    This is is SUCH a great track – one of my lifelong loves! They never really released CD singles from the Invisible Silence era, so I have never had the chance to hear the mixes and B sides from Legs, Legacy, Paranoia and Peter Gunn digitally. To have it (and the B side!) in this quality is astounding, like hearing it for the first time. Thank you, Paul!

    I don’t think it peaked at number 6 in the UK, don’t think it even made the top 40

    Paul, truly you touch upon so many great things when you post. Just recently, the New Wave Outpost mentioned Art Of Noise and the China album reissues which haven’t yet come to fruition, but here is a post that is most welcome. I love AON and love this song. Whoa and WOW WEE!! You’ve made me very happy and put me into an euphoric state.

    As I’ve said before, I was so obsessed with AoN when I was little. Haven’t heard this for quite a while. I don’t recall how Hoops and Mallets goes, but I know I will recognise it instantly when I hear it. Thanks!

    Do you have the remix 12″ Paul, the one with the ostrich on the front? I have them both in a box somewhere, but where!??

    Don’t remember it getting in the charts either? Was it No.6 in the Indie Chart perhaps?

    It was actually #69 Jermajesty I made a typo. Sorry don’t have the other mix at this time 🙂

  7. Jon Lorenz Says:

    The mix with the Ostrich is the “Last Leg Mix” – a pretty strange dub Mix. It’s pretty rare, but I wouldn’t put it past Paul to have it!

    I could easily find the re-remix (“Legacy”) on CD but never this version. Thank you so much for making it available.

    Am I alone in thinking that once AON left ZTT (and Trevor Horn) and joined China Records their sound changed considerably and became more – dare I say – mainstream? Don’t get me wrong, I was (am) still a big fan, but post-ZTT I think they lost some of their unique weirdness which originally drew me to them.

    Big fan of AON here too. Any further releases of theirs would be greatly appreciated. Hoops And Mallets…aaaah in burninghteground mastered glory. Thanks Paul.

    Hi Paul,

    I am new to your website. I am writing a lot here on this one particular post because this is my first post on here. I am a 45 year old male, who grew up as a kid and teenager back in the 80’s. I am still obsessed with all the 80’s music I loved back in the day. I am a big fan of 70’s Punk, 80’s New Wave, 90’s Alternative and loads of new stuff, electro-clash etc… I have ripped a big chunk of my own vinyl collection, I love the way vinyl sounds. To me vinyl records are worth more than gold, I see them as priceless and worth the time ripping to CD, FLAK and mp3. I am finding lots of great stuff here on your website, and just wanted to introduce myself and say hi for the first time.

    Your website is amazing.

    Also wanted to say how much I appreciate your effort and close attention to important details, such as using a high-end turntable, professional-quality needle. The high quality 320kbps mp3’s are also wonderful. Ensuring that all the work you put in to this website is worth the time.

    The Art Of Noise is one of my favorite’s, and I honestly think with all their stuff they released, this one, Legs, this remix and 7″ edit are my most favorite of theirs of all time. I also love Moments In Love, Beat Box, Peter Gunn, Paranoimia, Close (To The Edit) etc… they had such a unique sound back in their day, and their music is still fresh to me even today. Thanks again for all you do! – memoryboy
