New On The Charts


Art Of Noise is a studio foursome led by producer Trevor Horn whose ZTT/Island effort “Beat Box” is pulsing its way up the Black Singles chart to 69. The name Art Of Noise justifies itself upon first listen as their sound unfolds into lush percussive layers.

The rest of the Noise-makers are Anne Dudley, John Jenezalik and Gary Langhan, who collectively have worked with a varied list of artists including Jimmy The Hoover, Malcolm McLaren and Spandau Ballet.

“Beat Box” is taken from the groups “Into Battle” album, produced by Horn.

Art Of Noises label contact is Ellen Smith at Island Records, 14 E. 4th St., New York, N.Y. 10012; (212) 477-8000.
