Mark Cunningham's book pins the credit (or blame) on Hugh Padgham, Peter
Gabriel and Phil Collins. The track is "Intruder" from Peter Gabriel's
third solo album (melting face cover).

Thanks Karl, but this was still three(!) years after Low. So where did Visconti/Davies/Bowie get the idea for the sound from. (Think I have to refresh my Bowie. Hey, Philip, you use to be updated!!!)
