Both Derbyshire and Hodgson assumed pseudonyms in the credits: Li de la Russe & Nikki St. George respectively. Two of the tracks are co-written by the pair, who also worked together to set up the organisation and studio project “Unit Delta Plus”, which was extensively involved in the promotion and exploration of electronic music.

Outside of a few equally adventurous ‘60s releases – the debut album from US psychedelic pioneers The United States Of America, for instance – this is pretty much uncharted territory, particularly for a major label release. On '‘My Game Of Loving'’, a dozen multi-tracked voices built to a panting orgasm, while the closing '‘Black Mass An Electric Storm In Hell'’ ushers the record to a freeform close in a clatter of freeform drums, cavernous echo and chilling, animalistic screams. Perhaps unsurprisingly, An Electric Storm would struggle to find an audience on its release, and in the following years, great leaps in synthesiser technology somewhat diminished White Noise’s experimental achievements. One thing that would remain timeless, however, were the songs themselves. An Electric Storm would later become a key inspiration on bands like Add (N) To X and Broadcast, synthesiser explorers who picked through these primitive, vestigial sound experiments, took careful notes, and eventually, set out to craft their own futuristic pop lullabies.
