Were the band puppets of the ZTT record label and producer Trevor Horn?
A version of Two Tribes was originally recorded for a BBC John Peel session in October 1982. It is quite clear that the basic structure of the song - including the bass-line and percussion arrangement - was already established, prior to any involvement from ZTT or producer Trevor Horn.
Of course, without Horn, the band, quite simply, would never have achieved anywhere near the same level of success that they enjoyed. He gave the songs the polish they needed to reach the top of the music charts. The band could play their instruments, but not up to Horn's high standards, and they had little input into how the final single sounded.
