Into Battle with the Art of Noise

Into Battle with the Art of Noise (titled simply The Art of Noise in the US) is the title of an EP by the Art of Noise—its first release, and also the first release by ZTT Records. The record represented the first instalment in the ZTT's Incidental Series (catalogue number ZTIS 100).

Into Battle... constructed tracks using early sampling techniques centred around the Fairlight CMI workstation, which at that time represented the state-of-the-art in musical technology.

Two tracks from the EP ("Beat Box" and "Moments in Love") were subsequently featured on the group's first LP, Who's Afraid of the Art of Noise?, although "Beat Box" was presented in a substantially modified form, designated "Diversion One." The original EP version of "Beat Box" has since (unofficially) become known as "Diversion Zero."

In 1986, Who's Afraid was combined with portions of Into Battle... and the 1985 "Moments in Love" 12-inch single, to form the Daft compilation.

In 2003, the original Into Battle... EP was issued on CD for the first time, but the release inexplicably included "Diversion One" of "Beat Box" in place of "Diversion Zero."

The EP also features as part of disc four of the 2006 Art of Noise boxed set And What Have You Done With My Body, God? This version restores the original "Beat Box" and features the 5:10 edit of "Moments in Love" from the cassette issue of the EP, neither track having been officially released on CD before.

The original EP cover art was derived from the Ghent Altarpiece.

The EP's title and elements of its visual and musical style were parodied by the group Mainframe with their 1983 12-inch single, "Into Trouble with the Noise of Art".
