To those of you salivating over the improbable return of this wild bunch, I humbly apologise… the Art of Noise are back, yes – in my repertoire! Funny how the memories of two decades ago suddenly propel you into the future in such a convincing way. The fairlight and its primitive samples certainly bring back memories, but they bring back more … In a way they are what has been missing lately: a paradigm shift, into a universe that is self-contained, the opposite of the virus of hybridity that we all seem to have caught by now.
This is an allegory of a worn-out 12″ picture disc. And these are good times, indeed.
