ART OF NOISE 'Beat Box' (Zang Tumb Tuum)
Chris: I thought Paul Morley was a writer, so I don't know what he's been doing in all the videos. You know they say that if you give five monkeys typewriters they'd come out with Shakespeare in the end? They would probably come up with this if they were given Linn Drums and synthesizers. Mike Reid would definitely ban it.
All these drums give an impression that the record's good. The piano at the end's good —maybe it's Paul Morley.
Lee: It's good for club DJs. The rest of the record should have had more of the piano. One of the Stiff accountants really likes this.
