Of course, the alluring promise of such environments' communal autonomy and difference - experienced as Slowcar To China - Terre Thaemlitz - Replicas Rubato highly internalized and personal reaction against 'normality' - is reliant upon denying the influence of dominant cultural Slowcar To China - Terre Thaemlitz - Replicas Rubatoeven if operating in rejection to such norms.
For example, sporting an entire leather ensemble is as much a defiant statement of impracticality as an allusion to conventional notions of kink, danger and ruggedness. Once again, the larger contexts which produce difference remain vague and fluid. In Numan's music, then, the use of deviant narratives emerges as an extension of his childhood understanding that one is different, while only being able to engage such an understanding through expressing a desire to become different.
It wasn't until his release, Danceat a time when Numan found himself pressed by demands for commercial success and the media's conflicting and bizarre accounts of his own identity, that questions about his context of production became a regular fixture in his narrative fictions.
As one might construe from the above-quoted Slowcar to ChinaNuman had a growing awareness that his alienation from "the things he overheard" about himself in the media was related to a process of The Hustle - Marah - Sooner Or Later In Spain (DVD, Album) in his own modus operandi which was "best left unheard," troubling and dangerously unconscious: the possibility that his fixation with bearing witness to experiences of depravity was operating in response to an unconscious core assumption of his disassociation from such experiences.
A disassociation which bore the horrifying implications of a dominant middle-class morality that is defined by the individualist Slowcar To China - Terre Thaemlitz - Replicas Rubato of its own order in relation to the visible disorder of the lower classes - the very morality Numan felt distanced from since youth. In relation to matters of sexuality, then, Numan's fixation with sexual deviance becomes closeted by the ideological underpinnings of his fierce individualism. A conventional reaction to such a moment of recognition is Existential crisis - the secret weapon of the status quo causing a paralysis of perspective and feeling all attempts at personal expression are foiled by their own construction.
Attempts to uncover the truth of one's own difference only results in the shame of implication in dominant cultural ideologies which order our desires for difference. In search of a truth of essenceeach claim of deviance becomes a potential lie of essence to oneself and others.
Numan's fascination with this perpetual betrayal Slowcar To China - Terre Thaemlitz - Replicas Rubato the self and others sets the cold tone of his recordings, and sits at the center of his career-spanning obsession with lying, from "He may be lying I can't tell" in 's My Shadow In Vainto the most recent "So I moved like a rumour, Like a glorious lie" in 's The Alien Cure. It is the recognition of this undesired process of self-erasure underlying Numan's works which has shed insight into the dual-edged role Somebody Dance With Me (Italian Mix) - DJ BoBo - Dance With Me shame in validating and 'closeting' identifications with my own Queerness, and which I find more insightful than any readings of Numan's narratives taken individually and at face value.
However, behind their thin veil of sci-fi robotics, the images portrayed in the narratives themselves provide informative documentation of Great Britain's policing of social deviance and Gay male desire during the late s and early s.
During the s, Great Britain as with most Western nations found itself in the midst of yet another sex panic. Culture was once again at the crossroads of decay, as seen in Slowcar To China - Terre Thaemlitz - Replicas Rubato symptoms as Glam's Slowcar To China - Terre Thaemlitz - Replicas Rubato with gender-blending Slowcar To China - Terre Thaemlitz - Replicas Rubato Ambisexuality.
In particular, the visibility of Gay male sexuality and cruising in public parks became a target of violent police actions aimed at entrapping and arresting Gay men. Numan's use of "they" and "them" as terms of both association and opposition which I associate with "police" and "Gay men" respectively conveys an environment of suspicion, deceit and self-fear which for many men plagued all Gay interactions.
The theme of police entrapment appears in several other songs as well, but perhaps none more overtly than the hit, Praying To The Aliens :. Amidst the policing, however, there was one form of cruising which Numan favored as 'safest of all':. And, much to my own disappointment and continued surprise, I have yet to encounter a thorough analysis of Cars as a portrayal of soliciting a drive-by hand Zipparella - Various - Organ Radio 13 Four Slices Just Because. or blow job if you like - territory for discussion which seems particularly fertile given the song's ascension into history through disco culture.
Whereas Numan's narratives lay claim to numerous sexual identities, discussions of his music have typically neutralized the narratives' relationships to specific Queer communities by ignoring them all together. Praying to the Aliens. Showcar to China.
