Orange and Payne are known for their long association with Gary Numan. Chris Payne has co-written «Fade To Grey» with Midge Ure and Billy Currie (both of Ultravox), which originally became a hit single for the New Romatic outfit Visage in 1981. The track was re-recorded by the duo and released under the name of Big Noise only and got released on 7"/12" on the President label in 1989 (Catalogue number PT [12-]580). The B-side recording was «I Want Your Love». The song is also to find on the album, along with the extended remix of «Fade To Grey».
Big Noise UK sounds like a typical synthpop band but their long-term collaboration with Gary Numan didn't prevent them to develope an own style. Though co-writer Chris Payne recorded finally «Fade To Grey» of his own so don't expect another Visage epigone or Ultravox sound-a-like. The song got a unique interpretation, actually the best I've ever heard apart from the Visage original. The first track «Shame On You» creates an atmosphere reminding most likely of Kraftwerk. If the music on this album should be compared to other 80ies protegés at all, then I would mention Rational Youth, Information Society, New Order, Jimmy Nail and Depeche Mode. «Good Morning Baby» was released in 1991 but it carries some flavour of the 80ies into the new decade. Orange and Payne went not so far as some other early 90ies synthpop heroes e.g. The Shamen, Blue Pearl (Project of Killing Joke's drummer Martin 'Youth' Glover) or New Order so you will hear no influences of the upcoming Acid House scene on this record which actually should make the album catchier to a wider audience. But released by an independent label it has missed unfortunately.
