Surgeon on Who's Afraid...?

Since exploding onto the techno scene in 1995, DJ and producer Anthony Child aka Surgeon has been remoulding contemporary techno ever since.

He recently gave an interview to Nokia's Sounds Like Me project about the album that inspires him the most, Art of Noise's Who's Afraid of the Art of Noise.

"For me it’s a forgotten gem in the history of English electronic music. I fondly remember listening to it again and again... They are more personally important than Kraftwerk or Yellow Magic Orchestra. If Kraftwerk are the calculating robotic face of Teutonic electronic music then surely The Art Of Noise personify the eccentric English gentleman tinkering in his garden shed... The whole package that made it mysterious and exciting."
