Art Of Noise

I think these are outstanding and seminal bits of music.


I was a bit slow to find AoN, I only found them a few years ago via an interview my pal Gail Worley did.

Yes! And also Moments in Love.

Funny enough that one is playing on my iTunes right now.

It's also the top hit on youboobs. And I had it put up, but I have a closer relationship with the other two, so I ended with those.

I keep forgetting to check out there newer stuff. Of course we had the 12" single of "Close to the Edge" back in the day, and my current fave tracks are surprisingly "Yebo!" and "Dan Dare". Previously I would have leant towards Opus 4 and Ode to Don Jose.

Shamefully the only CD's I have are Below the Waste, Who's Afraid, In No Sense? Nonsense and The Ambient Collection.

I've kinda left AON and Kraftwerk in my past, but have re-kindled my Tangerine Dream and added Einsturzende Neubauten to the mix.

Not a big Dream fan, but Neubauten is kewl.
I only found AoN through an interview done by my galpal Gail Worley:

So you do know Anne Dudley:-

Composed the music for Jeeves and Wooster.
Won an Oscar for "The Full Monty".

As for TD, depends which vintage, the old stuff - 68 to 72 - does not work for me, their Virgin and Jive years I like, but then I went off them shortly after Optical Race. Only saw them once back in 91.

ENB I like their ballads, but some of their angst ridden industrial work is too extreme for me.
