ZANG TUMMM TUMB ARTICLES “the first draft of history”

Art of Noise: ‘Beat Box (ZTT ZTIS 108) Despite topping Americas dance chart and being incredibly influential the original 108bpm version of this Trevor Horn exercise in hip hop was largely ignored here — to British DJs everlasting shame. Now its been totally remixed and revamped into two new “diversions”, even more imaginiatively freaky, the 108½bpm Diversion One ending with acoustic piano while the 107bpm Two incorporates what sounds like a cars ignition system! Especially if youve rushed out to buy Depeche Mode and Scritti Politti, hear these plus the original and be amazed.
