    The first Art of Noise album, Who's Afraid of the Art of Noise? was released in 1984. During this period, the group presented themselves as faceless (using masks, minimal personal appearances, or even absence from promotion to indicate that the Art of Noise was not a standard rock or pop band which promoted and mythologised its members as individuals). Band member Anne Dudley in an interview: "There's a very big risk in America because they think we're black; we were voted the second best new black act. We are wondering how we can quite cope with this."

    Founded in 1983, Art Of Noise initially presented themselves as a faceless techno-pop group. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYiiMS1s-0c

    Track from the first Art of Noise LP, aptly titled (Who's Afraid Of?) The Art of Noise. This track was the highest charting single off the LP, peaking at No. 8 on the UK Charts. Similar the band's hit "Beat Box" from a year earlier.
