Video & Competition: Are 'Friends' Electric?

Tubeway Army had a hit with this song (recorded here on the BBC's Old Grey Whistle Test) back in May 1979.

Amazing how fresh the song - which went to number one in the British charts - still sounds given how much music has passed under the bridge since then.

Gary Numan, Tubeway Army's lead singer, who wrote the song is still touring. He's performing in Edinburgh on Tuesday at the HMV Picture House.

We're running a competition for a pair of tickets to the show. Just answer the question below and send us your name and email address to
