Meat Beat Manifesto's debut album, "Armed Audio Warfare" was scheduled for release in may 1988. The masters to that album were damaged in a fire at Meat Beat HQ, berwick st, soho. New tracks were written and recorded, then released as the double album "Storm the Studio" (SDX 040/CD) in may 1989. This album is a compilation of previously unreleased and rare tracks that embody the initial furore of Meat Beat's manifesto. Had "Armed Audio Warfare" been released as planned, it might have sounded like this.

It makes more sense listening to this CD, the psyche out 12" and then 99%... this is a work of art by itself.
