Title: Visible Silence

ART OF NOISE: VISIBLE SILENCE
Channel 5, 60 mins, £9.99

Introduced by M-M-M-M-M-Max Headroom, Visible Silence was shot during last year’s Hammersmith Odeon show and features more of the outfit’s more popular numbers to date.

Peter Gunn (the one with Duanne Eddy), Close To The Edit and Paranoimia stand out as musical highlights while, in terms of visuals, it’s actually a lot more exciting than you might expect.

Produced and directed by Mike “Supersonic” Mansfield, it’s good to see a 1970’s’ dry-ice merchant having a real crack at computer graphics without making an utter pig’s ear of the whole proceedings.
