Friday Factory Tune: ‘Noise Annoys’

By December 3, 2010Friday Factory Tune

Just because manufacturers object to OSHA’s new guidance that would mandate redundant, unnecessary and expensive noise abatement technology on top of already effective hearing protection doesn’t mean manufacturers are blase about harmful, loud sounds in the workplace. On the contrary. Noise annoys.

At least that’s what the Buzzcocks always said.

Here’s the group doing the song in 2007. Thirty years of loud music. Better write them up, OSHA.

UPDATE: Watching the two videos in succession, one’s struck by the changes in editing styles in music videos. The 2007 video suffers from the bane of many new music videos, so many jump cuts you can never see the performers play their instruments.
