Although credited nowhere on this release, all recordings were remastered by Jack Dangers from the original tapes.

The version of "Reanimator" featured here is exclusive to the "Armed Audio Warfare" releases.

The songs, "Kneel & Buzz" and "Kick That Man" are incorrectly switched around in the tracklisting. Track 6 is "Kick That Man", and track 7 is "Kneel & Buzz".

Track 9, "Give Your Body Its Freedom", is a different edit of the song on the "Strap Down" single.

Track 10 is identified as "Mars Needs Women", while on the original 1990 cassette and CD pressings of "Armed Audio Warfare" it is spelled "Marrs Needs Women". This song is a different version of "Mars Needs Women", which appears the "God O.D." single.

Despite the above discrepancies, the individual track notes from the booklet read:

1: Unreleased "burnt" remix of "God O.D.", recorded December 1988.
2, 11: Unreleased track recorded February 1988.
3: From Sweatbox compilation "Bark" released May 1988.
4: From unreleased 12" [SOX 037] scheduled for release during August 1988.
5, 6, 7: From "Suck Hard" debut e.p. limited to 1500 copies, released December 1987.
8: From unreleased "Suck Hard" CD single, recorded January 1988.
9: Original version of "Strap Down" released June 1988.
10: Flip side of "God O.D." single released December 1988.

Obscured by the stylized booklet design, additional notes read:

Meat Beat Manifesto's debut album, "Armed Audio Warfare" was scheduled for release in May 1988. The masters to that album were damaged in a fire at Meat Beat HQ, Berwick St, Soho. New tracks were written and recorded, then released as the double album "Storm the Studio" (SDX 040/CD) in May 1989. This album is a compilation of previously unreleased and rare tracks that embody the initial furore of Meat Beat's manifesto. Had "Armed Audio Warfare" been released as planned, it might have sounded like this.

Notes from sleeve - Meat Beat Manifesto's debut album, Armed Audio Warfare was scheduled for release in may 1988. The masters to that album were damaged in a fire at Meat Beat HQ, Berwick St, Soho. Dangers and Stephens had formed the English pop group Perennial Divide in 1986 with Paul Freeguard and released the first few Meat Beat Manifesto Audio Warfare is the second full-length release and first compilation of electronic music group Meat Beat Manifesto. It was originally scheduled as the group's first album for release in May 1988, but the master tapes were damaged in a fire, necessitating the rewriting and recording of the material, which was released as Storm the Studio. Armed Audio Warfare is actually a compilation of unreleased and rare tracks that give a flavour of how that first album may have sounded had it been released.

Meat Beat Manifesto - Give Your Body Its Freedom. Meat Beat Manifesto - Mars Needs Women. Armed Audio Warfare indeed What a perfect title for this massively punishing collection of rare and previously unreleased songs that give a glimpse into what Meat Beat Manifesto's debut album might have sounded like had its masters not been destroyed in a fire. The 11 songs here see Jack Dangers operating in the same fusion of dance, hip-hop, and industrial styles that would make 99 and Satyricon the cult classics they are, but here things are much more intense. One could even make a case that Armed Audio Warfare is one of the hardest and harshest albums of all time. More By Meat Beat Manifesto. See Audio Warfare CD, Album. LD Records. LD 9048 CD.

However, Armed Audio Warfare doesnt include any of the 3 genres listed above, but instead sticks to their original sound of electro-industrial that most certainly works like a charm. I mean, when bands latch themselves onto their main sound when they are in the process of another release, money says it will be highly favorable. However, I wouldnt consider Armed Audio Warfare to be their best, or most shockingly brilliant album in the books, but it definitely is a mellow and chaotic adventure produced by the two men. This time, Meat Beat Manifesto fiddles with a variety of Industrial them. Armed Audio Warfare Remastered, 2010. Genocide, 05:15. Repulsion, 03:24. Mister President, 05:58. Reanimator, 04:09.
