“This is The Art of Noise, what did you expect” ?

It was the design of the Art of Noise picture discs that initially drew my attention to the group back in1985. The singles were pinned to the wall at Good Vibrations Record store in Belfast. Behind the counter of course was Mr Hooley who schooled an aspirational vandal in the world of Paul Morley and the significance of the group.

This ZTT podcast from 2006 features a number of juicy Art of Noise tidbits pertaining to the sleevenotes from the And What Have You Done With My Body, God? boxset. If youve ever wondered about the ‘sample source’ of the car ignition on Close to the Edit, listen up. If you ever enjoyed the Art of Noise, Paul Morleys imagery, the music or the affect they had on Hip-Hop, take a nosey at these clips.  The live set features some really nice freestyle piano on an extended Beatbox. #justsaying

We gonna do a song, that youve never heard before…

As well as dropping the most recent compilation of a long line of exclusives, Nova Scotias finest is back with more exclusives that you will only have heard before, if like Mr Bombay, you made them yourself.

Jorun displays care and attention and a canny ability to meticulously recreate instrumentals of classic tunes from the bare bones. He’ll take the original sample sources, breaks & bits and layer them til they are convincing enough to sound like they were legit b-sides on the original vinyl, except they werent.

Dont forget to check for his remixes of classics, remastered versions of unreleased tracks and of course, the follow up to the finest mix of 2012 [IMO].

Real heads had this off  Westwood back in the Denzils, but i ain’t never seen footage!!, Love the energy as people hear the punchlines for the first time..Finesse is clunky, but who really out there does it better..

Lordz of the Underground didn’t know who they were fuckin’ with, with that “yes, Mr funky-man”, those fellas better cut it out.
