A year before the release of Pleasure Dome, Modern Mechanical Music released Persia as their debut single on Sunset Records in 1986. Persia was written by Matt Warren and Nick H who joined forces with Miguel Garcia a.k.a. Michaelangelo to record the single at Reid Hyams’ Chicago Trax Recording Studio.
Joining Modern Mechanical Music were percussionist Joe Pusateri and Tom O’Callaghan who joined with Matt and Michaelangelo to add vocal chants. Tom O’Callaghan took charge of sequencing, while Matt and Michaelangelo mixed and produced the three tracks. This included Persia (Club Mix), Persia (Dub) and Doo Doo Daa (Bonus Beats) which was written by Matt, Michaelangelo and Tom O’Callaghan. These tracks became Modern Mechanical Music’s debut single which included the Club Mix.
