BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987
“Dragnet” is an instrumental theme from the radio and television show of the same name. It was composed by Walter Schumann for the radio show, and was also used on the subsequent television series and later syndication of the TV series under the name “Badge 714″. The theme is in two parts: an opening signature “Main Title” (the ominous “Dum – - – de – DUM – DUM”) and the “Dragnet March” used over the end credits.
In 1987 avant-garde synthpop group The Art Of Noise released their own version of of the song for the Tom Hanks & Dan Aykroyd film “Dragnet.” On December 3, 1988 the single peaked at #94 in the UK but failed to chart in the US despite their record labels efforts to push remixes of “Dragnet” into the dance clubs. This mix is sometimes refered to as the ’88 mix.
The b-side track “Acton Art” is a sample/ cut up of previous Art Of Noise masterpeices.
