Into Battle With The Art Of Noise – (12″)

artofWhen I was little (in the Blogo-sphere) I used to disguise file names in case “The Man” would come and shut me down. It was slightly edgy back in the day and HE did come a-knocking a few times. DMCA take-down notices were something dreaded, so much so that I can’t show my face on Blogger!

So the point is I’ve lost files. Renaming obscure files and then retrieving them years later has been a ball-ache. People request stuff, I see the sleeve,I know I have it, look at the crates of records, but finding the original file……ummmmmmm! So apologies to the Art Of Noise fans for not delivering in a re-uppy fashion, I will look and probably re-record said tracks.

So Bonus Time. The very first release from AON from 1983, snapped this up when I saw it winking at me in the box the other week.

Raw versions of the “Hits”, sounding quite bare and minimal. I have it on remastered CD but what is the point. Hearing back then I would be picking my brain from the ceiling. As it should, would be heard. RAW almost jarring in terms of listening it all those  33 years ago!

Recording on 2 tracks (Side 1 & 2) (Can’t be arsed editing it!)
