In 1983 British impresario Malcolm McLaren released Duck Rock, an album which mixed up influences from Africa and America, including hip-hop. The album proved to be highly influential in bringing hip-hop to a wider audience in the UK. Two of the singles from the album ("Buffalo Gals" and "Double Dutch") became major chart hits on both sides of the Atlantic.

Guest musicians featured on this album include Trevor Horn, Anne Dudley, J. J. Jeczalik. Side recordings that these three artists did in-between Duck Rock takes would eventually become the first album for Art of Noise. Clips of the World's Famous Supreme Team radio show appear between songs.
