That’s Too Bad 7” single (1978)

At this stage of his career Numan (born Gary Webb) had not yet found his future stage name and called himself ‘Valerian’; his band mates Paul Gardiner (‘Scarlett’) and Jess Lidyard (‘Rael’) also used assumed names. Webb’s compositional credits on the original vinyl single were under the Valerian pseudonym as well. The back of the original vinyl single’s sleeve contained two discrepancies: Valerian was spelt ‘Valeriun’; and the band picture featured live drummer Bob Simmonds, not Jess Lidyard who actually played in the recording session.
