ZANG TUMMM TUMB ARTICLES “the first draft of history”

ART OF NOISE — Island/Atco 0-96974 — Producers: Art Of Noise — List: 6.98

The 12-incher “Beat Box” is already on its way to becoming a minor dance-floor classic; here then, now, are more tracks via this 45 rpm EP. Multi-mood synth instrumentals with varying beats and synth vocals with varying lyrical intent abound here. Dancing comes easy enough but dissection of mood and message demand one stop and listen much closer. Art Of Noise is as scary as a walk in space or as spirituaily uplifting as the Renaissance painting on the cover. Very challenging material very well produced which demands and deserves to be very well received.
