BUGGLES: On TV (Carrere) From the man they called Trevor Horn. In which a barnstormin stop-start syncopation de-Buggles the myth of television and all its cracked up to be. Some call it techno-pop. It boasts the biggest snare drum sound known to mankind and is crisp and crystal clear. Recorded August 1981 and quite probably a blueprint for the production techniques that surface on records he has made with Dollar, Philip Japp and a group called ABC. Be-jewelled with clarinet. Just remember the verb to buggle.
