Further remixes will be announced soon along with the chance to buy a high  definition24/96 FLAC download of the album. Art Of Noise are not a band and never were. They have always been an organization; a distinctly non-rockist creative, post-modernist collective. Starting out as a Trevor Horn led experimental studio outfit, the primary contributors were; Royal College Of Music graduate, Anne Dudley, producer/arranger J.J. Jeczalik and songwriter, instrumentalist and engineer/producer Gary Langan. Ex-NME writer Paul Morley contributed ideas and delivered the bands non-image to the press and media.

Art Of Noise were unleashed on an unsuspecting public in 1983 with the debut vinyl EP ‘Into Battle With Art Of Noise’, which won admirers in the pop and dance markets. Dazzling production from Horn created a post-rock soundscape that melded hip-hop beats with studio trickery, tape-splicing and more than a little humour. A special Classic Album Sundays event with Trevor Horn is set to take place in the autumn with more details on this being announced soon. The campaign can be joined here
