About Me


So who am I? BasicJ has been my handle in Numan circles since I started this site, otherwise I'm known as The Manitou (the name under which I create music). My real name though, is Joshua Blanc. Pleased to meet ya.

I've been a fan of Numan's music since 1995, when I found a copy of The Pleasure Principle in my Uncle's loft. I've been collecting steadily since then: vinyl, CD's, cassettes, posters, you name it. I have time for anything Numan produces, even his oft-spited early-nineties albums get played now and then. I have to say though, that as much as I love all his music, his new stuff really hits the spot.

I don't have as much time these days to work on this site, but I'd always planned to keep it here as a repository for information, images, etc... so I hope that you find the updates to your liking when they do come along.
