and Europe to critical acclaim.
