Amoeba Review

Tiffany Anders 09/02/2010

 The pioneers of electronic music, White Noise, released their truly eerie and innovative debut, An Electric Storm, in 1969. This wonderfully progressive band stemmed from the BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop, who are most well known for composing the theme to Doctor Who, and have been hailed as the first ever electronic band. The group also included the little known heroine of electronics Delia Derbyshire who was not only blazing new paths in music, but for women in music as a whole. The album is genuinely bizarre, as the group uses mostly tape loops and manual editing to create their sonic landscape within their very psychedelic and avant-garde song structures. The group oddly enough attracted the attention of Chris Blackwell, who headed Island Records at the time and released the album. This is surprising given the fact that the album is clearly nowhere near commercial, even for today’s standards. Regardless of its lack of being able to make a splash for the masses, the album is extremely important in the world of electronic music and is a wonderfully engaging listen from start to finish.
