Howard Jones, "No One Is To Blame [7" Single Version]" (1986)

Cambridge GCE A-Level Examination in Music
Essay Question
30 marks

"For its release as a single in 1986, Howard Jones's 'No One Is To Blame' was re-produced by Phil Collins and Hugh Padgham. With its whirls and clicks, this version is the first, or at least an early, example of glitch, a style that has become increasingly popular and prominent in recent years, influencing the electronic dance genre, but also everything from hip-hop to pop and rock (in the work of underground acts like Styrofoam or Telefon Tel Aviv, or even mainstream ones like Radiohead)." Assess this claim, which implies that Phil Collins gave birth to Thom Yorke, making sure to support your answer with specific examples.
