jt's tip to numan

Might not be the best place to ask this but it's worth a try. I heard 'T42' (nice double entendre there!) for the first time the other day and really enjoyed it, especially the track 'Gabe' which has a bass line and synth parts very reminiscent of Tubeway Army's/Gary Numan's 'Are friends electric?' (especially the newer renditions I've heard played live) Is this a subtle tip of the hat or a complete coincidence? Best wishes and success with DD 2.0

"A less than subtle tip of the hat. Michael Railton, the keyboardist on the song had toured with Gary Numan. He started playing the line from'Are Friends Electric' for fun. I liked it so we decided to leave it in. john"
