Art Of Noise – Paranoia ’89 (US 12″)


artedA bit of a break from the Aussie stuff now with some more rare US 12’s from Mike. This originally came out in 86 with samples of current TV computer animated character, Max Headroom, all over it. Art Of Noise where trying to be less gimmicky so re-released it with a more dance floor friendly mix by Ben Liebrand, so Max had to go and so the cheesy female backing vocals. He does still mixes some of the old, classic Art Of Noise beats and noises but it’s quite a smooth and chilled remix. The Dub mix is very similar, I could hardly tell the difference. The bonus for me as a bit of an Art Of Noise Fan was hearing the refreshed “Dragnet 89” mix, given a more dance feel with a bouncing bass but maintaining those crazy samples and with some great added extras; a homage to the American cop shows of the 60’s and 70’s and , obviously, the film of the same name.

    Also do you have the tracks from the custom cdr that were offered with some copies of the Seduction of Claude Debussy? They were under 3 different titles like Bashful & A Pulse Of Beauty.

      I found the above tracks with the exception of these that also appeared on the Japanese Who’s Afraid reissue “A Time To Clear (Up)” & “Resonance” Anything help on these is appreciated.
