Additional Information

Dramatis was made up of Gary's backing band from 1980. Their only album, "For Future Reference" was released in the mid 80's with guest vocals by Numan on one track, "Love Needs No Disguise". Gary popped down to visit Dramatis at Ridge Farm studios and liked the track the band had just recorded called 'Love Needs No Disguise'. Ironically, the lyrics were written about the time the band had spent touring with Gary. It wasn't really a Gary Numan project but it probably wouldn't have been signed if Dramatis hadn't been his band. The single "Love Needs No Disguise" reached No 33 in the UK charts. 

All in all a good Numan single from an unusual stage in his career.

Love Needs No Disguise Lyrics

Love Needs No Disguise 
(Single with Dramatis, 1981)

She dances, he watches, she sighs
Remember love needs no disguise

In motion that cannot deny
She's saying love needs no disguise

And if the park gates are closed
Remember we toured the skies
And if the 'friends' all go home
You know love needs no disguise

He dances and we realised
Remember love needs no disguise

In simple embraces they lie
In darkness love needs no disguise

And we can lock all the doors
Forget the reasons and fame
There's no deceiving inside
You know we'll all be the same

And if the park gates are closed
Remember we toured the skies
And if the 'friends' all go home
You know love needs no disguise

(Written by Dramatis)

Take Me Home 
(B-Side, 'Love Needs No Disguise', credited to Dramatis without Gary)

Take me home
Take me home
Take me home
Take me home
Take me home
(Written by Dramatis) 

Face To Face 
(Bonus track on 12" 'Love Needs No Disguise' [1981]
Also bonus track on 12" 'Sister Surprise' [1983], but called 'Letters')

What's it like to be face to face with me?
Playing tricks with hearts
Quite as young as yours
Do you know what the rent man
Pays for you?
Do you feel like I'm supposed to do?

I could be love
I could be your assassin

Pictures of my face disappear with time
They give boys to
Quite tasteless friends of mine
Re-arrange thoughts to
'What will be will be'
There is no God so pray to me
