WHO’S AFRAID OF

THE ART OF NOISE?

(ZTT logo)

(continued)

this record includes moments in love, beat box, a time for fear and close (to the edit )…the music was compiled by the art of noise between February 28th 1983 and April 1st 1984…on April 2nd 1985 the art of noise had this to say: “our contemporaries irritate us. we detest the neighbour to our right. we detest the neighbour to our left. above all, we detest the one on the floor above us. just as much, anyway, as the one on the ground floor. (good heavens! we live on the ground floor ourselves!!!)”…the busy buzzing flies are of some use after all…sleeve design: xlajztt for the enjoyment of zang tuum tuum. zang tumb tumb’s musical director is trevor horn.

WHAT TO KNOW

Let us laugh with those we tickle…let us weep with those we expose to tear gas. Let us throw back our heads and laugh at reality, which is an illusion caused by mescalin deficiency; at sanity, which is an illusion caused by alcohol deficiency; at knowledge, which is an illusion caused by certain biochemical changes in the human brain stucture during the course of human evolution… Let us laugh at thought, which is a phenomenon like any other. At illusion, which is an illusion, which is a phenomenon like any other…

KNOW MORE

No further need to worry

WHAT TO CHANGE

Sex

WHAT TO CHARGE

A pound

WHAT IT IS

…it is the traditional task of the prophet to denounce systems of rule and life which deny the freedom of the flesh or the imagination

WHAT?

The Noise was realised by The ART OF NOISE. Electronic equipment was used for the compilation of this noise. Anne Dudley, Trevor Horn, J.J. Jeczalik and Gary Langan appeared to handle this equipment. Zang Tuum Tumb records were consulted. Oh, oh, oh it’s useful!

SING ALONG WITH THE ART OF NOISE (don’t be afraid)

A Time For Fear (Who’s Afraid)

now cry your heart out if you can over the ankles in snow and numb past pain
who’s afraid who is afraid
now there’s a funny thing
a time for fear who’s afraid
we’ll get used to it

(AON logo)

Beat Box (Diversion One)

you get to move on, see, do what I say
do this, don’t move
look lively when i say
say this, shut up
see, do what I say,
look lively[3]

(AON logo)

Memento

since last september I’ve been trying to describe
something that can be heard
you never know
you do not do

How To Kill

the fox drags its wounded belly[4]
the gorilla lay on his back[5]
russia and america cicle each other[6]
I have done it again

Who’s Afraid (Of The Art Of Noise)

what question will unmask…
reveal to me no more
than what I know of you
you bright disguises[9]

(AON logo)

Moments In Love

hours are a small thing
moments in love that drained
her that drained him[10]

Snapshot

but crocodile tears are what you cry[11]
who has the right?
and what else is wrong?

(AON logo)

Close (To The Edit)

your final breath
is in the air, pure white
and moving fast.[12]

oh to be in England[13]
the time is coming near
who’s afraid
