Black Box: This Means War!
Phil Sutcliffe, Q, December 1989
There's insurrection in the ranks. Stock Aitken & Waterman's supremacy has been overthrown by a troupe of battle-scarred no-holds-barred dance producers from Bologna. Phil Sutcliffe meets the mixmasters who masquerade as Black Box, and traces the sample-strewn, writ-filled route by which Italian Euro-disco evolved into the invincible house soundtrack of the late '80s.
