J. Jeczoli. ~ Bil Carpenter Anne Dudley, Gary Lanagan, and J. J. Jeczalik were members of producer Trevor Horn's in-house studio band in the early 80s before they formed Art of Noise, a techno-pop group whose music was an amalgam of studio gimmickry, tape splicing, and synthesized beats. After earning a cult following in the latter half of the 80s (as well as scoring two Top 40 hits) the Art of Noise broke up in 1990. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, ---------- Related Artists ----------- Buggles Horn, Trevor Frankie Goes to Hollywood KLF, The ---------- Roots & Influences ---------- Kraftwerk Spector, Phil Buggles, The AMG Artist ID # : P000003575 Chronological Album List |Date| Label | Number |R S T|Rating --------------------------------+----+----------+--------+-----+------ Art of Love |1990|Audio Visu|23 | T| Ambient Collection |1990|Polydor |843403 | T| Good Yebo! |1989|Audio Visu|18 | T| Paranoimia '89 |1989|Audio Visu|14 | T| Paranoimia |1989|Atlantic |62386 | T| Good Below the Waste |1989|Polydor |839404 | T| Good Kiss |1988|Audio Visu|11 |R T| BestA Best of the Art Of Noise, The |1988|Polydor |837367 |R T|+BestA In Visible Silence |1987|China |835806 | S T| Good In No Sense?
