Additional Information

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.. 

Like A Refugee Lyrics

Like A Refugee (I Won't Cry) 
(Single with Dadadang, 1994)

Treat it like a refugee
Never seems to be in place for me
In my mind there is a scene I see
My house is burning
No-one returning
To a land once free

Dreaming like a deportee
Cast away upon the open sea
No hand of friendship for the likes of me
I feel the thunder
I'm going under
And I can't get free

If there is a heaven
I don't wanna hang around this hell
Nanana, nanana...

If there is a heaven
I can be an angel till I fell
They'd throw me out of heaven back to hell
And I sleep

I won't cry
I won't cry

Bagpipe solo!!!

Carry me away from here
Cut the crying and the scene from tear?
Make emotions disappear
My life is changing
I'm rearranging
Everything I fear

I won't cry
No more tears
I won't cry
I won't cry

(Written by Hugh Nicholson)
