<B>1984</B> must be some kind of gimmick, because this is one huge adaptation of <I>The Art Of Noise</I>’s 1983 release <I>Beat Box</I>, including ultra sec drum computer, environmental noises, orchestral components and even the voice samples. New Order’s gunning beat salvo from <I>Blue Monday</I> seems to be sampled in somewhere too and I can’t help but hearing some <I>Indeep</I> riff on the last overscratched track too. I’m sure others will discover other tunes apart from those mentioned and since all this has nothing to do with <I>Bill Laswell</I> nor <I>Buckethead</I> nor with the later work from <B>Praxis</B>, this must be some kind of joke. Were they taking a piss here on all those emerging catchy eighties tunes? Who will tell, it certainly is absolute fun!
