Notes

2008 Japanese reissue of the 2006 compilation.

4 CD hardbound digi-book set including 56 tracks, 41 previously unreleased with 36 page booklet containing track-by-track commentary by all five original members.

Tracks 1-15, 3-12 and 4-16 are not listed on the packaging; titles taken from digital download version.

CD1: "The Very Start of Noise" - early demos and tests.
CD2: "Found Sound & Field Trips" - experimental recordings.
CD3: "Who’s Afraid of… Goodbye?" - alternate recordings from the Who's Afraid album, and final ZTT-era tracks.
CD4: "Extended Play" - rare EPs originally relased on cassette, including Into Battle With Art Of Noise (tracks 4-1 to 4-9), That Was Close (track 4-10) and, ostensibly, almost the complete The Tortoise And The Hare (tracks 4-11 to 4-13; "Beatbox (Diversion Ten)" has been omitted) - as well as a pair of B-sides. Unfortunately, track 4-12, "Love Beat" is not the cassette version, which has no spoken part at its beginning.

"This 'Ars Nova' edition is number six in Zang Tumb Tuum's artefact series, previously hidden away as number 102 in the Incidental Series."

Book foreword (edited):
"1983 to '85, when these early sessions took place, was an intense period. The finished recordings have become ubiquitous - and are regularly re-sampled and referenced by artists as diverse as Janet Jackson and The Prodigy - but the demos, alternative mixes and studio experiments, the very genesis of the Art Of Noise, have never been heard since. Did they even exist? It was thought not. After all, Trevor Horn has a reputation for not saving anything if a recording session doesn't work out - if you change course, erase the tapes and move on. 'Don't look back'.

But Zang Tuum Tumb went on a search. Into the vaults of London's recording studios - Sarm East, Sarm West, Angel Studios, Utopia and Mayfair, all of which hosted these early sessions. Tomb Raiders of the Lost Ark, Zang Tumb Tuum was on a mission… and struck gold. The complete Art Of Noise sessions, 1983 to 1985, as presented here, for the first time, never before heard or released."

Recorded at various studios including Sarm East, Sarm West, Angel, Utopia, Air and on location. Recorded and mastered on Ampex Precision Magnetic Tape. Transferred from 0.5" and 0.25" analogue using Prism ADA converters at FX Copyroom. Digitally remastered at Heathmans Mastering, London.
