My original concept for CTRL was for all the tracks to be titled as BASIC code blocks (or some variation of those). I was harkening back to my days using the C64 computers and I suppose I had an idea that each of the tracks would be an executable program when entered in order. I did abandon this idea but the PEEK command stayed within the title of this song.
The song is a simple phrasing with a common root and the style is more about the percussive elements than the melody. It has a but of a middle-eastern vibe in the bassline.
Peek and ‘Orrble It Is, both on this album are inspired by each other in mood and arrangement, but not so much that you would notice.
The original album version.
An unreleased alternate ‘dub’ version which uses Fairlight CMI samples in the style of a well known Art Of Noise song.
