Art of Noise was a cult experimental-new wave group from London, England. Influenced by the likes of Kraftwerk and Yellow
Magic Orchestra, Art of Noise's quirky style garnered a large international underground following throughout the 1980's. They are
best remembered for the singles "Close (To the Edit)" and "Paranoimia", the latter featuring popular 80's television personality
Max Headroom. Art of Noise originally disbanded in 1990, but reformed temporarily from 1998 until 2000.
